Rust is another big factor I pay attention to when I’m testing fishing tools; there’s no point in buying something if it’s going to become unusable after a month. The EGO Kryptek Mini Gripper has been quite resistant to rust after lots of extended exposure to moisture. I’m not taking special care of this tool. I’ve been abusing it on a weekly basis and I haven’t seen a speck of rust on it yet.
This tool has earned itself a permanent spot in my boat. It’s small, compact and it works exactly how it should. I’m pretty thrilled that I don’t have to monkey around trying to lip those crazy stripers this summer.
