Great Product -
By: Troutbill from Marion, NC
If you like to check the length of your catch, this is a great product. Just clip it on your vest. When you want it, it is easy to use. Either unclip it or just pull it out. I like to take photos of some of the fish I catch and therefore it is nice to know just how long they are.

I'm always looking for products that makes life a little easier, and this tape measure fits the bill perfectly. The last zinger I had for my nippers was a Orvis pin on and it worked fine until one day it just fell off and was lost. That's when I found this thing. Not only does it have a carabiner clip that isn't going anywhere, it also has a clip on the end to hold my nippers. Plus it's magnetic which works great for holding a fly when I change tippet. Worth every penny.
Could be a great product but!!! -
"Great idea but then the the end broke off. Fishing the Bow river and my connected hemostats fell in the river and the tape measure sucked in never to come out again. Left with no hemostats." Do not give up on this product just have the manufacturer improve the end connection. I got it replaced, but I would try to find a way to reinforce the connection.
Good for short time -

Worked well for about a year the the end broke off. I was standing in the river fishing and my hemostats I had connected just fell in the river and the tape measure sucked in never to come out again. Left with broken tape measure and no hemostats.

I love this tape measure! It's so handy because of it's multi function features. My favorite part about it is the magnet. I use it to place flies on when changing out on the water.

This is a very handy tool for catch-n-release fisherman like me. You just reach for your pliers and have the tape measure right there!
Sturdy and Functional -
The carabiner portion of this tape measure makes it extremely functional. As you take measurements of your catch, the last thing you want to do is be searching for the tape measure. Time is critical, great job Orvis!
More Useful Than I thought -

I bought this as a tape measure; however, It works well as a zinger and its magnetic! -- Meaning it holds my forcipes or the random fly. Pretty useful for clipping on your shirt or wading jacket when you don't feel like hauling a lot of gear.
