There are 3 sizes of AFTCO Fighting Belts. The AFB-3 "ALIJOS" is the perfect "day belt" for stand-up tussels with Sailfish, Dolphin, Kingfish, Small Tuna, Yellowtail, and other smaller to medium-sized gamefish. Stamped from pure marine grade gold anodized aluminum with a super-comfortable over-molded, closed cell polyurethane pad, the Alijos accommodates the same "Quick Clip" nylon straps as the larger AFTCO Fighting Belts. The stainless steel gimbal cross pin is removable, but unique is the thermal-formed nylon liner inside the aluminum gimbal pocket that helps resist scarring. The Alijos is lightweight and easy to wear, yet offers the same heavy-duty features of the larger AFTCO Fighting Belts.
The AFB-2 "SOCORRO" can be positioned a bit higher across thighs for maximum leverage. For stand-up style fishing, this is the ideal belt for battling big strong gamefish like Tuna, Marlin, Wahoo, and Big Yellowtail. Accommodating "Quick Clip" straps, the Socorro also matches up well with AFTCO MaxForce harnesses, the Socorro is 15.5" Wide x 10" tall.
The AFB-1 "CLARION" with its advanced design, materials and comfort it's the ultimate fighting belt for big game fishing. 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 belt straps (or optional drop staps) 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 orientation. A perfect match for the AFTCO MaxForce harnesses, the Clarion measures 19" wide x 13" high, and if it falls overboard, it floats!
