Gamakatsu® USA 9-inch Tongs Now Available

New for 2022, Gamakatsu® introduces 9-inch pliers to its line. Like the popular 6-inch and 7-inch pliers, the 9-inch pliers have an additional 45-degree angle to provide a comfortable position for a variety of tasks. Say goodbye to awkward angles and hello to an ergonomic and reliable tool.

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

Gamakatsu pliers have precise crimping jaws to fit various sizes of sleeves. When it comes to sport fishing, anglers will appreciate the hard-to-work heavy monkey reefs. Anglers will also enjoy the precision split ring feature on the needle nose tool. This feature will reduce the time anglers spend changing or replacing split rings. These pliers also feature a multi-task jaw that uses an external cutter to cut strand, mono, or fluorocarbon.

A lanyard and black nylon sheath are included with the pliers, so the pliers are right where you need them. Gamakatsu Heavy Duty Pliers are sure to become a favorite tool for avid freshwater or saltwater anglers!
