Perfect for my small chest pack -

These are perfect for smaller packs,or a lanyard. If they break, Orvis will just hand you another one, no questions asked. Hope it lasts!
broke on 1st outing -
By: mountainrivergal from Pittsburgh PA
I bought this right before Christmas. I needed a zinger that pinned on, as others have fallen in the water. Went fishing for first time yesterday. Had my nippers on it. It wouldn't retract the first time I used it! I don't expect Orvis products to break on the first use! Will be taking it back.

Just got done with 8 hours of fishing and in the last hour I noticed it had fallen off my sling taking my nippers with it. It had always worked well but when I bought it I noticed clip holding it to my sling didn't see to stay closed very well. So now I'm out my nippers and zinger. Not happy.
very useful, even if not an angler -
although an odd stocking gift, it's so-o-o useful as a tether for subway pass and ID in the pocket of a senior.
Ok, but not the best -

I got one of these when I bought a fully loaded pack at orvis. It is ok, but not sturdy enough. It fell apart within a month.

It is "broken" even before I get to use it. It reminds me of an old bathroom rollerblind that only retracts a little bit at a time & after many attempts it will finally reel in. Badly constructed!
Very good 'smaller' zinger -

I prefer this zinger for my nippers--nice and small. For forceps, I would go with regular size or such. This one attaches firmly and the clasp keeps any item firmly in place.
I bought two of these micro zingers to hold my nippers and forceps on my chest pack. The one holding the nippers exploded after just a few pulls. The coating on the wire came off and jammed the recoil and then the flimsy plastic casing came apart . The other one hoilding my forceps seems to be OK (so far).

GOOD BUY -
By: MACK75 from Newcastle, UK
I purchased my first one of these over a year ago, after about 30 trips out over the course of the year it gave up the ghost, This is not a bad review as I think I had good use from it, and I had no hessitation to buy another one to replace it.
