        Comments about Dot Line Print Tongs (3 Pack):

        i like these tongs but sometimes find myself cursing at them. i wish they were a couple of inches shorter so that the tension would be easier to hold. i feel like i have to have old man death grip on them to keep my negative in the grasp. i pick a negative up and too many times it slips right back out into the chemistry. i dont think the issue is with the material and i know the placement of my hand makes a difference, but... also i wish the rubber ends werent so thick. i feel that if they were thinner or sloped to thinner they would scoop the negatives better. but the bamboo is great and they are easy to clean.

        Comments about Dot Line Print Tongs (3 Pack):

        I use these tongs as they're meant to be used, but I had a hard time getting a proper grip on my paper. It was difficult to "scoop" the paper between the tips and then squeeze tightly enough to keep the paper from slipping out. I found myself just using my fingers.

              Comments about Dot Line Print Tongs (3 Pack):

              I run a high school photography program and buy these every year. I love the different colored handles to color code each section of classes. They have aided in safety by keeping my students hands appropriately out of our baths and the rubber tips help them avoid scratches and creases. My only complaint is how easily the bamboo slides out of the plastic end... you can push them right back in but it is still a constant battle.

                The tongs work fine for the minimal printing I do as a hobbyist. They hold up pretty well.
