Fishing pliers
Looking at upgrading and wondering what everyone likes using. Hesitant on pulling the trigger on Van Staals

When the VS’s just aren’t enough…

Danco AI designed pliers

For $700 a pair, may as well get two!

I have a pair of Abels that are probably around 20 years old or so.

If you pull the trigger on the Van Staal, they will last the rest of your life, unless you loose them.

If you don't want to spend that much look at Danco Pliers. They have a variety of models

re: Fishing pliers
But seriously, I know a few people with Van Staal’s and they love them. Built to last, nice and light weight.

I’ve been using Calcutta brand and Kroc brand aluminum pliers for the last several years and have been very happy with them… especially considering they were only $25-30

Father in Law gifted me a pair of Danco Premio pliers. I like them. Not Van Staal level balling though.

I bought a pair of aluminum Landers pliers for $20-30 a few years ago to wade with and have been happy with them. They have good cutters you can replace if they rust or get dull but I haven't needed to.

The Danco’s look solid. Found an 8” pair online for around $180.

re: Fishing pliers
I use harbor freight $2.99 pliers in a variety of styles. Always have them handy and won't cry if I lose them. I buy 2 pairs of needle nose every time I go now... I am not discounting fancy shite for your boat, but pliers have legs and I can just leave the harbor freight ones in the rocket launcher, it holds 2-3 pairs in one holder and doesn't hurt when they vanish.

re: Fishing pliers
Van staals are definitely the best. That being said I lose pliers way too often so I stick with the $30 danco’s. They’re the best cheap pliers I’ve found, and they actually hold up surprisingly well. Can swap the blades on cutters after they dull for like $5 too

Get the Van Staals, the cutting blade lasts a long time. Very important cutting braid on the fly.

re: Fishing pliers
ACE brand vice grips and kids scissors do 99% of everything I need for under $20.
Add a crimper and split ring pliers for the other stuff.
Rinse them off and occasionally add a bit of oil to get a couple years of life.

re: Fishing pliers
I have about one good pair and the rest are aluminum but all within reach anywhere on my boat. I spend thousands and thousands a year on fishing shite but 290 pliers are nuts

re: Fishing pliers
Danco. I personally like the ones with the split ring hook on the end so you can really yank a tough hook out without it slipping from the teeth.
