AFTCO fiberglass, tapered gaffs feature a special thick-walled, extremely strong but lightweight e-glass handle construction custom made for extreme strength and rigidity. All of our fiberglass handles are made on proprietary mandrels using specific tapers developed by AFTCO. They are available in 4’, 6’ and 8’ lengths and have the same 316L or N50 stainless steel hooks used in our popular Taper-Tip aluminum series of gaffs. Our exclusive “wedge-lok'' assembly process is used to assemble all of the hooks into the e-glass handles. The new fiberglass gaffs have a rich-looking dark brown epoxy finish with hand-wrapped black and metallic gold and blue thread trim wraps. All of the fiberglass series gaffs have handsome and extremely functional black nylon seine cord wrapped handles with hand-finished Turk’s heads on each end of the wrapped grips. All of the seine cord and Turk’s heads are finished with epoxy for durability and extra tackiness when gripped with wet or slimy hands. A large rubber “mushroom-style'' butt cap finishes the butt-end of each handle. The new fiberglass gaffs are available with 2'', 3'' and 4'' hooks. All of the 2''and 3'' hooks are 5/16'' diameter 316L stainless steel, and the 4'' hooks are all N50 stainless steel. All of the 6’ and 8’ models float. Handles and grip made in China, all hooks and assembly done in USA of USA materials.A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items.
