    Must have equipment. - 6/25/2015

    Net with magnet connection kept falling off. The Net Retractor is great ... net stays where it belongs and easy to reach when needed.

    Useful and reliable - 6/22/2015

    I bought this for a trip to Montana and it is extremely useful. It keeps the net out of the way until I need it. When I do need it, it is easy to reach and use.

    A real nice, well built retractor. No problems. Would recommend. Does what it's supposed to.

    Net Retractor w Recs - 5/6/2015
    By: from Northern CA

    Well made and works well for shoreline salt and freshwater salmon/ steelhead ghost net. Two improvements would be (1) an even still longer chord (48"), and (2) for saltwater and to eliminate bi-metal corrosion, the option for a solid brass slip ring instead of SS slip ring to attach to net. No nets come with a similar grade SS closed eye threaded loop ring to attach to the SS slip ring on the retractor, and no one manufactures a similar SS closed eye loop ring for large nets, but they are available in solid brass.

    Very nice product, plenty of retracting power. The only thing I would like better is if it had a better way to attach it.

    By: from Gillette, WY

    I recently purchased this retractor and have been out with it on one trip and it appears to be made of quality materials...Retracts the net very nicely! I will post another review at the end of the summer to see if it's still "holding up".
