Hi Carl,

I have never seen a pair. I've always used Thompson squeeze type pincers with the brass on one side and rubber on the other. I can't recall what these cost but can assure you they were not 40 dollars.

Hi Karl--

I haven't used them either--- after trying a bunch of different types (teardrop, Griffin rotary, EZ pushbutton test clip style) I've mostly settled on inexpensive no name "English" style hackle pliers. And, as a result, I've resigned myself to accepting the occasional broken stem and associated stream of "gosh darnits" that ensues.

Here's a pic-- these are Danvilles for $2.75, there are also smaller "midge versions":
