Split Ring Pliers

Cultiva Split Ring Pliers

The Cultiva split ring pliers make it much easier to remove barbed treble hooks and replace them with single barbless hooks.

The opposing "teeth" on the Cultiva Split Ring Pliers make it easy to open a split ring and hold it securely.  Also, the jaws on the Cultiva Split Ring pliers are rounded, which gives you much more room to maneuver the hook eye into the gap between the two parts of the split ring.

Cultiva Split Ring Pliers do cost more than the cheap ones, but from the standpoint of saving time and preventing frustration, they are definitely worth it.

The Cultiva Split Ring Pliers are for split rings ranging from size 1 to size 9. Although the package clearly states size 1 to size 9, they will also work on the size 00 split rings. It is a tight fit, and the Daiwa split ring pliers would be a better choice, but you can use them for the 00 rings.

 The Daiwa Split Ring Pliers - Small really are small! They are only about 2 1/2" long, but it turns out that is not too small. They work just fine and are not at all hard to use. The best thing about them is that you can use them on the smallest split rings. They are designed to be used with split rings ranging from size 00 to size 2.

The split rings that are used on the Daiwa Vega spoons are about as small as I've seen. The small Diawa Split Ring Pliers will open them easily.
