AFTCO tapered Fiberglass Gaffs feature special thick-walled, super strong, yet lightweight E-glass handle construction, custom-designed for extreme strength and rigidity. All of our fiberglass handles are rolled on proprietary mandrels using specific tapers developed by AFTCO, and are fitted in our factory with the same stainless steel hooks used in our popular Taper-Tip Aluminum Gaffs. Our exclusive "wedge-lok" assembly process is used to secure all of the hooks into the E-glass handles. Featuring a rich-looking dark brown epoxy finish 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.
