Many split ring pliers are toys. You get what you pay for. This pair is professional grade. I fish many days a year and have had many pairs of cheap slit ring pliers. I finally bit the bullet and paid for a good set. So glad I did. The Xuron 496 pliers can open even the smallest rings without damage. The sharp nose fits easily in any size split ring and the extended lower jaw holds the ring nicely while you roll it on or off the lure. I'm buying more to use as Christmas gifts for my sons and fishing budd..
This tool was recommended by "Good Old Boat" as a tool to help with fastening split rings into clevis pins as well as for removing cotter pins out of standing rigging. I can speak from experience that this tool will certainly eliminate broken fingernails and dropped split rings into the drink. Highly recommended.
