The AFTCO tapered Fiberglass Gaffs have a special thick-walled, super strong and lightweight E-glass handle construction that provides extreme strength and rigidity. AFTCO's fiberglass handles are rolled on proprietary mandrels using special tapers and are fitted in the factory with the same stainless steel hooks used in the popular AFTCO Taper-Tip Aluminum Gaffs. The exclusive "wedge-lok" assembly process is used to secure all of the hooks into the E-glass handles. The epoxy finish is a rich dark brown, with hand-wrapped black and metallic gold and blue thread trim wraps. Each gaff has a handsome and extremely functional black nylon seine cord-wrapped handle with hand-finished Turk's heads on each end of the wrapped grips. 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.
AFTCO Fiberglass Gaffs are available in 4, 6, and 8-foot lengths with 2, 3, or 4-inch hooks. All of the 2 and 3-inch hooks are 5/16" diameter 316L stainless steel, and the 4-inch hooks are 3/8" diameter N50 stainless steel. The 6 and 8-foot models will float if dropped overboard.
