What are the best fishing pliers for under a 100 bucks?

Danco. $20. Better than Van Staal. I've used them all.

I have been happy with the bubba blade pliers for several months (sponsored by bubba blade)
The accurate pliers are not good pliers
Van Staals are totally awesome, but cost.
If you properly care for Manly pliers they are awesome too

I like the Danco's 7.5 inch, pointed nose with the side cutters, lost them and picked up a pair of Mustads with same specs cutters, preferred the feel of the danco's. Both priced under $30's. Mustards feel sturdier, but weigh more.

I'd by another pair of Danco's next time.

Bubba pliers are real nice for the money. Dancos are quite crappy

Whatever the cheaper ones are at WalMart. They all sink at exactly the same rate.

My favorite pliers are on the bottom of the Ashley River.....fishing buddy slung them off with the dip net. I like an aluminum plier with the cutting bits in the fork of the pliers, not on the outside knuckle.

There's a THT sponsor that sells some good pliers for a good price.

I have had multiple pairs of P Lines and they have been great at least until I lose them.

I have Donmar. Mine will be needing new cutters. Donmar said send them in and don't worry about it. That's service.
