I was pondering buying a pair of accurate pliers as I don't like using my shimano baysteels for cutting and tightening knots. I was wondering how everyone liked them and what size they have. There are 8", 7", and 6" pliers now. A little feedback would really be appreciated. I couldn't find much about them in the past.....Thanks fellas!

The Accurates are great! Get the size that fits your hand the most comfortably. I've got big hands so the 8's are my choice

I got the 7" and love them. You can even get some split ring jaws for them. I've never had any problems with them and after 2 years I'm still using the same cutter granted that I don't cut much steel wire.

i got the 7 inch pliers. i love them. the cutters work fantastic on even the lightest braids. i put the split ring jaws on them and works great for large split rings. what i like about it is that you can use them for split rings, tightening knots, and removing hooks. makes for a very versatile plier

bret- i have the browning pliers. i dont like them. the cutter is ok but the titanium finish does rust. and the jaws dont grip that well

The brownings are on sale at BPS often for $29.99. Hard to beat that, although they are too heavy. Anybody use the BPS XPS aluminum pliers?

I have the small ones Accurate 6" - my hands are not that small but I like the little ones as they don't weight much of anything, I can put them in shirt pocket if needed.

The HPA pliers are an interesting twist with a very powerful set of split ring jaws.
