I spent some time trying to put together a heavy duty set of plyers and belt pouch case that would stand up to monster off shore tuna, halibut, white seabass, wahoo, bottom, jig fishing. I tried some of the needle nose aluminum braid cutters, but they didn't seem up to the task unless they were over $100. TIGHT LINES ALL... This is what I came up with recommended on my budget: DeWalt Heavy-Duty Tool Holder DG5173 (belt pouch/case), I removed its Steel measuring tape clip ($21) DeWalt long nose pliers DWHT70277 ($11) These require oil as they will rust, but should last a couple seasons with some care. Boomerang Original SNIP spectra braid Fishing Line Cutter ($13). Bianchi Key Holder Lightweight Dual Snap Closure Belt Keeper (this attaches to the yellow accessory loop and holds my towel via a 3-1/4" Stainless Steel Safety Pin. I added a Stainless Steel S-Ring Carabiner Locking Snap Clip to a small loop to attach a Stainless Steel Wire Coiled Lanyard Safety Rope to the pliers. Note: I had to drill a small hole in the plier's handle to fit a Stainless Steel Wire Keychain Cable Screw Clasp Key Ring 10cm 4" on the rig.
