Nice plier
March 8, 2020
The line cutter on the side of the plier really makes it easy to cut mono or braid.
Cons-The point of the plier is sharp and punctures the Plier Holder. I had to file down the sharpness to prevent further damage.

Lightweight and pretty sturdy. It may be me being too rough with the pliers but the pliers twist a bit when I am using heavier split rings. I have to force the pliers back into place.
ProsEasy handling and well made.
ConsTwists a little when working with heavier splits.

These pliers do what most pliers do, though they are very light. So far everything works correctly, but time will tell.

By Brad G.
Horrible plier, not meant for saltwater
November 29, 2015
Split ring tool will not open large saltwater split rings. Also the cutters are worthless. The blades move around such that they won't cut 50 pound mono. When I tried to tighten cutter blades for the 5th time, the allen head bolt stripped.
ConsEverything. Split ring tool too small. Cutter blades will not hold position and therefore will not cut anyhting.

Nice pliers
August 21, 2015
These pliers are essential if you plan on using split rings to affix new hooks to your plugs. The finish is excellent and they feel decent on hand. I wish they were slightly larger to handle beefy split rings, but these types of rings can be opened using the grooves in the center of the jaws as opposed to the top. But their size is perfect for use on the water and won't add weight to your belt. Key of modifying hook size/setup is important, like when targeting big game species. The line cutter feature is nice as well.
ProsGreat pliers for the price. Nice construction and finish.
ConsCould be slightly larger. I would not depend on these to remove a hook embedded in your hand though, the cutting edge is not strong enough, but that's not what these are designed for. Always have a tough pair of cutters on hand for this type of emergency.

By Derek
New Cumberland, PA
Not perfect but quite good.
February 26, 2015
Prior to getting these pliers I used my SOG Powerlock multi-tool which wasn't always ideal but it is my base of reference. The biggest advantage I have found with these are the cutters located outside of the jaw which makes them much more accessible in almost every situation. Having a totally non-corrosive set of pliers is fantastic as well. The replaceable jaws and cutters are a welcome touch and add to the longevity of these pliers as well. They also weigh much less a multi-tool or cheap set of needle nose pliers which is nice. The biggest issues I have found with these are: 1) They can be slightly slippery and not always easy to grip; thankfully a lanyard keeps them from ending up in the water and 2) even when fully closed there remains a slight gap between the teeth of the jaws; they never actually lock together. This can make getting a secure grip on some hooks, especially smaller ones, a bit more challenging than perhaps it ought to be. At the sale price, or better yet the TackleDirect variant price, these pliers deliver well enough to be a value. At a higher price I'm not sure they offer as much as they should.
Pros-Affordable -Replaceable jaws -Replaceable cutters -Light weight
Cons-Slight gap between jaws -Not always the easiest to get a grip on.

Decided to move up from the hardware store pliers and get a set of fishing pliers. I have been using these all fall and they have worked great. Everything from pulling hooks, to cutting 20lb braided line.

Why pay more when this is everything you need!
November 26, 2014
Completed my first season with the pliers and they got the job done! From in the field repairs, to unhooking deeply imbedded treble hooks (that allowed for safe release) this product did not let me down. The P-Line Adaro proved to me that you can get a very high quality tool at an affordable price.
Prosprice quality performance in the field

does the Job but you might want to invest in a longer lasting pair.
November 4, 2014
they will pull hooks out, hold and cut line.
Prosrelatively strong jaws, cutters are easily replaceable which is a definite plus. I believe the jaws are replaceable too.
Consthe thread on the screws that hold the cutters are not strong. you can and will strip them if you attempt too much torque while tightening them. the cutters do not last long. rust will be a problem if your a saltwater angler. should be kept in a lubricating sleeve for protection. sheath is garbage. if your a serious angler and are on the water a lot during the year it might be better to invest in a serious pair.

Gets the job done
October 10, 2014
But I'm not sure for how long, as mine are beginning to off-center. Always great to have a pair around, I had lost a pair and quickly ordered these for the next outing and thank god I did. A lot of bluefish that day and there were some hairy times that if I didn't have these my hand for sure would have been in its mouth or hooked.

Not the best for the surf fisherman
December 27, 2013
I've had these pliers for a couple of seasons now and don't really use them that much anymore. Very hard to grip without gloves. I prefer pliers with grips. I've broken two sets of cutters and at $15 a set, I use them as backups when someone fishes with me. I've found 2 or 3 other pliers I like much more.
ConsNo grips on handle. Substandard cutters.

Got these pliers because the price was great. The pliers worked great. The sheath, not so much. I would have preferred a clip on as well as the belt loop and . My biggest complaint with these pliers is that the rusted very badly between seasons and it made them unusable the second season. Worked great ... but for only one season.

Value for money - works great!
September 27, 2012
High quality look and feel - more like the expensive pair of pliers. Value for money - but made in China. Lightweight. Cuts braid easy. Coiled, nylon lanyard and a cordura pouch included. The spring loaded jaw help me to hold the pliers open for easy of use. I just bought this split ring pliers. The pliers works almost perfect - even in my big hands. However, it might slip in your hand because of the polished finish - so be careful and use the lanyard included. The front tip for the split ring is functional, but a little too big for the smallest split rings. - but it works.

I bought these in anticipation of giving them a good workout on an albacore trip. Unfortunately, the fish didn't cooperate very much this time. I did ascertain that the pliers are well made and do what they're supposed to do; cut line and remove hooks. The price is a steal, the quality is great. You won't be sorry picking up a pair.

ConsI wish there was a locking mechanism to lock them closed; this is not a deal killer though.

August 13, 2012
I read reviews of the P-line Adaro pliers, and found that these pliers had some problems in the past. Obviously they have been fixed, because I love these pliers now. The blue pliers not only look great but are very functional. They cut ALL kinds of line well. The reason I gave it 3 stars was because the handles are pretty slick, but that's easily fixed with some surgical tubing. The 2nd reason was because the replacement jaws and cutters are not actually available. I've looked all over this site and many other reputable tackle sites. The replacement parts simply aren't available. Hopefully Tackle Direct will stock BOTH these parts, because I really do enjoy using these pliers.
ProsLightweight Tight tolerances in handles Jaws touch at very tip Great anodizing Sturdy shock cord and sheath
ConsSlick handles Replacement parts are not available, despite what descriptions say (not only for Tackle Direct, but all other tackle sites) Jaws close with very, very slight dis-alignment
