Black nickel finish. Imported.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and practical Recently bought this item and now carry it with me at all times when fishing. Compact and practical. Invariably have it in my trouser pocket, but can easily attach to my belt. Both metric and imperial so should suit all tastes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to measure your big fish! Great to measure those big fish you land quickly. I’ve got mine attached to my sling strap for easy access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great add to the fishing vest. Haven't used it much yet but very helpful in measuring little brookies that I land with my 703 Superfine Glass rod. Also helps me keep track of when I need to add more tippet and/or leader to my line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I really enjoy the double use. The zinger might not be the best one but having a tape measure along with it is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zinger broke. Lost my forceps Love the idea of a combo retractor/measuring tape. Worked great for 2 days in Alaska. On the third day I reached down to grab my forceps to unhook a good-sized silver salmon. Tape was broken and forceps gone. Spent the next two days unhooking toothy fish with my bare hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I need I mainly use it for the measuring capabilities rather than a zinger. As a zinger it really isn't the best. There are better options however very convenient for measuring fish right in the water and quickly to get them back in the water

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only Orvis product I have that failed. 2 trips I never usually do this, but when I decided to try fly fishing I purchased everything Orvis. I look like a walking Orvis advertisement. I have nothing but good things to say about everything from the waders to the fly rod, hats, and net. This zinger, however, got half shredded on my first trip one of the first times I extended it to use it and this second trip the end broke off entirely the first time I went to pull it out to measure a fish. Unfortunately the negative reviews came true for me on this item. It is a very useful and convenient item, but I don't want to purchase another one just to have it break after 2 trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius! A great combination of gear. Especially the clip on. Now for a fish big enough to use it with!
