The Wubbers ProLine Series, formerly known as the Apprentice Line, is engineered to provide superb mastery and control of wire and metal. They are made from high quality steel and are finished beautifully. The ProLine Pliers have ergonomic grips with a non-slip suede-like coating. Each plier is hand-finished to help prevent marring, and is rated to work with wire that is 16-gauge or smaller.

What Makes These Pliers Different?
You may wonder what makes the Wubbers ProLine Pliers different from the Classic and Baby Wubbers. The handles on the ProLine Pliers are mid-sized, shorter than the Classics, yet longer than the Babies. In addition, the ProLine Pliers offer a completely different “feel.” The slimmer handles have a built-in grip that is noticeably different. The grip features a turquoise, suede-like coating that allows jewelry makers' hands to better feel their work, thus offering great control.
I heard from so many people that there was a need for a line of pliers that offered great quality while also offering lower prices. I have worked for several years to develop a new line of Wubbers that would welcome new jewelry makers into the world of creating jewelry without breaking their pocketbooks.
My original intention was for this line of tools to specifically fill the needs of beginning jewelry makers. However, I have received great feedback about the quality and design of the Wubbers ProLine Pliers from some of the most recognized, experienced jewelry makers in our industry. It is with great pleasure that I bring to you the newest addition to the Wubbers family!

I have both the Classic and Baby Wubbers sets and love them both, but when I saw the new Apprentice set I had to have it. It was certainly time for a new set and these are my Birthday present to myself!
I love the feel of the pliers, the new slimmer lines of the handles, their balance and the finger grips fit my hands perfectly.
My wrists will thank Wubbers when I make chain tomorrow! I love all my Wubbers and have actually worn out a couple of pliers handles and springs, but not their grip! They still grip just about anything I need to grip.
The wide flat nose pliers have now become favorites of mine when it comes to chain making!

I knew from reputation that I would love these pliers, but they exceed my expectations. This set was such a great value, and there is nothing negative that I can say!

Call me what you will, a nerd,a geek or just plane passionate. I LOVE GOOD TOOLS! So that means I love these pliers. Nice and balanced, easy to work with all with less fatigue. I have arthritis in my left thumb and these help with the fatigue that I would feel with my old, small, cheap pliers.
I do like how the handles have the indentations that fit your fingers well and the no slip coating makes it easier to hold onto.
I like to work 2 bent nose pliers, so I can see another pair in the near future, maybe another of the chain nose too.
I now must be off to bid a fond bon voyage to my old, small, cheap pliers!

Love the size of this set, its perfect for me. I was surprised how they felt in the hand; not as light as I'd expect them to be in comparison to their size.
I wasn't expecting the grip to be what it is. I thought "suede-like coating" would be a soft foamy grip which its not. Truthfully I'm not crazy about the finger indents on the handles; my fingers don't naturally fit into or go to the indents.
The material used on the handles keeps your fingers from slipping so I don't understand why the finger indents would be necessary.
If the handle grips had a bit of softness to them and the handles had no indents I'd rate the quality of these pliers 5 stars.
