SEI
NEW X-Wrench
Multi-Function Tool - No Tackle Box Should Be Without This One!

Best Tool of it's type ever produced, it really is a must have item guys. Here's the deal, the owner of SEI is a dedicated long range fisherman, with some machining background, has an overseas factory working with him in his primary business, and is always looking for things to make his trips on the water better. He's a tinkerer. First product he came up with was the SEI bracket, a trigger grip version of the Cork Puppy. That's a nice product, this one's even better, and there are a couple other new ones in the final stages of manufacture we'll be showing off very soon. Back to the tool...

Going fishing means, getting your gear organized, tackle, rods, reels, etc. And, of course you've got to put your reels on the rods, and after the trip is over take the gear down again. On the LR boats we do this on the last day usually, and with 6-8 rigs to take apart and clean up there's some time involved. Having the right tool for a job is key in any work we do, and in the case of the X-Wrench you've got the right tool right in the palm of your hand - all the tools, all sizes, all the sockets you'll need plus screwdriver bits and the darn elevator type key that you need for Avet and a few other reels too. This tool has 'em all, plus a socket adaptor, bottle opener twist and cap popper, magnetic receiver for standard bits.... Darn thing is very well thought out.

#1 and #2 Phillips Drivers
#1 and #2 Barrel Nut Adapter
3/8" and 1/4" Common Driver
1/4" Standard Bit Adaptor
Sockets for loosening and tightening your reel clamp's nuts: 13mm & 1/2", 3/8", 7/16" & 10mm

The thing has all the tools you'll probably need, other than a crimper and pair of pliers or dikes (diagonal cutter). The tool is not cheap, but when you consider all it accomplishes, the time it can save you over the years, it's a stinking bargain in my estimation. I took one along with my on our RRIII 8 day charter this season, really impressed me with how well thought out it was, how well everything fit together. Only thing I wish I had was a small box or pouch for storage...working on that one. $29.99, and worth every penny in my estimation.

Custom Wrapped Deckhand Plier Sets

Another excellent set of tools for anglers. Go on a boat and check the tools used by the deckhands, might be something similar hanging from their belt...but chances are not quite as nice.  These quality drop forged tools, needle nose and dikes, offer very good quality, and then they are customized by a fellow angler who does some very nice cordwork. With the "wraps" and unique knots, and some sealant to ensure they stay secure long term, these tools are confidence inspiring - and they do look darn good, too.

The tools will come in a bag of sorts, not a sheath. (The tool bag they come in really resembles a lure wrap - so it may come in handy to you, but really isn't anything you'll use for these tools...). The tools are not stainless steel, but they will last a lifetime with appropriate maintenance, oil will keep 'em functional. The wraps are guaranteed to hold up by the man who produces the pliers. We do have deckhand sheaths available at our shop which can be added to your order. In all honesty, pliers this good should have a nice leather sheath..and we're working on that one, but cost will be heafty. The nylon dual sheath offered below is functional, not as nice as we'd like, but plenty good...just prefer leather and we'll try to get that accomplished.

Toro Tamer Drag Scales

While we refer to 'em as Drag Scales, others simply know 'em as a scale. Like other spring scales of this type, we make use of a tell-tale so you know how high the weight was when there's no more pressure on the scale - the marker stays at the maximum setting. What we do differently on both our 25 lb and 50 lb scale is to provide both weight measurements AND drag measurements for appropriate line tests. This is the key. I'd like to say it was all my idea, but its something we learned here through the efforts of another companies product. However, they went out of business and with that so too did a very useful feature. We brought that feature back - and it's what sets this spring scale apart from others. It takes the guesswork out of the equation for a fellow trying to set their drag properly, and quickly. And, like our Fish-N-Grip product above, you can "zero" the scale accurately so it's going to last even when the spring changes over time.

The scales are made from aluminum with stainless steel. You can use the product for weighing your catch or setting your drag. However, we made the scales with drag setting in mind. It's a good quality product, but like anything that may be used in saltwater, a bit of preventative maintenance will ensure it's long term performance.

It's easy to set your drag with this scale. There are markings on both sides of the scale. On the right is the weight, on the left you'll see two measures one in red, the other blue. Red is for 25% blue for 33% and the numbers indicate the line test being fished. So, for 30# line you'll see two optimum drag measurements indicating the appropriate level for your line test depending upon your preferences. Again, it is recommended that you set your drag properly to get the most performance from your reel. Lever drag reels are wonderful to own, but you are blowing it if you don't set your drag properly to maximize your reels performance. This scale helps you accomplish that better than any other on the market, and the value is better since it's direct from us to you - without middleman in the supply chain.

ToroTamer Tools
New Models!
Cut, Clip, Crimp & Split Ring Opener, too!

ToroTamer has some new tools for us this year. Toro made some well considered changes to their Plier and Multi-Plier product for 2017 and beyond. As before, these pliers are made from machined aluminum with stainless steel jaws. Their cutters are made from tungston carbide, capable of cutting 500# line. They're spring loaded for ease of use.

Toro's Multi-Plier offers anglers a very useful tool, with some improvements based upon angler feedback, and my own cut index finger...  The new tools from Toro put the cutter back in-line with the plier portion of the tool. Before the cutter was on the side, and it was possible (easier) to cut your finger if you weren't careful. So, we moved the cutter back to the jaws. We also made this product a bit more compact than the previous plier, the new models are 6 1/2 inches in length.  They come with a sheath and lanyard.  Pricing also improved a bit on the new production. The old Multi-Pliers ran $49, the plier version was $39. For the new production, Toro only offers the Multi-Plier, thinking that this tool covers the major duty of a pair of pliers, but also provides a split ring plier nose AND can take care of some basic crimping too! It's a crimping plier, with split ring function...and tungston carbide cutters capable of slicing mono, braid or even cable. It truly is a Multi-Plier, and worth the space in your tackle kit.

The cutters are on the other side of the jaws. Note the split ring nose and crimping cut outs. New finish Digital CAMO!

Boomerang Tools
New Models!

I've been using the little Snip for a couple years now, darn useful little gadget. The Snip is great for cutting braided lines, and the little one is great for those making nail knots and/or nub knots for their bread to leader connections. Very little chance of cutting into your main line or weakening your connection by an inadvertent chop. All models feature a retractable cable with split ring so you can attach the cutters wherever you need 'em. All have an integrated blade safety mechanism, and all of them cut cleanly and smoothly every time. As mentioned, I have been using mine for a couple years, and only use it for braid. Consequently it's stayed in good shape. These devices will also cut mono, but chances are if you do much of that the cutter's ability to deal cleanly with braided lines will degrade. So, I'd suggest to use it dedicated for one type of line or the other. The stainless steel cutters will hold up well and won't rust, the manufacturer has a one year warranty. The retractable 36 inch cable really comes in handy. So, why the name Boomerang? It's the retractable lanyard...these tools come back to you and don't tend to walk off since you can clip the tool to a belt loop or your tackle box.

Edge World
Great Price / Good Quality - Economy Tools

The folks from Edge World make some nifty tools for fishermen.  Their Ti Matte finish will look really similar to another firms "titanium coated" tools which were discontinued last year (hmmm, their initials are Shimano).  Those tools cost $14-16.  Going to a different source, with a different handle material, saves you some big time bucks. These are not some cheap import piece of excremental dung.  They're darn good tools, made from high grade carbon steel with non-slip handles.  They're an import but are of good quality and great value tools.  Double their price, you still won't find a better product on the market. They hold up to corrosion quite well.

Two Tools You Need

Doing some maintenance, simply need to spin on your bolts for the reel clamp or swap out a handle. Here are a couple hard to find must-haves you should keep in your bag or on your bench. The two tools pictured are some of the most useful things you can have available. Add a shorty screwdriver and you're pretty much done when it comes to working on Penns, Avets, Newells... Super versatile. The four way wrench covers the most used nuts/bolts used in fishing reel manufacture. The 8 in one Reel Handle Wrench will make life easier on you when time comes to open up a reel and take off the handle. These two products are offered together at a dandy deal, or individually. Both tools pretty well cover your needs for taking down Penn, Daiwa, Newell, Abu and some nameless bike makers reels.
