Machined from solid stock marine aluminum, extremely durable AFTCO Gimbals, measuring 2-1/4 inches, weigh about half as much as similar brass parts. All exposed edges are polished to prevent deck scarring and to minimize wear on fighting belts. Featured are extra heavy feet, tapered for a snug fit to gimbal pins. The new "radiused" gimbal models feature a full radius machined on the "vertical" slot for greater stability when stand-up fishing with vertical-pin gimbal fighting belts. Available in Silver and Hard-Coat Black anodized finishes, plus anodized designer color finishes — Gold, Shimano® Gold, Green, Ice Blue, Purple, Red and Gray — to match popular colors of metallic rod-winding threads.
