"I love this thing! I did everything I possibly could to wear mine out over three seasons of non-stop abuse in AK, everything from cutting heavy mono to outboard repair to literally cutting split-shot off of line day in and day out and the blades never dulled a bit. I'm a hard person to please when it comes to gear and the CLS tool more than exceeded my expectations in every way." - Connor
The CLS tool is phenomenal solution if your looking for a one-size-fits-all multi tool to take with you to the river. It offers you hemostats, line cutters, a split shot tool (if you're into that sort of thing) a nail knot tool, hook eye cleaner and more. If you ask the folks at UTP what they like best about it you will probably hear about the intriguing knots it allows you to tie, check out the links below for more information.
Here's what Up The Poudre has to say:
"The CLS tool allows you to “Carry Less Sh!t” while having the capabilities of all of those things that have been hanging on your vest for so long. The tool provides a forceps for hook removal or split-shot closing, a scissors for cutting line and hackles, as well as a needle for opening the eyes of flies. But it’s the tools outstanding capability to simplify the tying of a strong knot between leader and tippet that sets it above all other tools on the market."
