Net Holder Works but... -
By: FishOBX from Charlotte, NC, USA
This is my second magnetic net holder. I like the simplicity of the Orvis design. My other holder has a carabiner and leash to attach to my wading belt in order to assure my net isn't lost if I drop it in the stream or it gets separated while working my way through streamside brush. The carabiner & leash works but it does have a tendency to get tangled with my wading staff. The Orvis coiled leash is simpler & better in that respect. The magnet on my other holder is definitely stronger but the Orvis magnet has worked well. So stronger doesn't necessarily mean better. My only concern with the Orvis setup is the welded loop on the coiled cord. It looks like it could easily separate if enough pressure were applied, such as when snagging it on brush as you're hiking to your next spot. Some earlier reviews indicated this was a problem and resulted in lost nets. So I took the precaution of reinforcing the coil. I would have given this product a 5 rating if not for this issue.
very useful, slightly longer stretch cord might be helpful
Great Product -

Completely pleased with this product. I'm amazed with the strength of the magnets, no groping when reattaching, just put the net behind you and the magnets snap together. There is plenty of reach on the coiled lanyard. Great quality at a reasonable price.

Net holder works great for the most part. My only concern is the strength of the magnet. When I jumped only 2 feet down from a bank to the waters edge, the magnet let go and my new expensive wooden dropped on a rock and caused some damage to it. As long as you are just wading, it's perfect.
A needed purchase -

I bought a net last year and it dangled, caught on trees and bushes, dragged in the water. After purchasing the magnetic net holder none of that is a problem. It just took a couple of fishing trips to figure out how to connect the magnets. But not a big deal and now working just as I imagined.
Worth the price -

Just received my magnetic net holder. I was questioning the price compared to others I looked at. Once I set it up on my vest I am stoked! Great magnetic strength and ease of use. Orvis you rock!

I don't know how I survived on the river without this net holder. It has made managing my net on the river so much easier and has even kept me from losing my net a couple of times. I highly recommend this over other similar products
great item -
magnet is extremely strong, keeps net out of the way but accessible

Orvis Does it Again -

This is a great product. The magnet is very strong and the retractable cable is heavy duty.
