AFTCO MAXFORCE (AFH-1) THE ULTIMATE STANDUP HARNESS

AFTCO MAXFORCE (AFH-1) THE ULTIMATE STANDUP HARNESS

   The AFTCO MAXFORCE is the ultimate in harness design for fighting big game fish stand-up style. The combination of lumbar and sit-in pads distributes the load below the hips, allowing the lower body to exert maximum pulling leverage with superb comfort under heavy drag loads. Featured is super-comfort molded, closed-cell EVA foam padding, with a tough, waterproof lycra polyester cover. The liner is made from synthetic terry cloth, which not only wicks moisture, but has enough “tooth” to keep the harness from slipping around and chafing. Attached to the inside liner is a name and ID tag. Included is a mesh bag with grommets for rinsing the harness with fresh water and for easy storage. Otherwise, the AFTCO MAXFORCE Harness is completely synthetic and machine washable.

AFTCO CLARION (AFB-1) THE ULTIMATE BIG GAME FIGHTING BELT

AFTCO CLARION (AFB-1) THE ULTIMATE STANDUP BELT

   The AFTCO CLARION fighting belt is designed for 80-lb. to Unlimited tackle and has a super-thick, closed-cell EVA foam back pad that 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. The CLARION measures 19" wide by 13" high and is a perfect match for the AFTCO MAXFORCE HARNESS. The AFTCO CLARION is adjustable to fit waist sizes from 28” to over 50”, and it floats!

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 ALIJOS can be matched up with the AFTCO MAXFORCE HARNESS (AFH-1).

   All of AFTCO’s Fighting Belts are now constructed from thick and durable stamped marine-grade aluminum plate with a gold anodized, corrosion resistant finish with laser-etched AFTCO logo. The belts feature a super- durable, co-molded, closed-cell polyethylene pad which is co-molded right to the aluminum plate. The waterproof pad is textured to eliminate slippage on the thighs, and vented for comfort during long stand-up battles.  The AFTCO Fighting Belts have a unique, removable gimbal pocket which allows the versatile stainless gimbal-pin to be changed from vertical to horizontal positions, or completely removed from the belt. The rugged gimbal pocket is made from molded, glass-filled nylon composite, with stainless steel fasteners. A handy Allen wrench is AFTCO'S STAND-UP FISH FIGHTING SYSTEM (included for easy gimbal-pin changes.)
   AFTCO’s exclusive attaching clips allow the 2” nylon-web belt to be easily un- clipped at the corners of the plate or at the back of the adjustable belt. This gives the angler or crew 3 easy ways to put the belt on in the heat of the battle. All of the AFTCO Fighting Belts are adjustable to fit waist sizes from 28” to over 50”, and they all float!  There are 3 sizes of AFTCO Fighting Belts. The AFB-1 “Clarion” is designed for 80-130lb tackle, the AFB-2 “Socorro” is designed for 50-80lb tackle and the AFB-3 “Alijos” is designed for 20-50lb tackle.  Also AFTCO ADS-1 adjustable Drop Straps are available for all of the belts; allows any of the AFTCO Fighting Belts to easily be attached to our AFH-1 Maxforce Fighting Harness, for the ultimate stand-up fishing combo!
