nicer than expected -
I ordered this for my husband for Father's day & he was very impressed with the quality of the zinger. he liked the clip style over the pin style so that it could be easily and quickly removed from shirt to shirt. we will buy more for other gifts!

Nice Styling -
By: kjcourtney14 from Central Pennsylvania
I bought two clip-on style zingers because I don't like putting "holes" in my gear, the pin on style didn't seem to have the best reviews, and because I like to switch my gear back and forth between two different packs. I haven't used them extensively yet, but they seem to be well made and the clip seems to hold well. If they end up standing the test of time I'll gladly come back and give them a 5 star rating.

Works well. appears to be durable. Only time will tell for sure. They look nice too.
Black Nickel Zinger -
By: Sissylong from Vero Beach, FL
Great Zinger! I use this one for my office ID & key card, because it has a strong cable and not a string. Plus, it looks great!
Poor Quality Control -
Pin on style. Opened package and looked at pin. Rotating closure on pin very loose, would not stay closed; let pin pop open. Tried to see if closure could be tightened and it broke. Trashed it. Orvis would replace it or refund money but I am not in a mood to go back. Bad product discourages customer loyalty.
Zawesome Zinger! -
By: EsopusExpert from New Windsor, NY
Orvis's new black nickel model (replacing the silver brass model) is stylish and responsive. I went ahead and purchased the version with the safety pin attachment, even though that part snapped off the old zinger I had (but I had it for over a decade). This new black model actually compliments my new fishpond vest from Christmas better (how vain). I still wish that these zingers had a mechanism that permit the cord to lock into position, rather than having constant pressure to recoil, but it works well as is, of course. Strongly recommended!
Must have accessory -
This plastic coated wire zinger is available with a clip-on option. This I find extremely convenient, given that I will often change my outer clothing according to the prevailing weather. In fact, so good is it, that I keep a spare in my bag. The last one functioned perfectly for some 2 years; then 'came apart' due to an unnoticed loosened screw on the back, (hence 4 stars). This is, however, easily prevented with a spot of glue.
