To be fair, I have owned a BMW and I have owned a VW. I will guaran-dang-tee that the VW was the better buy, dollar for dollar by a huge margin. Just as with nippers, there's nothing wrong with going high end...if it's that important to you for whatever reason. And "It pleases me" can be a perfectly valid reason. But let's be real, if substandard nipper performance has diminished a days fishing enjoyment, you take things way too seriously.

HA! I did it! I made the push to page 20!

Is there a door prize...maybe a new nippers?
