Guide Review - Sheffield The Angler Multitool

I was sent a Sheffield "The Angler" 17 in 1 Multi Tool to test. It preformed all jobs suitably for a multi tool. You can filet a fish with it but a filet knife with longer blade is better. The pliers are long enough to get out most hooks but needle nose pliers are lighter. The sissors are great for cutting braided line - a must if you use braid. Sissors would be cheaper. But, you would need at leat 17 different tools to do all the jobs this one tool does, and their combined weight would be much more. And it would not be nearly as handy or easy to keep up with all of them.
