The AISI 316 marine stainless steel alloyed with molybdenum gives our gaffs an unmatched resistance to salt water corrosion and prevents the appearance of the dreaded rust pitting that occurs over time in other types of steels.
In addition, the cold bending system that we carry out in our production process gives it extra resistance, since it avoids the loss of temper and the evaporation of the chromium and nickel present in our steel, which are essential for the correct conservation of the hook as it passes of the years.
The anchoring system to the pole by means of a tube is considered the best since it prevents fractures in the wood from occurring, in addition to protecting it from the typical blows of fish fighting, which over time end up damaging the handle and they tend to break.
One of the weak points of the hooks is usually the welding of the rod to the tube since it opens and causes problems over time. In our case we have made a solid weld that makes it totally impossible for the hook to release from the tube.
All our hooks are bent at an angle of 180 degrees, which gives them great resistance to a vertical weight, being superior to the hooks bent at other angles and therefore it is more difficult for a heavy weight catch to bend the hooks.
The double tip is the one that contributes an extra in the effectiveness of the dunks since it is easier to hit with at least one of the tips. It also allows to better immobilize the catch when being nailed by two points and makes us more comfortable to raise the fish to the boat. It is also the most used point in the capture of cephalopods such as squid, potas, octopus or cuttlefish.
Double 8mm gaffs are recommended for catches up to 60kg.
Made by hand in Spain.
Bright polished steel.
Total height: 13.5 cm.
Point height: 7.5 cm.
Opening: 6 cm.
Tube height: 6.5 cm.

* The measurements may vary slightly since the hooks are made by hand.
The stainless steel tube for the handle can be chosen from the following measurements:
Tube Outside diameter Inside diameter
#1 25mm 22mm
#2 28mm 25mm
#3 33mm 30mm
* The choice of tube must be made at the time of ordering in the “Order notes” section, right at the end of filling in the personal data. In case the client does not choose any tube, a hook will be sent with a # 1 tube.
* The manufacturing time of the boat hook will be 3 days from the receipt of the order.
Includes screw, nut and two M4 size A4 quality stainless steel washers.
The hook is shipped without the handle because the shipping cost would be very high and you can get a quality pole for a very low cost at any hardware or carpentry store.
Warranty: 50 years.
