Decent Pliers ??

Has anyone got a suggestion for top quality piers that wont rust ?? Cost not an issue

I have recently given away my Abel Pliers to a guide , he loved the look of them , I however found them no real use thanks to the wide body but lack of length.

I have looked at the Van Staals and Acurate and although they look '' the dogs nuts '' as we call things in the Uk , they will have the same issue. To much bulk and no length.

What im looking for is a slimline pair of pliers that you could unhook a bonefish or a smaller pollack with in the same manner as surgical forceps but perhaps with enough strength to be able to un hook Big flies from Big fish with lots of teeth .

So similar to the Doctor Slick Barracudas but high quality stanless??
