To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was actually a gift so I’ve not used them. The recipient said it was awesome & couldn’t wait to go fishing to use them. I thought It was a great price. It’s so hard to buy for people but if there’s something you know they like to do like going fishing, you know they’re going to need these.
The metal fish jaw grip works well, as advertised. Small unit will expand around 7/8inch max, and only 1/2inch depth fully open, so make sure fish are not long jaw or just use with smaller fish. Can't use this to hold a fish to weigh it as the wrist strap is flimsy band used for free ID badge holders or toys. Don't pull on it with more than 5 lbs or strap pulls out of handle. Light duty strap.
These pliers are not very sturdy and poorly designed. The jaws get misaligned under moderate pressure and the cutting blades have a gap at the rear (which is where your fishing line goes when you try to cut it). The small gripper is OK unless you plan to catch something over 3 or 4 lbs.
