    Really Handy - 9/23/2014

    The net I have has an elastic cord that let it hang too low. With this retractor I no longer have a net floating between my legs and behind me. Strong retraction, works great.

    hands down the best net retractor out there. - 9/3/2014
    By: from southern alberta.

    Quick shipping. Easy payment. Keep that net out of the way. Easily access it when you need it with plenty of reach. One of the most important pieces of equipment I wear.

    I thought it was a bit on the pricey side but, upon close review, it appears well made and I expect will last awhile.

    This one works - 8/20/2014

    This net retractor is not inexpensive, but it is the only one that actually retracts my wooden landing net or wading staff. I have purchased a number of other brands and none come close to the strength of this retractor. Don't waste your money on the others.

    Great Purchase - 8/14/2014

    This retractor works exactly as stated. It has plenty of strength to keep my full-sized net high on my back. As stated in the title, great purchase!

    Perfect - 7/21/2014

    Does exactly what the discription says. No magnets to fuss with. Easy for people with limited shoulder movement to use. Walked through a sage brush flat and into little willows and it held net nice and high. Cable extends more than enough to reach fish and cable mechanism is very smooth. Going to buy one for my wife. Great stocking stuffer especially you get a Orvis net!

    The gear keeper net retractor worked as advertised. Holds the net in place and allows easy retrieval of net for netting fish. Strong and durable product.

    Excellent tool! - 6/24/2014

    I tried it yeasterday and it works great. I love the lock button also . This simplifies the usage of my net and allows me to capture salmon or trout much easier.

    Works Great - 6/19/2014
    By: from Essex, Connecticut

    I have 2 bad shoulders so reaching back to re-connect my net to my vest has always been difficult. This product eliminates the problem. The cord streches long enough for netting fish.and returns to its origional length after use....great product. The wading staff tender also works well.
