Gold plates look great and are easy to install. Only problem is that you can see dent mark and very small paint issues that are hardly noticeable unless you inspect it carefully. Great value for the money.
Strong enough to support garmen rangefinders. Handy little retractable keychain. Great for heavy range finders etc.
Does not work very well, not enough tension. Put a small light golf towel on it and the weight of the towel pulled down the retractor.
