The Nipper 3 from Hatch brings a new ergonomic shape and improved spring mechanism for easier and more reliable use. Like Hatch fly reels reels, the nipper body is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and type II anodized for corrosion resistance in the salt. Tungsten carbide cutters are highly abrasion resistant, super sharp for cutting just about any size mono or fluorocarbon and replaceable.
New Shape - Now featuring a new ergonomic shape, crafted from 6061-T6 aluminum, protected with type II Anodize, and finished with a misted texture for ideal grip. Lends to a more natural feel and precise control in hand. Trim up those delicate 7x and heavier fluorocarbon tag ends with confidence.
New Spring - We have designed a torsion spring specifically made for our application. This 302 stainless steel spring features a compact single wrap design to exert rotary force. We know what you're thinking...What does this mean? It’s badass and drastically improved the life expectancy over previous models.
Cutters - Our tungsten carbide cutters have been and always will be the best on the market. We utilized decades of machining experience to create our custom cutting surfaces with an emphasis on abrasion resistance and reliable cuts through mono and fluorocarbon materials. The design has held up and proven itself since the original nippers were launched in 2016.
The Nipper 3 also features a needle post sized for cleaning eyelets from your even your smallest flies.
Every Hatch Nipper 3 comes with custom Hatch lanyard.
