Abel Nippers Worth The Money?

#1
Anyone have experience with the Abel Nippers that in plain colors run about $50? I was also looking at the Loon Nip-N-Sip which does the same thing for considerably less, but not sure as to the quality of the Loon product since I've only used their floatant. I welcome all thoughts and opinions!

They might last years but how many drug store fingernail clippers could you buy for the same?

Ya gonna buy some of those $300 Van Staal fishing pliers too?

Sorry, not my cuppa tea! :)

Haha :D my buddy told me the same thing today, however those can't stand up to saltwater worth a damn. But it's just like people who smoke $30 Padron Anniversary cigars, while others prefer a more reasonably priced Fuente...it's preference.

Yeah, I'm just givin' ya some crap! ;)

If you want those Abel nippers and have the money to get 'em, go for the gusto!!

It kinda burned my ass to pay $139 for my Orvis Guide Pack but I'm glad I did as I absolutely love it!

Think about how much we spend on rods, reels, lines, etc. What's 50 bucks?

Well, unless you're backing it out of your court appointed child support!

Since I don't fish in the Salt, I don't worry about my nippers. I keep three pairs in my Truck and at any given time I can find none of them. I don't put things back where they belong. I just set them down and forget where I set them at. These things happen when you are as old as I am.

They might fall under the seats or under the floor mats. Or I might put them away(Fat chance of that). Then I pull out my fingernail clipper and cut my leader. These cheap things work for me.

Holy cow! 50 bucks for nippers??? For that kind'a money they'd better do something more than just snip leader material.

Geeez.... I'd be embarrassed to build a product similar to fingernail clippers and sell the thing for 50 bucks... unless it has some hidden attribute. :)
