Thread: Hatch Nipper

  1. #1

    Default Hatch Nipper

    We have known this product was coming as it was an award recipient at last summers IFTD Show. I've yet to see one but it is now on Hatch's web site from which I quote below. You can see it features a hook eye clearing needle in a recess near its hinge.

    "The Hatch Nipper is crafted from 6061T6 aluminum and protected with type II Anodize. The cutters are made from Tungsten Carbide for abrasion resistance and reliable cuts through all fishing line material". From Hatch Outdoors web site, available in four colors, lanyard included for $100

    Quick.
    We need a shootout among:

    Abel
    Simms
    Hatch
    LLBean
    White River
    Orvis
    Fish Pond
    Revlon

    nippers.

    Come on! $100 for nippers? A comp price for a reel would be at least $900. But, oh yeah, they do that too. I notice from their website that you can accessorize that nipper (and lets not forget that you get a lanyard too) with a $38 water bottle and a $25 bottle opener. $163 for... oh my god ... nipper, water bottle and bottle opener. OR...maybe a new modest priced rod or reel?

    Hell that is a bargain, my wife paid $25 for tweezers the other day.

    While I personally am not compelled to reach back to my wallet to acquire a pair I bet the folks who are compelled certainly will enjoy using them.


    Like Ard I will stick with my fire engine red set of Abel Nippers and Hemo's

    Ehh, I'm sticking with my "Custom Classic" nippers in both freshwater and offshore line test versions.

    At only $100 the drag must suck big time.

    Come-on, Dean, they've released them with plenty of save-up time for the Holidays. I'm speculating that they may feature a stacked, sealed, multi-element, graduated pressure hinge.

    For the few hold-out that don't yet have Abel Nippers, how does this design appear to compare?

    $100.00???? The ONLY way I'd own these if I were to hang them from the review mirror of my Ferrari.
