THIS FOR $29 Review by HMGFOO
I'm confuse, this is the first Nippers I bought that has the upper jaw sharpen but the bottom jaw has no cutting edge whatsoever. Is this a design flaw or what? I'm very disappointed, this nipper is useless with its cutting edge. My 99 cent toe nail nipper does a way better job.

Don't open well in cool weather Review by Alaska
Must strengthen the spring to open the clippers. Worthless in cooler weather. Poor quality for Simms to accept this kind of performance. I'm sorry I bought two.

Blades aren't that great Review by Jay
The machining of the body is great, although i do notice a little side to side play like others have mentioned. The blades though are not very good at all. Mine appeared to be dull from the start, and after a couple of weeks of use, they have trouble cutting most mono and fluoro now. I don't really want to buy replacement blades this soon, and no one in my area seems to have them. Since I'm in Ontario, I can not order them from Simms either. Sort of dissapointed.

Garbage Review by Dgino
Simms gear costs a pretty penny because it is the best. I trust Simms and only Simms when it comes to staying warm and dry on the water. I thought the cost of these nippers would be justified because it has the Simms name on it, as they surely wouldn't put it on an inferior product. I could not have been more wrong. These things won't cut through anything easily. Forget cutting a knot at the eye of a hook if you are using anything over 20lb. It's a struggle at 12lbs. Save yourself $29 and buy some nail clippers from the drug store for a $1. Back to the drawing board on nippers Simms

Not a bad set --if only the screw didn't fall out Review by Brownie
Who knows where that little booger is - the screw backed out and is probably somewhere on the bottom of the Soho river. A little factory loctite may be the ticket. Eh? 3 stars for incovenience...will be sending in for repair.

Good all around Review by minard
Mine work well and seem to cut everything from 30lb mono to 6x without any issues. I've noticed a bit of a hiccup in the spring once or twice if the zinger attachment gets jostled the wrong way, but it bounces back when I press it down. I like the bigger blade size.

Not bad. Review by Cardo
Yeah, I had the $50 Abel nippers. They weren't perfect either. They got dull pretty fast. Then I lost them and decided to try the Simms. At the lower price I figured there'd be some shortcomings. But, all in all these are performing just as good as the Abels. I have no lateral L to R movement like others have mentioned. I did notice that sometimes the jaws kind of stay shut a little but it eventually springs open. Love where the eye cleaner is located—didn't like where it was on the Abels.

Almost Great Review by Mike65
Overall they work. The hinge is a little loose on mine, I noticed the jaws don't line up, they move left to right... it cuts just fine just a little sloppy in the fit...

[Response from Simms Customer Care Team]

Disappointed. Review by Inishmac
Just took delivery of 4 no. nippers after a wait of 8 weeks or so, bought from TCO fly fishing and delivered to my home in Ireland - I have to say that I'm disappointed with the quality of them. I think that they should be a work in progress and not on the market yet. They have two major faults, lateral movement of the jaws (hinge too loose) and blades that don't line up and are not sharp enough, they don't make a clean cut. These problems have to be sorted out if Simms want to compete with Abel for good quality nippers. I had intended to give two of the nippers to two of my fishing buddies as a gift. I don't associate Simms with this sort of inferior quality.
