Abel is well known for their high quality fly reels, and more recently their quality line of accessories. The newest product to their line is “The Abel Nippers”. These are not your dollar store fingernail clippers… in both quality and function. Abel is proud to have the nippers “designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA”. Besides the high quality domestic parts and construction, these feature replaceable jaws and a integrated hook cleaner.
The true test of nippers… DO THEY CUT?
YES! and very well.
The Abel nippers are unique in that they will cut anything. No more is there a need for light nippers and heavy cutters. From 7x to 100lb fluorocarbon, these nippers cut. (Yes, I pulled out 100lb fluorocarbon, and it cut like butter). Don’t believe it? Abel does. Enough so, they offer a 2yr warranty on the jaws.
The hook eye cleaner and the removable jaws close with a heavy duty spring and there is a free-moving stainless lanyard ring. All around this is a quality product that is built to last and completely safe for saltwater use.
