GERBER debuted a collection of new fishing products at iCAST 2017 in Orlando, Florida, USA. The good news is that the range will be available in Australia at selected Anaconda stores in December.
The new collection features 12 multi-functional tools that are, according to the manufacturers, painstakingly designed and tested, because if it’s taking up space in a kayak, on an ATV, or inside a vest, it better be worth it. Here are a few of the leading products (see also the gallery above).
Linedriver Line Management Multi-tool
The compact, dual-ended LineDriver has everything needed to simplify line management: one end rotates to quickly tie knots and clear eyelets, the other end features a crimper, hook threader, and scissor snips. A pocket clip and tether point keep the tool secured for easy access.
Magnipliers 7.5” Pliers
Swift power is on hand with the durable, hot-forged Magnipliers. The ergonomic trigger grip is offset to keep line of sight in tight places, while the finger choil offers maximum control. The thumb lock and ambidextrous tether points ensure safe stowage and transport while on the move.
Processor Take-A-Part Shears
The Processor Take-A-Part Shears work as a cohesive unit but can also act as independent tools; creativity and control combine in this revolutionary design.
Controller Fillet Knife System [6”, 8”, 10”]
The Controller Fillet Knife System is designed for clean, smooth cuts with a flexible blade that provides just the right amount of give. The intuitive GuideFins and tactile HydroTread Grip allow control of the knife even in slippery conditions.
FreeHander Line Management Tool
The FreeHander offers one-hand engagement when cutting and securing line. The wide paddle design gives intuitive purchase in cold or wet conditions, and moveable parts provide a custom fit. It is designed for use with monofilament and fluorocarbon line.
Neat Freak Braided Line Cutters
Cutting with precision was a key design influence of the Neat Freak Braided Line Cutters. Micro serrated blades partner with BearHand Control to deliver ergonomic confidence in hand.
Gutsy Compact Processing Tool
The slim Gutsy is designed to be efficiently stored and offers four essential functions to get the job done.
The Defender Tether offers a carabiner designed to fit on-finger for intuitive control while there is a patented line vise on each side for secure tension relief. Line is protected by an override lock-out system, and the tool is easily carried on straps, belts, or waders with a wide-body flexible clip.
