    Good Nippers - 9/3/2014

    Nippers work great; just the right size, and the barb to clear hook eyes is a great feature. Very pleased!

    Solid and simple - 8/15/2014

    These snippers are good quality basic nippers. They include a sharp point for clearing the eyes of hooks. There is nothing special or flashy about them--they are just made to work well.

    I'm just getting into Fly Fishing, and this is the first snip I've ever purchased. It's light, seems durable, and is priced right! That makes it a winner in my book.

    Snip is good but there is room for improvement - 5/17/2014

    I use the snip only, the zinger that comes with it is bad (no wonder for the total price). I prefer the ORVIS Super Zinger Made in U.S.A. I would like to see a snip offered by ORVIS that once was made in America and offered by HOUSE of HARDY (now HARDY offers a cheap asian made copy for the old price of the original well-made one). It was a snip and nail knot tool in one. Not cheap but very versatile. Maybe ORVIS can find the American made original and offer it, of course with an ORVIS imprint on it. BTW this ORVIS snipping tool itself is well made and reliable. Have several of them in use since years.

    Best Snips - 5/6/2014

    I lost my old Orvis Snip on the river last month, and I have had and used it for at least 20 years about. It is small, light weight, uncomplicated, effective and can be sharpened repeatedly.

    easy to use and not easy to loose - 4/8/2014
    By: from syracuse, ny

    These are simple to use and always hanging close at hand. I coupled this with the flip focal and wow what a difference it makes when changing flies. Much easier now.
