Crimp it Right


These new crimpers from Sea Striker feature a set of powerful jaws that easily swage double and oval leader sleeves. Crimpers and pliers are traditionally manufactured with a pin in the center; however, the HD-800 Billfisher Power Crimper is assembled with a metal bar across the jaws, eliminating the power-robbing center pin. This design ensures the easy crimping of sleeves up to 2.3 mm (for 400/450 lb. test mono). The tool comes with cushioned grips and a $40 retail price. Sea Striker, Morehead City, NC; (252) 247-4113.
