Good beginner price, difficult to use

Reviewer: from Litchfield, NH US

I received these pliers as part of a JS brand tool kit. I bought the kit because it's of it's fair price point for a beginner fly tyer like myself. These pliers are probably the weakest link of the set. I found that I've broken and lost grip on more hackle feathers than I've successfully turned. They just don't seem to grab them tight enough, because anytime i try to make a somewhat tight turn of the hackle, they slip right off. I'm going to invest in a better pair.

Easier for beginners

Reviewer: from Corvallis, OR US

This is a much easier to handle plier for beginners, since you never need to switch hands while winding hackle. I have pulled it off the hackle before, so slightly lighter tension is needed, but I haven't broken any hackle stems either like with my english hackle plier.

Good tool

Reviewer: from Buffalo, NY US

I picked one of these up just to give em a try. Much easier than my standard english pliers. I ordered 2 by accident so I was able to give one away. My buddy was happy with it. Give it a try. It's a nice tool.

2inch hackle pliers

Reviewer: from WARNER ROBINS, GA USA

This tool is perfect for tying soft hackles. It has the weight needed to keep your hackle taught unlike other hackle pliers. The 2 inch size rotates easy enough and is small enough to work your bobbin around. Try this tool you will not be disappointed.
