Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem Solver! I converted an aluminum ski pole into a strong, elastic cord-attached wading staff that floats, but it had a tendency to interfere with netting hooked fish. This Orvis retractor solved the problem, and also benefitted hiking through streamside "jungles" when it's retracted at my hip while still being ready for immediate support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect I have used this about 6 or 7 times. My staff is always accessible and within arms reach. I can't imagine being without it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Product That Stands Up To Heavy Use I was a little leery about this tether when recieved, and expected it to break, but after a full season and a half of heavy use, it continues to operate flawlessly. Great product! Just purchased one for my brother!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I got two of the retractors one for my wading staff and one for my net. The product is exactly as advertised. Fair price and speedy delivery. Definitely consider Orvis for other fishing gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Works great with my wading staff. Good quality too. The clip can be a pain. Use the pin.
