Abel Hemostats
 
Abel Reels has developed a new hemostat that is engineered to last a lifetime. It has a locking device on it, but can be used without it. This is not an option with most hemostats, which lock automatically when you tighten them.

These things feel bomb proof, look pretty cool, and are available in fish graphics as well. They are built with aircraft aluminum and stainless steel. I got to play with a pair the other day at the Abel factory, and I'm sure these will be a hit just like their nippers.

These were just shown publicly for the first time at iCAST in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago.

Check these out:

Looks like a pair of glorified needle nose pliers.

This thread has the same potential as the Nippers thread. :rolleyes:

Jaybo, did I wade into the deep end with this? I don't work for them, and I'm not a salesman. I just like their stuff, and I think it's a pretty cool design. I wasn't aware of any controversy surrounding Abel. Their nippers are their most successful product to date. What am I missing?

Are the open heart surgery type better that the stainless ones I picked up in and Army/Navy surplus store 30 years ago?

Get one in blue and paint your tiefast tool white. You're set for the 4th every year :)
