The Pitbull Tackle Heavy Duty Split Ring Plier offers the same great performance as our standard Split Ring Plier but with a newly redesigned jaw specifically made for opening stronger split rings. Featuring a Locking-Jaw design to keep the strongest split rings firmly in place. The angle is created in such a way where any user can open up 300lb split rings with ease. When rigging for heavy fish you need a tool that can stand up to the challenge, and this split ring plier delivers.
What sets these pliers apart from the rest is a double lock head design. This feature holds the split ring firmly in place and does not allow it to slip out of the pliers grip. Traditionally a split ring plier when closed will hold the split ring in place, however the split ring can rotate up and down within the pliers grip. The double lock design on the Pitbull Tackle Heavy Duty Split Ring Plier grabs and holds split rings in place, keeping them perpendicular to the pliers at all times. This ensures a steady and consistent angle every time, allowing for easier placement or removal of hooks and lures. Once in your hand you can feel the pliers open and lock in the split rings with ease.
Pitbull Tackle also wanted to give the user an improvement on traditional thinner handles and longer bulkier designs. The handle was made thicker, designed to naturally fit into the palm of your hand. Next, a non-slip material was chosen to give the user superb grip, and a bright color choice was chosen to make the pliers easily visible to the user. These pliers are lightweight and can easily fit in your pocket or tool holder, yet are constructed with corrosion resistant stainless steel to give the user both durability and functionality.
These split ring pliers are great. I use them for the Owner Ultra #9 split rings and they work great. Don't let the small size fool you. These pliers do as advertised. The design does not allow them to twist.
There's JUST not many tackle manufacturers making topnotch fishing gear in the US....Japan produces very good rods & reals Etc. So that leaves us with the
economic Chin'easy option....I hate supporting socialists ....!!!
I've got heavier duty split rings that I just couldn't open with a standard pliers. Plus the device on this is totally different than most and you'll be pleasantly surprised how well it works.
