The re-introduction of the Hatch Tempest plier gives anglers chasing the largest and "toothiest fish an upper hand in when cuttng big leader materials and removing hooks.
The Tempest 2 Plier has tungsten carbide cutters in a side postion, making cutting the largest wire and tippets a piece of cake. Hatch added gripping grooves to the jaw tips to easily grasp knot tag ends for a solid seating of every knot. The I-Beam arms of the Tempest 2 Plier are fabricated from 6061-TC aluminum and protected with type II anodize. The team at Hatch added a misted finish for 2019 to give the pliers extra texture for better grip so the pliers don't slip out of wet hands. The Hatch Outdoors Tempest 2 Plier is 8" in length and weighs about 5.2oz. Available colors are Black, Blue, Red and Clear. Each plier comes with a custom Hatch Bungee Lanyard and a black leather sheath.
