I bought this about a year ago and have used it multiple times. Mostly to help land stripers and hybrids. I fish from a kayak usually and these fish grippers help to control the fish while removing hooks. I just ordered the smaller version for a Christmas present to myself. Will review them before the end of the year.
At first i was a little hesitant to purchase because of the price and it was all plastic. I thought it was not going to be reliable. Well I was wrong. I take it with me every time i go fishing. It clamps down very good and have not lost a fish yet. Nice and light weight.Perfect!!!!!
