Rated 1 out of 5 by cruzah Forceps don't grab well.
As the title says, these do not grab that well. Closing the forceps takes quite a bit of force to get them to lock down 100%.
I bought these as a replacement for a pair I inherited from a nurse back in 1975...the 1975 pair grab MUCH better than these...maybe they'll get better after breaking them in, but that's my first impression.

Nice tool for trout fishing to do many jobs . Good size , well made,and fair price . This is my second tool like this which is still functioning well after many years and is used for larger hooks and or fish .

These are the best forceps that I now own. Strong clamping power and great feel in the hand. You will be as glad that you bought these as I am. Dr. Slick made me a believer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liambean Durable and work well
Only a beginner to fly fishing but bought these at the suggestion of more experienced fishing guides. "Buy quality as cheaper gear costs you more in the long run to replace." Have only used these a few times but they are durable and attach nicely to my vest. Should last for many fishing trips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EagleBill Excellent and more!
High-quality, solid construction. Does what is advertised and more. In the photo you can see the flat-blade screwdriver, useful for reel repairs, etc., and a needle (enclosed between the handles), useful for cleaning cement, paint, etc., from hook eyes. Put a couple of extra flies, a spool of tippet, and these scissor-forceps in your pocket and you've got all you need for those after-supper casts off the dock.

by BobbyEarl They are just that GOOD!
In a pinch, I bought another brand--when I got home, I bought two more pairs of Dr. Slick Scissor Forceps so that I would never be in a pinch again. These guys are just that much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ratsfish sooo good
I'm thrilled Beans carries Dr. Slick products. These are reliable in both salt and freshwater, but always remember to rinse after salt water use. I always have a few pairs of scissor snips on me while on the river. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OmiG Dr. Slick for the Dr.
Purchased this for our son who recently graduated from Medical School .. partly as a kind of 'joke' and partly because it looked like it might be something he'd like (for fishing of course!!) He REALLY likes it, so, it worked out really well!!
