Old Florida Titanium pliers...

Rate this topic

I just bought a pair and they look sweet. They are a pretty good copy of the others (VS, Donmar) and have replaceable jaws (a big plus for me). They are also less than half the price of those!wink.gif

 

Anyone own them? Good/bad feedback?

The pliers are a carbon copy of the VS's and they are $99. The cutter is on the jaws and comes of when you replace them. It cuts 100 pound mono like butter and braid fairly well. Here is a pic.....

Sorry, I might be a little groggy here but here goes....

 

Breezy....I got them from Finest Kind.

 

Mike....I don't think you can cut a 5/0 many times but I'm assuming that you are talking about cutting one in a pinch....they can do that.wink.gif

Feltman, you are right....their website says aluminum:

 

 

Machined from solid bar aircraft aluminum and designed to coexist in the harsh saltwater environment. Pliers feature replaceable surgical stainless steel jaws hardened to 60 Rc and are deeply serrated for maximum grip. Cutting edge will cut wire or the finest mono. Hooks machined into the handles aid in knot tying while the tips have no serrations for flattening barbs. Hard anodized in Metallic Blue or Black with stainless steel machined pivot. 6" or 8", sheath included. Lifetime warrantly.

 

Their catalog says Titanium. I think they are aluminum. I used them last night and they performed really well!wink.gif
