Rated 4 out of 5 by DBennett Effective
I only needed the magnet to attach to my vest. No idea as to the effectiveness of the cable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NMBIII Needs 8lb magnet
This is the product I have been looking for. I've used it for two months now and it is perfect except for two things.
1. The magnet needs to be a little stronger. Sometimes my net will just fall off when I'm doing heavy hiking or take a heavy step. I don't like it when my nice net fall 5 feet onto rocks.
2. Both magnets swivel so when I'm trying to connect it (it's on my back so I'm doing this blind) the magnets will often 'find' each other but instead of connecting as shown in the product photo one magnet will connect to the side of the other (basically at 90 degrees). If i can find a way to rigidly mount one of the magnets to my net so that it doesn't swivel I think it'll work better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matri $50 magnet for less than 1/2 the price
I was given this magnet as a gift after purchasing my Frabil Rubber net (See it on BPS, great net!) and it holds the net extremely well and doesn't even come apart unless I want it to. A must-have for any angler who fishes while wading, especially fly fishermen. It was a whole new world when I used this attachment to gain easy access to my net hooked onto my back.

This magnetic net holder is the perfect accessory. It holds the net securely until needed and releases easily. If you need more time to play the fish, just let go and the stretchable tether keeps it handy and you won't lose your net downstream. I only wish it came with instructions for connecting the net to the device and vest. I made it work nevertheless.

Personal preference...check something like google images for a reference and see what one you like best. I like mine to have the handle towards the ground so I can grab it easy, others like the handle on their back.
