Unlike round points cut on a lathe, the tip of the point will not lay over if a bone is struck while gaffing a fish. Gaff handles are made from highly-polished aluminum. Features functional and desirable grips, the same used on professional exercise machines. Designed to offer maximum holding power with wet hands. Hooks size identifies distance from shank to point. Hook diameter:
3" hook = 5/16".
