The Deep 4 inch Gaff is made from thick walled E-Glass. This makes Deep Ocean Gaffs lightweight with some flex, and virtually indestructible. The hooks are made with 316 stainless steel, and will not pull out from the shaft. The shaft features 2 Eva Foam handles for added grip, and will also float if dropped overboard. As with all Deep Ocean Gaffs, they are made in the U.S.A.A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.
