Ahh, they didn't last long. Review by Whitty

Whitty 11/20/2015

I was using these during spanish mackerel season, so 30-40lbs shock/bite tippet. Maybe a day or two and noticeably dull. Too bad. Time for some $$$ Abels

Worthless Review by NCJ in CT

NCJ in CT 9/16/2015

Absolutely the dullest nippers I have ever encountered. Like a fool I thought I had just purchased a defective pair and ordered a replacement set of blades from an online shop. Just a bad. I'm stunned Simms would sell these.

Lost screws makes them useless Review by TroutSister

TroutSister 8/15/2015

They worked well the few times I used them. But then went to use them on the water one day and the one blade was just hanging there with one screw missing and the other half-way backed out. Had to keep borrowing my fishing buddy's cheap $5 cutter until I could get back home and dug out another $5 cutter that remains on my vest now. Love my other Simms products and the warranty service that backs them up. Should at least be able to order screws to keep this tool operational.

Not worth the money Review by ridesintherain

ridesintherain 8/14/2015

Above reviews accurate. They are built well but not sharp. You can cut stuff with it but a $10 cheaper pair will outperform them with regards to ease of cutting line and cutting larger line. Gotta say this is the only Simms product thus far I have purchased that has been less than optimal. Most of their gear sets the performance standard. These nips will underperform your cheap ones but do look nice.

Poorly made Review by John in Cle

John in Cle 8/10/2015

Well 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

Brent 7/20/2015

I 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

Jeff Thorp 7/7/2015

I 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

Riverfool 6/9/2015

These 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
