Gamakatsu USA Offers A New Angle On Pliers

Tacoma, Washington – New for 2022, Gamakatsu® introduces 9-inch pliers to its lineup. Similar to the popular 6- and 7-inch pliers, the 9-inch pliers have an added 45-degree angle to provide a comfortable position for various tasks. Say goodbye to awkward angles and hello to an ergonomic, reliable tool.

Like all the pliers Gamakatsu offers, these pliers are stainless steel with a PTFE coating to aid against corrosion and rust. This protective plastic is sprayed on and baked to create a nonstick, waterproof, non-corrosive and non-reactive surface. The handles also feature a non-slip grip that helps anglers hold on during wet conditions.

The Gamakatsu pliers have precise crimping jaws to fit various sizes of sleeves. When big-game fishing, anglers will appreciate the crimps for hard-to-work-with heavy mono. Anglers will also enjoy the precision split ring feature on the needle nose tool. This feature will cut down the time anglers spend changing or replacing split rings. These pliers also feature a multi-tasking jaw that utilizes an outside cutter to cut braid, mono, or fluorocarbon.

Included with the pliers are a lanyard and a black nylon sheath, so the pliers are right where they are needed. Gamakatsu’s heavy-duty pliers will become the favorite tool for avid salt or freshwater anglers!
