Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds great! Bought this after getting tired of stopping to pickup my net when fishing, I was using net magnets and it seemed like every time I bumped it my net fell off. Retractor works great and net is ever ready for that big one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Use Securely holds my net without being too hard to pull out. Locks in place when traveling and the net can be removed by the buckle if you need it to be.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gear Keeper Net Retractor The product does its job, just as it says in the title. The only things that I have noticed are that if it is hung on the back of a vest with a net, it will pull the back of the vest down. For example the Orvis Ultralight Vest. I had to front load the vest with extra weight to counteract the net and product weight. It would still pull the vest down in the back. It would probably work better with the Orvis Pro vest or waders. The second thing I noticed is that when you draw your net the retractor, the line will rub against the vest which I assume will bring wear and tear by means of abrasion over time. I'm thinking the magnetic net keeper might be a better product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved functionality! This Orvis retractor has replaced my magnetic net attachment. Permanently. No longer blindly trying to get the two magnets to meet behind my back! One caution: always check that the retractor is NOT locked before starting to fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased...would purchase again. This product works very well, both in maintaining the net high and secure, as well as in landing fish. The piece appears to be well made and is not heavy, therefore you don't notice it is there. Retraction tension is strong enough that net stays very secure. Good value and I would buy again.
