As far as fishing gear goes, pliers arent new to the scene. The tool itself isnt ground-breaking and it wouldnt be a stretch to think that fishing pliers had peaked. Gerber looked at the tool with fresh eyes and realized that the greatest opportunity lied in the ergonomics – power and control could be optimized with simple adjustments to the design of the fishing pliers.
With Bearhand ControlTM, the Magniplier positively engages with your hand for a solid, confident grip. Bearhand ControlTM is an ergonomic control system comprised of three design elements that translate the power of the hand into power you can utilize in the tool. First, the space between the handles is purposeful – it is optimized to engage where the hand is strongest for maximum force. Second, an oversized finger choil is integrated as another place to rest the forefinger providing added stability. Last, the nose of pliers is off axis for improved line of sight and control when removing the hook from a fishs mouth.
The pliers are a hot-forged aluminium construction, allowing the metal to be manipulated into the ergonomic design as well as give the pliers unrivalled strength. The spring-loaded pliers lessen hand fatigue and are held in check by a plunge lock – meaning the tool wont open unexpectedly when youre on the move or catching fish. The nylon sheath includes a belt loop, d-ring, and coiled plier lanyard and can be tethered from multiple points.
It doesnt matter if you are hiking in, wading in a river, or bobbing in a kayak, the Magniplier is built for the adventure. If youre looking for innovative fly-fishing pliers, kayak fishing pliers, or bass fishing pliers, look no further. The Magniplier is the only set youll need.
