- 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.

- Disappointed Review by Zulu
OverallLeaving in France, I have purchased the nipper from UK distributor for $45. Being Simms "addict", i was convinced that the nipper had the same high performance features that the Simms products I use with great satisfaction (G3 wading boots, guide vest, wading staff, G4 cap and more recently G4 pro jacket). Unfortunately, this nipper does not do its basic job: cutting in once mono to 45/100 from 25/100 and certainly not the knot at the eye of the hook!
I have noticed that the jaws move from L to R and are not sharped enough.
So far, i do not plan to replace blades spares because i am not sure if this issue is fixed out.

- Dull after 3 days Review by JM
OverallUsed the nippers on 10# flouro for 3 days bonefishing. Completely dull. Would not even cut 40# flouro. Ordered replacement blades, used them last week and same thing. Emailed Simms about the problem after the first use and no reply after a month. Wish I would have bought the Abels, buddy has them and they have remained sharp after 5 salt and multiple trout trips. I have always been impressed with Simms quality. These nippers do not live up to the brand.
