well, maybe not useless........but highly unnecessary.
unless you want to wear an eye patch for the rest of your life.
have yet to use a pair, except for the curved ones, to fish string through a tight spot. even then, i feel like a dummy
when i have to do so.
but, i'm a dummy.
Why isn't dummy spelled with a B? I would have to agree with you, the three most used tools I have in order of importance are 1) starting clamp, 2) bent nose pliers, and 3) side cutters.
EDIT: I have some bent needle nose pliers and the are not near as easy to use as standard bent nose.
