AFTCO–Flying Gaff Handle, Black
Flying Gaff Handle, Black
|Length||6 Feet 7 Inches|
The slim, tapered tips of AFTCO's taper-tip flying gaffs slice through water faster and with greater accuracy to minimize the problems of gaffing powerful fish. Like the taper-tip aluminum gaffs, the shafts of these flying gaffs are swaged for uniform strength from end to end, thereby eliminating unnecessary weight. The hook seats in a tough plastic insert fitted into the gaff tip and is held in place by a length of 20lb. test line tied to a steel post affixed to the shaft. When a fish is gaffed, this line snaps, providing a clean and immediate release. A machined aluminum gimbal at the butt of the shaft secures the attachment rope; and along with the plastic insert in the tip, prevents water from seeping into the shaft. If dropped overboard, the gaff handle will float. Shafts are 6' 7" long, with 1-3/8" butt diameter fitted with two black non-slip grips and anodized with a lustrous black finish for beauty and resistance to corrosion.
