Winge of the Week - Zips!

Your probably thinking that I’m going to criticise how quickly some manufactures zips break, well to be honest, the quality of zips have come on leaps and bounds in recent years to the extent that they can last years, even after constant use. Another annoying part of zips is how they catch, especially on sleeping bags, disastrous if they get stuck when trying to exit quickly in the event of a bite, however it’s the annoying slit in the metal part of the zip that really gets me, especially on products such as a quiver system, a product designed to take rods that are made up and have mainline in the vicinity of them. When manufacturers go to such lengths to create a product that is designed to protect made up rods they seem to fall down on attention to detail, which can lead to mainline damage and a potential lost fish. Knowing the problem, I’m sure that a manufacturer could use this as a selling point, especially on products such as quiver systems and create a zip without this annoying problem.
