Slim, tapered shape makes them lightning fast in the water - easier to maneuver and deadly accurate. They're stronger and lighter too, so they bring fish into the boat with less flailing and confusion. The shafts are made from corrosion-resistant marine aluminum - the same material used in our famous "Unibutts" - and they are "swaged" for uniform strength from end to end, but with no unnecessary weight. Available lustrous Black finishes - anodized for lasting beauty and resistance to corrosion. All models are fitted with soft but rugged black grips molded from the same no-slip material found on the finest fishing rods. Black vinyl butt caps seal out corrosive moisture and prevent deck scarring. Gaff hooks are fashioned from stainless steel rods, with easy-to-sharpen triangular points. Black finish.
