Aftco AFB-2 Stand-Up Fishing Belt 50-80lb
|15.5'' Wide X 10'' High||50-80lb||$134.49 USD|
Aftco Fighting Belts are designed to be the ultimate fighting belt with it's advanced design, materials and comfort. The super-thick, closed-cell EVA foam back pad is engineered to maximize both comfort and leverage, so that when the belt is positioned releatively low across the thighs, the load is distributed evenly for maximum pull when fighitng big fish stand-up style. Co-molded to the foam back pad is a heavy-duty, yet lightweight gold-anodized, stamped aluminum front plate. Super durable, it features posts at each side that accept unique Quick Clips, which "snap" the two piece belt straps (or optional drop straps) in place for quickly getting into or out of the belt. Also featured is a super strong, molded glass-filled nylon gimbal pocket that is engineered to quickly guide rod butts into an optimum fish fighting position. The gimbal pocket's stainless steel pin is adjustable for horizontal or vertical alignment. A perfect match for the Aftco Maxforce Harness, these fighting belts are well built and offer great value and performance. As an added bonus, all Aftco fighting belts float should they fall overboard.

Ideal for use with Aftco AFH-1 Maxforce harness
The AFB-2 stand-up fishing belt is ideal for use with the Aftco AFH-1 Maxforce harness. It is lightweight, well padded and the quick-connect feature works well with the Aftco drop straps.

Hi quality, and built very well.
I bought this to support some offshore fishing with regular rods. I liked it because you can remove the pin and use it with regular rods.

Great belt for that bigger fish and fighting platform..
I have not used this belt yet but I already know it will serve me well and provide me with the support I need. I own the Aftco Alijos belt which is the model before this and this version is made with the same quality materials and features. The Alijos didn't give me the support I needed with the setup I was using and fish I was after. I was fishing with 50-60lb braid and landing California Yellowtail averaging 45-50lbs in Mexico. I am 190lb and 5'11" and this belt already feels like it will give me a better fighting platform. These belts are solid!
