Abel Nipper (Basic Black)

Article number: P-15253
Availability: Out of stock
Abel once again raised the level of what a fishing tool could by taking one of the most basic accessories, and re-envisioning it with high quality parts, and perfected performance. Instead of the typical cutter-and-anvil design, the Abel Nipper features two jaws with knife grade steel cutting blades that cleanly snip 8X tippet, heavy leader material, and even braided backing. Overbuilt? Yes. Overkill? Definitely not. The Abel Nipper has quickly become one of the most essential items to include in a fly fisher’s, and fly tyer’s kit. SPECIFICATIONS: Designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA Anodized 6061-T6 aluminum body construction Replaceable jaws - machined out of premium grade Crucible CPM S35VN stainless steel, then heat treated to 58-60rc Engineered to cut 7X - 100 lb mono and braid Two Year limited warranty on the jaws after initial purchase Pin - 316 stainless steel

First of all kudos to royal gorge anglers for having these in stock. I have been searching for them for a while and they have the best price to boot. Shipped super quickly and arrived in great shape. In terms of the nippers, they look and feel great. The machining is very good and they are obviously of good quality. The blades on them are super sharp. I have tested cutting from 6x fluoro all the way to 100lb flouro and it cuts it with ease. Even is able to cut braid which is impressive for a pair of nippers. Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with these and it will be something you can depend on for many years to come.
