this hs been a great help to me & i would not go fishing without it,The snips are good - sharp enough, strong enough. I find that the beaded chain keeps wrapping itself around the snips though, and this can get fiddly.
I'm on my 2nd pair - the snips are good, but the pin on part is the weak link - the pin came undone, and the snips & zinger fell off somewhere out on the riverbank.
I've attached the new snips to a different zinger, non-Orvis, which snap clips onto a small d-ring on my vest. That is NOT going to come off.
So, 5/5 for the snips and for the zinger cord/retractor, which worked perfectly.
2/5 for the pin on part - it suffers the same fault as all pin ons - it works loose eventually, and falls off,Don't be fooled these may look like the cheap set of snips at your local fly shop but they are not. They are made way better. They have that great orvis quality.,This is the third Orvis Zinger which has fallen apart and lost in the stream. Unfortunetly I had a Micro Scissors Forceps attached and the whole was to deep to recover. I am thorughly disqusted with the quality of the Orvis Zingers.,This is a very handy and useful tool for any fly fisher.However the quality of the zinger does not match the quality of the snips. I used this tool approximately 6 times and it promptly fell apart . The screw that holds it all together backed off and promptly disappeared into the swirling waters,along with the snips.Leaving me to use my teeth for snips for the rest of my trip! To say the least I was not very happy with this Orvis product!!
