I went with the surface mount for the option of being able to hard mount the part to my kayak. I wanted something more permanent. The low profile design keeps the mount very snag free. Overall function of the retractor seems to be great. I have used it with fish grips and a heavier set of pliers so far and have had no issues with it doing it's job. My main goal was to keep my tools close and secure. I'd say this mount does just that.
These are great. I have two installed under the seat of my kayak and they are extremely handy for things like pliers, fish grips, or pretty much anything that you need handy, but don't want to lose when you flip. They are also useful for things you might accidentally drop overboard. Also, they tolerate the elements well. I have a second hand yak that had these installed for a while and they stood up to the salt.
