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.

Aftco belts are solid, comfortable, distribute the weight evenly, overall a great belt. I wouldn't dare anymore to fight a 200lb YFT without it. I own the Clarion and soon will get the Socorro.
ProsGreat quality, comfortable, solid.

You can go cheaper with fighting belts like I did with my first one, but don't expect them to be as comfortable, or use them for as long without tiring of it. These belts are quality made and will stay comfortable for much longer while your fighting huge fish, which i can attest to leads to less fatigue. Would you rather be focused on how uncomfortable you are or the giant fish your trying to land?

Really nice belts
November 13, 2018
These are much nicer than most i have seen. love that they are so light and comfortable yet quite durable. I also love the quick strap feature so you do not have to lose mobility throughout the whole day, but can quickly get it on when you hook into a big fish.

After catching some big sharks and wahoo on this belt, I can say I am really pleased with it. My friends have some of the "one size fits all, nonadjustable" white belts with hard waistband that just slide around the waist. I've always felt like they move around and aren't secure. Although this one may take an extra second to get on since the strap snaps in place, and has adjustment, I feel like it is much more secure. Sure it's expensive, but I don't think I will ever be buying another belt. This one is built to last a lifetime.

It is made strong and it does not give up under the pressure. I think it is as important tool along whit my real and rod the rest of tackle. If you like fighting big fish standing up you must have it.

Can the pin be removed for use with a Trevala rod that does not have a cross in the butt?
1 Answers
Yes, because the belt is built so you can adjust the pin from horizontal to a vertical positioning. So, you can just leave the pin out to use a rod that will not fit with the pin in (vertical or horizontal) since the pin can be removed to adjust its placement.
