    When I received this it had scratches on it. Not that it affects the quality but it was new. It's a bit bulky but again, it's two zingers in one. Not sure I would by another but the zinger part recoils fine. Just a personal preference I guess and it might be fine for others.

    An absolute must - 9/18/2013

    Every fisherman should have this zinger on his/her vest. Keeps two frequently used tools available at all times. The pin on is preferred to the clip as you can place it anywhere on your vest/jacket/shirt. Buy two. Trust me you will use them both.

    Functions well and I really like having the two zingers in one for my forceps and clippers.

    I use this well made zinger to hold my flotant and tippet sinker products. I use both wet and dry flotant and they are right there together when I need them. I confess to being an organization freak and this product just helps my cause.

    Not too bad - 9/29/2012
    By: from Maine

    I like having two accessories handy on one zinger. This product is basically as advertised. The only thing about it that I think could be improved is the strength of retraction on the lines. I have a pair of forceps hanging on one of the lines and they stretch pretty low, about 2 inches.

    This Zinger is great because it has the retractable cord not the springy rubber and works great with double capacity.

    Double zinger good idea with one caveat - 9/27/2011

    This is another zinger I own from Orvis. It has all the merits of their high quality zinger, but in TWIN mode. On the one hand, it's nice to have two items radily available on one zinger. But, I have found more utility out of my single line zingers that avoid bumping the utility items into each other. Still a very good product, but I prefer the singles.

    This is perfect for scissors/clippers and forceps/ketchum release with great length of travel and easy fixing to a fishing waistcoat. the only thing it needs to make it perfect is the magnetic capability of the single version Orvis make.

The Orvis Zinger
The Orvis Premium Zinger
The Orvis Premium Zinger
One of Orvis' best-selling products was dreamed up over lunch. In 1967, Orvis owner and President Leigh H. Perkins was at lunch in Manchester, Vermont's Coburn House hotel. A waitress named Mavis attracted Perkins's attention, thanks to her order-taking pencil. This wasn't an ordinary pencil -- it was attached to a tiny retractable reel and pinned to the front of her blouse. Mavis could pull the string, write down the order, let go and the pencil would roll back up, out of the way until she needed it next.

Perkins couldn't help but stare. He realized that this handy contraption could be adapted for sporting use, that every fly fisher in the world needed just such a gizmo to keep their nippers close at hand, without risk of losing them in the water. He decided to put his idea into action, and had small stainless-steel cylinders--proudly emblazoned with the Orvis logo and dubbed "Zingers"--made and placed in his store. Fishermen jumped on the product immediately, using them to hold not only their nippers, but also nets, flashlights, and water thermometers. They were an instant success and Orvis sold millions of the handy gadgets over the years. Orvis even developed a Zinger that contains a retractable tape measure, so that you can measure your fish before releasing it. Today, Orvis sells five different types of Zingers that serve a variety of purposes.

By the way, Perkins hired that waitress, who was a valued Orvis employee for years.
