Default ISO - long kingfish gaff

I am interested in a longer, maybe carbon fiber gaff. I see them up to 12' long.

Anyone have one they want to part with or suggestions on where to find a good one?

I know Marsh Tacky has a good one but is there anyone else?

Thanks!

Aftco did make a 2 piece one in aluminum. It's worked great for me.

Jim...get in touch with Tim Barefoot...he use to make a 12' 2 piece that was one of the best 12' gaffs I've handled... I spoke with him a few weeks before you and I did the BR and got a few of those large chin weights for pulling bonita from him...he said he may have a few hanging around...but I never did get back with him to see, I had that bamboo gaff made and didn't think much more about a 12"...if he has a few lying around I would take one too...

Hay man, I actually went ahead and ordered one today from Wes at Marsh Tacky. I have a gaff from him now and really like it. I just was looking for other options out here. Last weekend we didn't have a huge fish but just could not get on top of her before she came unbuttoned.
Kind of like the chap stick balloon... just seemed to be a little out of reach... haha. And I know.. I owe you some Blantons… haha

Default 8 foot 2.5” gaff

I have an aluminum 8 foot gaff and 2.5” hook and could part with it. Flawless condition and only used once. Anyone need it for a reasonable price? Color is silver and can send pics if there is interest.
