Nickel Zinger -
By: QHLVR from Wyoming
I ended up using it as a badge holder for work because it retracts so that I can swipe my badge in and out of facility and departments. It is very well made. I will order 2 more for fishing as originally intended.
My second zinger.....in 10 years! -
By: twintbo from Texas
This thing is great. My original has been front and center for at least 10 years. It has not died but is starting to fray a bit on the cord so I thought I would cycle a fresh zinger in. Great product, has stood up to heavy use.
best zinger -

I replaced my old zinger with the one when I also purchased a new nipper. My old zinger which was Orvis lasted almost fifteen years.

I bought one of each (clip on and pin on) I was impressed with the strength of their retraction. The pin on clasp seems trustworthy but I just ordered two more clip on type for my wife to be sure

Works great and has not gotten stuck yet. Hopefully it will continue. Nice look with big clamp.
One of the Essentials!! -

While I am very pleased with all Orvis products in general, the Nickel Zinger is a "must have" for the tackle box and especially for fly fisherman. Not only is this product robust and reliable, but it is also very attractive with its nickel finished metal case.
Works great -
By: FlyingJ from Catskills, NY
I went with the pin-on version and it works great. I have one for my nippers and one for a hemostat. Seems to be well constructed and durable, though this is my first season using them.
needs work! -

I will not use my double style Orvis Zinger again. Twice it fell off the vest with only a forceps and thermometer attached. Was able to withstand cold water to retrieve from stream bottom.
H2 zinger -

These are the best looking, best performing zingers, I've ever seen. The price won't break the budget either. This is an excellent product, highly functional, and great looking too. I highly recommend these zingers!
