Features a black anodized shaft that is divided in two an 8' forward section with hook, and a 4' reat section, complete w/two rugged black vinyl grips. Constructed from 6061-T6 marine grade aluminum, and is joined in the middle with a ferrule and collet nut characteristic of the Aftco Unibutt. The ferrule and collet nut "joint" is extremely strong lightweight and fully waterproof when assembled. Both the ferrule and collet nut are permanently attached to the forward section, and because the end of the ferrule accepts a vinyl butt cap, this longer 8-foot shaft can optionally be used as a stand-alone gaff. When used together, the two pieces can be separated in seconds and stored separately. Equipped with a three-inch stainless steel hook, the 3612-HB Gaff is ideal for landing king mackerel, wahoo, dolphin and tuna, as well as other medium-sized saltwater gamefish.
