Default Good pliers for wade fishing

Just as the title implys. Criteria for the pliers are able to be dunked(washed off afterwards of course), trying to keep the budget under $50.

Seems aluminum are my best option but wanted to see what else is out there. Right now I'm using some floating mustads that are plastic and absolutely suck for anything other than cutting mono.

Go to harbor freight. They have mini wire cutters. Orange handles. Will cut through braid. Mono. Wire. .99 a pair. Buy 10 pairs. If they get rusty throw away. Repeat.
Would go twice a season for the charter boat so the deckhand always had good cutters.
Just cant justify spending $100 on a pair of cutters that will end up getting dropped overboard or lost.

Definately second the Adaro P-Line pliers. I use them all the time for wading. They are not expensive, don't rust and the top cutters get to everything easy and cut it all including braid. Cutters teeth are replaceable but I have never had to do it in four years of constant use. Just a rinse and some Rem-oil from time to time on the grip teeth. You don't have to worry about the hinges.

Only gig that I have against them is that the sheath is made a bit cheap and will wear through on the front and then you have to find a replacement that fits.

Ditto on the P-Line pliers. i've got two pairs, one in my boat and one in my travel bag. 3 years and no problems, also the carbide blades are replaceable.

The $1.86 pliers work fine. Yes they rust, but try this...soak in white wine vinegar. If really corroded, it may take up to 48 hours to do the trick. Usually 24 does it. Work it a little (open and close) while immersed, once in a while. Will come out free moving like brand new. Keep lubed after that and you only have to soak every month or so. Trust me. Works great.

More expensive ones are best, but when they go over side not so good. Won't cry when cheapo's go over.

I'm using the gander mountain branded blue ones. got them on sale for $20(regular $40). similar to the p line above but with rubber grips. and the cutters are great and replaceable(where do you find replacements anyway?) . i use it for mono, braid, and afw surf strand 1x7. also use for split rings. My next pair if these ever get lost or misplaced will be the accurate piranhas since i can actually find their replacement cutters on tackle direct (they don't fit any other brands of pliers and i have tried a 4 so far)

this is my second pair since my old ones fell into the surf when i flipped my hobie when i still had it. and it lasted 1 year just rinsed after each use.
