Typhoon-tången gör processen kort i att bita av monofil, flourocarbon och moderna flätlinor!
Dr. Slick's new Typhoon pliers are made of 6061-T6 aircraft quality anodized, salt-water resistant aluminum that is fully machined, not die cast. Also featured are non-slip rubber grips and a self-opening spring. The Typhoon's cutters are HR (Rockwell Hardness) 70+, which Dr. Slick describes as "lethal on all monofilament, new age braid and synthetic lines plus coated wire up to 60-pound." The pliers' jaws offer a half smooth and half striated design.
The most interesting thing about the new Typhoon pliers may be their price point, which could draw the interest of fishermen that have been in the market for a pair of premium pliers but have been unwilling to cough up several hundred dollars for some of the Typhoon's competing models. At $60 MSRP, anglers which have been toting along heavy, rusty needle nose pliers that are quickly disposed of after saltwater does its work may look to Dr. Slick's new premium, saltwater-safe solution.
