That is exactly what I found...the tongs are WAY too rough and if you get excited, it gets way too hard to judge how much force you are putting into it. I use just a standard midwest 36 inch hook I believe. It is not exactly the strongest hook for prying up certain objects I do not want to put my hand under, but it has withstood a fair amount of stress. But on the flip side, it is bent to some degree now haha. I plan on getting a stumpripper from herpsupplies.com. I have heard they last for MANY years so it makes up for the extra money (about $70). IMO hooks are the only tools worth using and if I could only carry one tool with me into the field, I would take a good hook. Tongs are ok sometimes, I snapped my small hook in half, and a good hook can be just as good of a pinning tool in the right hands. My opinion. Andy
