A lot of kayak anglers are also avid DIY enthusiasts and there's no shortage of YouTube videos on how to do just about anything yourself. One of the brands that are taking advantage of this trend is Daiwa who has just introduced their new Split-Ring Plier series.
Hook replacement is just one of the things that come with the territory if you spend a lot of time on the water. When they are not getting bent out of shape they either rust or become dull. This is where the Split-Ring Plier series comes in handy. These tools are available in 5- and 8-inch lengths with a heat-treated carbon steel design. This process of pre-treating steel with heat is commonly used in milling processes and professional cutting tools in order to make the material harder and stronger. In terms of the Split-Ring Plier series, it translates into a piece of gear that can aggressively open split-rings and last.
 
Those who are familiar with the Rockwell Scale of Hardness will know what we are talking about when we say the actual steel is measured "C" on the scale. For those unfamiliar with the scale, it basically means that it is extremely hard steel. The pliers are also double tempered, so by treating the steel with heat that is just above the melting point Daiwai was able to increase the toughness of the iron-base and improve shear strength while also enhancing the compressive strength. To further battle corrosion the Split-Ring Pliers were then given a nickel finish by Daiwa.
 
Daiwa has designed the 5- and 8-inch Split-Ring Pliers with gray and black rubber handles that feature their striking logo. In addition, the 5-inch model is also spring-loaded. Buyers can expect to pay $14.99 for the 8-inch Split-Ring Pliers and $12.99 for the 5-inch version. Daiwa also has a whole range of other useful products available, so be sure to check out their official website for more information (https://www.daiwa.com/us/).
 
Daiwa has been a well-known name in fishing circles ever since releasing their first spinning reel way back in 1955. Since then they have grown in leaps and bounds to become one of the largest and most influential tackle companies in the world.
