The FreeHander lives up to its name, offering 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. Optimized for use with Mono & Fluorocarbon line.
Gerber took the familiar design of the line nipper and elevated it – honing in on the problem areas that anglers face. The FreeHander is not only a nipper, but a tool that can manage line or lure exchange in real time. The genius of the design centers around SuperVise Tech™, a pivoting retention clip that cinches line during lure exchange. No more flailing line or lures lost to the drink, just an easy to operate line vise that acts as an additional hand. A tether point is built into the pivoting line cutter that allows the angler to swivel the tool in any direction to get into tight spots with minimal strain.
Inclement weather isn’t anything new for anglers, freezing temps and wet conditions can be par for the course. What isn’t the norm is an upgrade that the FreeHander boasts: a wide paddle design for maximum contact between the angler and the tool. The result is thoughtful surfacing that plays to the need for control when working with small lures, thin line, and unpredictable conditions.
Gerber tools are built to last a lifetime. To ensure optimal performance, rinse your tool with fresh water and dry thoroughly with a clean towel. Apply oil to hinges and moving parts on a regular basis.
