Re: Abel nippers: Are they worth it?
I've had my pair for about a year now. They've held up well. I had a fishpond nipper (gave it away). It was okay but felt a little too small, and I have smaller hands. I like the heft in the Abel pair. I like the replaceable cutters (fishponds aren't I believe and their asking too much for something you can't replace).
That said, if I lost this one (thank God for zingers), I'd make do until I got another pair as a gift.
