    Nippers

    They are little smaller than what I was expecting, but the perform and function exactly as you'd hope. Better than cutting line with your teeth by orders of magnitude!

    Works great! But somewhat small

    Familiarity:
    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    It was slightly smaller than I was expecting, but I did buy the cheapest one with this style of grip. They work great though, the grip will be helpful in the colder months and when hands are wet. If I could go back I would probably buy the big nippas from this same brand, but these will work fine and I don't want to go through the trouble of returning. Those with older hands or hand problems will definitely want the bigger "big nippas" but these will work fine for many young people like me.

    Nippas!

    Rising makes excellent products and the Nippas are certainly no exception. Hard to really improve on nippers seeing as they are about the most basic thing out. Risings addition of the rubber grip is amazing, why no one ever thought of it before is beyond me. The rubber allows you to easily handle the tool without fumbling around a slipping while your hands are wet. The bright red color helps you easily locate them if you drop them in the weeds too.

    Solid Pair, Solid Price

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I have gone through like literally a dozen pairs of nippers since working in the fishing industry, they have broken off zingers, fallen off my waders, misplaced on the river bank, etc. I stumbled upon the rising nippas when I was working in Montana years ago and literally though they were perfect for the price. I have had like 12$ nippers the same size as this little guy that go dull in no time at all. These puppies cut and cut well. Not to mention, they come with a small grip cover over the nippers which really help in getting those fine cuts on 6 and 7x tippets. I lost that faithful pair of nippers once I left Montana but now I have found them again!

    Tiny... But Mighty!

    I've put it through the wringer

    After fumbling around and replacing several more generic nippers since getting into fly fishing about 6 years ago, I found these lil guys and they are still cutting tippet like a boss 4 years later. The little hook eye clearer at the base has saved the day on sever less than proper tied flies that were blocked and I have since retired an older pair to be a dedicated staple of my tying bench for nipping wire. Get several pairs as you will want these lil guys on all your packs, waders, and jacket. For more serious nipping needs, check out Rising's 'Big Nippa'!

    I love the small size and rubber grip. I do not love finding a sweet spot for trimming my 7x tippet. These are 6 dollar nippers though so you can make it work if you’re baggin’ it

    Used many times

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    Overall, I feel that these aren't worth the money. Have used other ones at this price point that work much better. I have a hard time cutting any tipper higher than 3x. I feel that you have to cut straight on with the tipper or leader to get a clean up. Shouldn't have to fuss that much!

    Yes!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    Buying nippers is notoriously difficult. You can go cheap and risk getting nippers that cut like a spoon. Or you can go high end (Abel/Hatch) and spend $50+ on nippers that you know will cut...but then you just spend $50+ on nippers. OR, you can go middle of the road, which seems to yield extremely inconsistent results. I decided to go the cheap route with these Rising Nippas, and I struck gold. They actually cut! They're not going to match up to some high strength, tungsten carbide cutters, but they get the job done with 6x, and if you lose them...who cares? Definitely give them a shot!

    I keep these out and ready, probably one of the most used items i have. Makes very clean cuts and point on the end works well for cleaning out pole eyelets.

    The Nippas didn't cut very well, and I was better off just using a nail clipper.

    I have a few pairs of Rising's Nippas, both big and small. I love them and use them almost exclusively.
