I will look for a lost pair on the river bank and use thoseI believe the main issue was the cost of a line that may only last one year. I’m pretty certain no one would want to be buying Abel nippers for £85 if they lasted one year; they are built to last a lifetime, or until you lose them.
£186 for a pretty one with a lanyard now!Doubt you’ll find many lost ones as the majority wear them on a lanyard, I bought the Abel lanyard as I’m a super tart but any would do the job. I think I paid around £70 for my fish graphic ones when the exchange rate was favourable. Bought them and a Ross Evolution LT for effectively half price.
Those days are long gone and now we pay through the nose because we the people decided to **** our economy in the name of freedom.
I used nail clippers for 30 years, they do the job and cost nothing.
But I dumped my last one in the Rio Grande, went a bit mad and bought this - it's excellent. It's 420 stainless steel has a zinger that has a 1m tape measure instead of wire, an eye cleaner, hook sharpener and nail knot tool. And a clipper. £14.
