Default Fishpond Arrowhead Retractor

Click the image to open in full size.

Arrowhead Retractor
Quite possibly the most purposeful, elegant, and timeless piece of design by mankind is the arrowhead.*
This iconic treasure brings back visions of our American identity like nothing else. We add to this legacy with a new age tool that is machined and hand-crafted in Colorado. Instead of stone, the Arrowhead Retractor is made from 6060 aerospace aluminum. Available*November 1. MSRP: $29.95. (MidCurrent)

For one thing I'm just copy/pasting with no added opinion but made in CO for $30 it can't be too controversial. I just can't determine if it is for a net or smaller device like a big-buck (controversial) nipper.

Available Nov 1.

I have the Abel zinger which I would judge all others by. Actually near perfect for me.

I like the look of the Fishpond though.

I would be curious what the retraction cord is made of.

I had a cord made out of wire break on one of my retractors.

I replaced it with a retractor that has a Kevlar cord...so far, so good.
