If you are not the type to blame yourself for spending the money, then yes they are absolutely worth it!

Correct, buy once and look after them, you rarely see them second hand as no one wants to part with them once they’ve used them.

I'd be scared I fell in with that lump around my neck 😂

I couldn't justify paying that price but I'm pretty easy to please on the nipper front, but if I did like them I'd buy a pair, they should last for ages and we all enjoy a bit of buyers pride.

Those look amazing are they the trout version?
Yeah mate, have had them nearly ten years now with probably 1000 odd trips using them in that time! Still cut well but could see using them on braid regularly blunting them quicker, mine have only been used on braid and heavier lines infrequently.

I’ve almost pulled the trigger on the Brookie coloured ones a few times now but is it a bit too tarty matching nippers to reel?🤔

Haha it’s rare that I sell my favourite bits, I did used to flip a lot of gear on that I bought and then didn’t like, I’ve got my kit to where I like it now with only the odd incoming in mind. Reel wise I don’t think you can ever have too many!

My mrs just rolls her eyes at this point! I still haven’t told her about the new Abel reel though, I don’t think she’d understand that purchase.

Nice as they are I find them a bit heavy and bulky on my vests, I still have an original surgical steel set of Veniards and Hardy and they are really compact and light and still cut well and can be re sharpened.
I have a set of fishpond With retractor I could be tempted to part with :)
