Abel Automatics Fishing Pliers- These Abel Pliers are precision-machined in two sizes, yielding a remarkably lightweight aluminum plier with tool steel cutting blades.
BUILT TO LAST
In Abel's original notarized tests, these pliers made 1,000+ cuts of 80-pound test Monel wire and 100 cuts of 250-pound Nylon-coated braided wire. After that, they still cut 7X mono.
Abel Model #4 Pliers are 6.5 inches and just 4.1 ounces. They can be used for either fresh and saltwater fishing tasks- theyll remove a hook, cut 250-pound braided wire or any size monofilament. These pliers are a necessity when rigging saltwater leaders and are designed for this task. And, they even have a built-in bottle opener!
Abel Model #2 Pliers are 5.5 inches in length and weigh 2.9 ounces. They are designed for all freshwater, light saltwater, and other fly-fishing uses, capable of bending down the barb on a dry fly or cutting 175-pound braided wire.
Secure your pliers to your belt or wading shorts with an optional hand-tooled Latigo leather carrying sheath; and be sure to see our pliers/knife combo. Abel Pliers come with a curled safety lanyard that may be secured to your belt or its own Latigo leather sheath. The curled lanyard will stretch approximately three feet. Unless youre fishing almost every day, it is unlikely our tool steel jaws will ever wear out. If it becomes necessary, Abel will replace them and correctly align the pliers jaws at the factory for $20 plus shipping.
