This is the best net retractor of all time in my opinion. I've used these retractors since I was in high school and I've never found anything as durable or with as much retraction power to keep your net where you want it. I combine it with a Tactical Fly Fisher Extra Strength magnet on the side of the net to position the net where it's ready for quick reactions. - Devin
