I couldn’t count the contraptions I’ve owned that had one job to do and then later failed at that one job. Granted most I’ve used on and in the water. This Zinger tool stays at my setup bench where I rig or re-rig client rods on a daily basis. At first glance and hold it feels like it’ll outlast the rest. Time will tell but so far, it’s stout and working like it should.
One of the zingers failed to retract on the first use. Customer Service promptly replaced it, very pleased with ease of replacement. Hopefully this one is better (1st was chrome this one is black)
I've had this dual zinger for maybe a month and have been out on the water with it three times, no contact in water at all. today it decided to just rupture into pieces. if you need a zinger look elsewhere.
I bought the dual zinger and it lasted one trip down river. The first few pulls wouldn't retract fully without a lot of help and messing around and the next few pulls put a handful of parts on the boat floor. If you charge $15 for a zinger, have whoever is making them for you make them better, or sell them for $3 in bulk on the shop counter like the other cheap stuff is sold.
I had just received a replacement double Zinger for one that bound up only to have the replacement bind up on retraction as well. I don’t know if it is a bad design or just quality control but this is the third one of these to malfunction and it is discouraging. I really enjjoyed the product when it worked but this is annoying.
