- Poorly made Review by John in Cle
OverallWell what can I say that others haven't already said. I purchased these last fall and they are already broken. They are dull to say the least out of the box. I went on a two day trip to PA this past weekend, went to use them, and the bottom blade or whatever it is was gone. Completely gone. I resorted to using my knife until I could hit an outfitters where I purchased a 5 dollar pair of nippers. They were already sharper than the simms out of the box. I thought about purchasing a replacement part, but I don't feel I can rely on them at all, so why bother. Anyways, I hope they can fix the design of these and make them better. I do own other simms products and they are great! Maybe I'll try them again in the future who knows.

- They stick shut in cool weather Review by Brent
OverallI was really excited to get the nippers for Christmas form one of my sons. Unfortunately they were sticky in operation from the beginning. Thought perhaps they would loosen up with time and use. Nope. They look good, but I think it is time to give them up as a lost cause. Hope that Simms gets this right someday.
Love my zippered waders and boa boots.

- Very disappointing Review by Jeff Thorp
OverallI thought that the Simms nippers would be of similar quality to the Abel nippers. Unfortunately these are not as well constructed and the blades don't cut well. I'd suggest Abel nippers or Sports Tools nippers.

- Not worth the price Review by Riverfool
OverallThese are surprisingly inefficient. They do not cut well and after only a few months, the screws loosened up, one lost to the river and no way to replace just one screw. Impossible to find a replacement screw which fits and Simms does not sell them. The only remedy is to buy another nipper, which is not going to happen. This is the first product from Simms I have ever been disappointed with. I have owned their waders and bags for years.
[Response from Simms Customer Care Team] - Thank you for hte feedback Riverfool. We do sell replacement blades online. Contact the repair center at 888-585-3570 and we will see what we can do

- Work Great! Review by Steamboat David
OverallWell folks it's year 2 and these things rock! In typical Simms fashion, they have fixed these babies and they work great...lots of use too! They are light and cut all size line easily...and they are sooo easy to use! I like em'!!

- Why do they only have one cutting jaw! Review by brentpr
OverallThe build quality of these nippers are good the only problem is they have only one cutting jaw and one flat jaw. If both jaws were to cut they would be a lot better. Just my two cents, I own a aerospace machining company I recommend both jaws be made out solid carbide with cutting edges!

- Blades are dull Review by Logan
OverallI fish with up to 3X trout tippet and 12 lb. steelhead tippet. These nippers can get the job done, but it usually takes a few attempts. The blades are surprisingly dull and inefficient. I struggled with these for a few months before replacing them with significantly cheaper nippers that do a much better job. These nippers are difficult to use in general and almost impossible for me to use in cold weather.
Huge fan of Simms products across the board, but this is a surprising miss.

- Jaws stay shut too easily Review by Robin
OverallI was pretty excited to receive what were extremely nice nippers when I tried them at the product showcase, but unfortunately they constantly stick shut and need to be fiddled with to fully open again. I've tried mineral oil which seemed to work for a bit but they started seizing again...will try other lubricants.
They cut well so they're like halfway there?

- Disappointed Review by Fishnbugdude
OverallMy first day out I was a little disappointed with how they cut thinner mono - 8 lb that is - closer to the eye. During the tarpon it worked well on the thicker stuff. Problem was one of the blades fell off before the day was done. Unfortunately I was in Cuba and had no way of getting a new blade or nippers. Fortunately my partner had an extra pair of cheap ones that got me through. I was expecting more from a Simms product. I have contacted customer service - hopefully I can update this with good news.
