Work 6″ – AKA – The SplitShot Removing BadAss, AKA SplitRing Solution. We introduced the Work 6″ in 2008, augmented them in 2010 with internal spring goodness and have been selling them to thousands of happy anglers – both spin and fly, especially the fly anglers who use weight when nymphing or throwing streamers (the majority).
- Precision ground Pick Tip – to easily remove small split shot, weights, and all split rings. This is a significant design difference. We grind our tip to a steep angle so that when it engages with the weight or split ring, it starts prying immediately. Very effective with small weights which usually are quite difficult to remove from line or tippet.
- Half Textured/ Half Smooth Tip – to make both de-barbing and holding thicker gauge hooks easier.
- Attachment Hole/Tightening area – to attach pliers to your pack (pick tip can rip some fabric), or to use while tightening/checking the knot on your streamer or salt water popper.
- Crimp Ridge – improved crimping power for weight, and great for sleeves used with wire rigging
- Cutting Blade – to effectively cut all types of line.
- Internal Spring – increased operating tension. This is a significant design difference. The internal spring forces the pliers arms apart, they want to be open in your hand and that makes it much easier to use them.
- Stout pliers – thicker than our standard 6″ pliers because we know you can use the operating leverage and strength.
- Individually Quality Controlled and improved at our HQ in Utah.
- Weight: 2.3 oz
- Unconditional Warranty

Justin Carfagnini –
One of my go to tools for when I’m on the river wading for trout or bass using either my fly rod or spin gear. There are so many functions to this 1 set of pliers. The Work 6 makes it a breeze to smash the barbs on my hooks. It’s also extremely useful helping me get those knots to my flies tight and secure.
D. Powell –
These are not bad, but there are more features than I need, and I just prefer the ultralights. The one thing that I really like is the pick-tip, which functions as advertised for removing split-shot. Because of the pick-tip, I had to use the hanging hole, rather than just clipping it to my vest, because the pick-tip would destroy the fabric. The cutting blade is small and limited in use for me. I never had a use for the crimp ridge. The handle is comfortable and solid. The locking mechanism functions properly.
