Was changing out a couple today, recently purchased a couple new packages of the VMC inlines, they were in different package more like the Owners instead of the hard blister like pack they previously ones I had were in. It appears they have also change the style a little bit, the ring is more like the Owner as well... Question to you guy who do change out hooks, what brand/style split ring pliers do you use, like, dislike ? I've tried several brands and sizes. I just can't find a pair that works well for the size lures we all use inshore fishing. Always end up with hook point, pliers point, or split-rin stuck in my fingers.
