The Manley fishing pliers have been around for a while, they’re a very useful tool to have and have proven to be durable and reliable for when fishing. The jaws have a parallel action so it’s easier to grab onto hooks and anything else you need. They have a durable set of jaws that will work well for cutting mono, braid and even a hook if you’re in a pinch. Both sizes come with the nylon sheath as a package. The 5″ size is not spring assisted so they are a smaller manual set while the 6 1/2″ does have a spring assist for those who want it for ease of use.
