Fishing pliers are a must-have piece of gear. Pliers aren’t only for removing hooks but can cut lines, help with split rings, and much more. One of my favorite pairs of fishing pliers is the Booms Fishing X1 Aluminum Fishing Pliers because of their well-balanced weight, versatility, and features.

When I first pulled these out of the box, I loved the color first and foremost. I attached the sheath to the pliers via the included braided metal coiled lanyard and stored them on the side of my tackle box. The next day, I headed to Braunig Lake to fish with my dad. We used these pliers to remove hooks from fish so we could finish preparing them for dinner, build rigs, and cut lines when loading our reels.

Features on features

My favorite element of this tool is the excellent weight distribution. Neither end is too heavy and allows for excellent dexterity along the 7.8in tool. The contoured finger inlays allow for additional grip, especially when working with large fish or tough jobs. The handle end is all aluminum and the business end is stainless steel, creating a balance of weight and durability where it’s needed. Weighing in at a mere .3lbs, they are nimble and lightweight. The aluminum is also rust-resistant, making these acceptable for both fresh and saltwater use.

On the nose of these pliers is a split ring tool, increasing the versatility. Also, on the business end of the Booms there is a crimp sleeve and a crimp split lead, and lastly, line cutters. The line cutters are capable of cutting braided lines, monofilament lines, and fluorocarbon lines.
