    BEWARE- NOT STAINLESS!!

    They work well, and are wonderful, except for the fact that the springs RUST and do not maintain their "strength" or tension in holding prints- they weaken considerably over time....Read complete review

            Easy to grip those big wet slippery prints with these. Don't waste your money on the silly bamboo ones!

                    I'm new to developing my own prints, and I've got to tell you these tongs are worth every penny. Before I got these my prints had all kinds of tong marks on the edges, sometimes more, sometimes less. With these tongs, my prints are extremely easy to grab. Once I have a print it is easy to hold over developer tray to let drain. I have never dropped a print back in the tray w/these tongs, and my prints now come out free of tong marks. I love these print tongs. I just wish that I had bought these the first time around.

                        I run a high school darkroom. These tongs last so much longer than any plastic or bamboo... BUT the rubber "feet" pull off so easily. when they get lost down the drain the raw edge of the metal scratches your prints terribly. Still, for their sturdiness and rust resistance, I give them four stars

                            Better than bamboo and plastic. Nice short tongs with good spring mechanism. My only gripe is that the plastic tips (which are nice and soft) simply push on. Which means they also fall off when giving them a vigorous rinse at the end of the day. No big deal though.

                                    Stainless Steel is durable and will last for much longer than wood tongs.
