August 2019
Author: Stanton Upson

The Center-Drive Plus offers uncompromising performance through revolutionary design. The innovative center-axis driver opens to align like a real screwdriver, yielding maximum torque and rotation. No productivity is sacrificed with the addition of a 30% longer outboard blade and one-thumb opening sliding jaws. New to the Plus is the addition of the much-requested scissors, tumble-finished tools, and a premium leather sheath.

"Unless you are going on a super lightweight sheep hunt, I definitely recommend packing a multi-tool. The new Center-Drive Plus from Gerber holds its own against many of the multi-tools I have used in the past. The versatility of the tools from the spring-loaded needle nose pliers to the screwdriver with swappable bits is incomparable. I like to use a pair of pliers to lightly grab the cape and pull away as I cut around the bases. The pliers allow for a sturdier grip as opposed to your hand on slick flesh. One of the coolest features is the spring-loaded scissors that can help you open meals or even notch tags with ease. Coupled with the easy-to-access knife on the side of one of the grips, Gerber thought of everything while making the tool quick and easy to use. With all of the drill bit options and the large leather carrying case, it can get a little heavy. I would suggest selecting the two drill bits you use the most and have those placed in the multi-tool. From scissors to the pliers, the Center Drive-Plus has you covered." - Stanton Upson, Hunt Advisor
