AFTCO Wire Max salt water fishing gloves were designed using the expertise of Capt. Peter B. Wright, world famous big game skipper, author, and IGFA Hall of Fame member. This is the ultimate saltwater fishing glove for leadering big fish. Closed cell EVA foam covered with super tough Armortex® wraps hand and lines palm, fingers and thumb to maximize protection when handling mono, wire or cable leaders. Durable Tacky-Grip palm and Spandura® fourchettes improves dexterity, while foam-backed mesh keeps fingers cool and protected. Wrap-around neoprene strap with Velcro® closure over woven cuff assures a secure fit and repels leader snags.
Another design from the mind of Capt. Charles Perry, the Quick-Release is designed for a wide range of tasks, with four-way stretch material for perfect fit and quick drying, and yet it still has Kevlar reinforcement for protection. The key fingers and thumb are exposed for greater dexterity and a Velcro closure means easy on and off. It’s a great all-around glove for wiring small blue and white marlin, sailfish, tuna, mahimahi and other offshore game fish.
Designed with input from Capt. Charles Perry, one of the best deckhands in the sport-fishing world, the Beast Master gives excellent protection for the “wireman,” the deckhand tasked with grabbing a fistful of leader with a rampaging game fish on the other end. This glove is Kevlar-reinforced, with heavy interior padding to protect the hands from being crushed under intense pressure, while the extra-long cuffs protect the wrists from leader snags. If you’re chasing thousand-pound marlin or giant bluefin tuna, this is a vital part of your inventory!
