Aftco Fighting Belts are designed to be the ultimate fighting belt with its 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 relatively low across the thighs, the load is distributed evenly for maximum pull when fighting 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.

Really nice belts
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.

Comfortable / High Quality
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.

Armor to fight the big fish
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.

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.
