These new 7" fishing pliers ($229) are manufactured from titanium for strength, durability and corrosion resistance, and incorporate bronze bearings for smooth action and long-term use. Like the company's 6" pliers, the new model features the same ergonomic design for comfort, a hinge-design to eliminate twist, spring-loaded handles and replaceable cutters.
