Excellent Micro Forceps -

I needed a small pair of forceps to complete a light weight kit for fly and spin fishing. These fit the bill and have proven to be well-designed and reliable throughout a year of use on Virginia’s small streams and traveling to large New England lakes. The design incorporates a forceps and scissors for maximum utility. They work well removing and de-barbing hooks, and cutting most all fly and spin fishing lines, leaders and tippets. Recommended for those needing a small, high quality, versatile fishing tool.

Excellent! Small, compact, but enough to complete the task.

These are an excellently engineered piece of equipment, they fulfill more than one function they are a pair of powerful clamps, very effective cutting scissors and debarbing tool. Beautiful quality to Orvis high standards.

Had another set of Micro Forceps but loss them in the Driftless area so I had to get another pair. Use them all the time.
Great for what they are! -
I owned the Micro-Scissors forceps previously and ended up losing them out of my chest pack. Thought I'd be fine with my nippers and a pair of Power-Jaw forceps. But I ended up really missing the tiny Micro-Scissors. So I purchased a replacement. They are very small, and seem to require a little more force to open and close than a "standard size" forceps. A little "twist" in your grip aides in both the opening and closing, and they do operate smotthly with no binding. This extra effort doesn't bother me in the least, and once you get the hang of them, they are just as handy as any others. Their tiny size makes them perfect for a minimalist outing, or where size and weight are important considerations. (Backpacking for example) They eliminate the need to carry nippers as well, but since they don't have an eye cleaning tool incorporated into them, you'll need to use a fly to clear any hook eye. The clamp portion provides plenty of grip, and the scissors portion with its serrated edge works great on everything from tippet to trimming flies. A small fly box, the Micro/Scissor Forceps, Gink, and a couple of spools of tippet are all I carry (or need) when fishing for a day. I love these little guys and you probably will to if you understand what it is your getting. They are tiny. If you have big hands and/or fat fingers you'll likely be disappointed. The same holds true if you lack sufficient finger strength to operate them efficiently. Highly recommended for those of you looking for the ultimate in tiny forceps.
Need an Iron Grip to Use These Forceps -
I have ordered these forceps twice and 'struck out' both times. The forceps stick, they require two hands to open or close so I find them non-functional for me, a female fly fisher. Perhaps if I could have tried them out in the store, I could have found a pair that worked to my comfort.. For me, this product is not up to Orvis standards or of any use to females who don't wish to fight with trying to open or close them. Would not recommend. Will give ONE STAR - .

I have smaller hands than the average fishermen so these hit the spot. Small enough to hang off any vest and not get in the way. When mashing down the barbs they do 'lock' (which they are supposed to do). But, I figure all positive locking forceps will do that. The added cutter works great and seems to never go dull. Would appreciate these in a black.
