    Love the arrowhead retractor! That thing is awesome.

    My guess is that many of the nippers with custom paint jobs are given as gifts. What do you get for the fisherman who has everything? Fancy nippers! I wouldn’t spend this kind of money for nippers, but I certainly would be happy if someone gave me a pair.

    Never liked the spring on the Simms- I hear it's stronger now. The one on mine is pretty flacid- so they live in my leader building kit

    In all seriousness I got a deal on them and I like the idea of replaceable jaws. The cheap 30 dollar nippers wear out in a year, and these were 40 bucks. No brainer really.

    I like the Orvis nippers mainly bc they fit my big fingers to hold appropriately. Smaller nippers or clippers get jumbled all the time with my large hands. To me they are worth the $50 I paid
