Net Retractor w Recs -
By: SWFWFLY from Northern CA
Well made and works well for shoreline salt and freshwater salmon/ steelhead ghost net. Two improvements would be (1) an even still longer chord (48"), and (2) for saltwater and to eliminate bi-metal corrosion, the option for a solid brass slip ring instead of SS slip ring to attach to net. No nets come with a similar grade SS closed eye threaded loop ring to attach to the SS slip ring on the retractor, and no one manufactures a similar SS closed eye loop ring for large nets, but they are available in solid brass.

Very nice product, plenty of retracting power. The only thing I would like better is if it had a better way to attach it.

Fantastic product -
By: Bad694x4 from Gillette, WY
I recently purchased this retractor and have been out with it on one trip and it appears to be made of quality materials...Retracts the net very nicely! I will post another review at the end of the summer to see if it's still "holding up".
Great product -
By: DaneJohnson from Portland, OR
What you would except of an Orvis product - works great!
weighty but worth it -
By: paul16 from UK
When the retractor arrived I was suprised at its weight. However I used it for the the first time today and light dawned! When landing a feisty greyling, the net came readily to hand and more importantly removed itself immediately after I released the fish.Trying to resite a magnetic net keeper was thus avoided,especially important when balancing on the rocky bed of a northern UK river! Well done Orvis, a practical product which works extremely well.

This item is much larger and bulkier than I anticipated. I have returned to using a magnetic vest attachment
Second one purchased -

Gave the first one to my son. Needed another one for my net. It's a great product and works as advertised. Highly recommend to anyone needing a net retractor.
