Favorite hackle pliers 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from TN

Like others, I have tried different types of hackle pliers and have settled on these. I love the soft feel and the ability to simply wind your finger around the hook to wrap your hackle or other material. I like that you can control the orientation of the feather with how you position it in the grip. These also fit perfectly in the first slot of the Stonfo base on Elite and Transformer models. The only downsides are minor: I get occasional misalignment with the grip portion so the jaws don't fully overlap laterally, but it's easy to move them back closer together. They don't provide the death grip that the spring loop hackle pliers do, but I have yet to have a hackle slip out.

My favorite hackle plier by far. 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Collinsville, OK

Love this thing. I used to have a spring loaded one like this that I liked a little better, but in comparison to the plethora of other hackle pliers I have tried, this is the best. I may get another because they are also helpful when tying a blood not when you just need to hold your line still.

SOFT TOUCH RING HACKLE PLIERS 4 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Minnesota

This tool works well for applying hackles to hook sizes #16 and smaller. I use it to apply parachute hackles on smaller flies. It is light and easy to use. The tension on the gripper is light enough that smaller hackles will pull out before breaking, yet strong enough to complete the hackle wrapping. It takes a little time to get used to pulling lighter so as not to pull out the hackle. Once you get that down, it works like a charm. I highly recommend this tool for applying small hackles to flies.

My favorite all-around pliers 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Des Plaines, IL

Out of 6 styles of hackle pliers I own, these are my favorite all-around. Preferred for the most delicate work and hackle angle control.

Gentle on stems 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Athens, GA USA

I was looking for a hackle plier that would be a little more gentle on hackle stems, and this one fits the bill. Another great, simple tool from Stonfo!
