Ordered the 5 mtr model to cover all situations. I wanted a grey gaff, but they are on backorder. Had to choose between the red and yellow models in stock. I went with red......

eging squid where abouts do you work? I have sold over 20 of these gaffs and not 1 person has made a bad comment about them. I have used them extensively and they can carry over 1.5kg. I'm sure cedrics picture can back this up too.

Not many people knows that the instant breaking limit for standard gaff head for Auto King Gaff 500 is 2kg and max load limit is 5kg.
Daiichiseiko found that the standard gaff head breaks easily, then they start to make stronger XS gaff head.

g,day all my gaff has been fine no problems caught a couple of larger models no probs.......but with anything they all have a limit to there capacity, around melbourne the majority of squid would be lifted by the gaff without hassle, if you were costantly catching squid 1.5 2kg and up then youd probably want a crane.

the gaff also has metal rings on the first few segments to stop spliting..........i,ve seen cheaper ones but there no qualiy and no rings.

Caught five yesterday morning between 6/7 am also had a monster come up following another squid small one estimation about 30cm hood the other approx 45 cm plus they would come up close to jig but wouldnt touch.........tried all my best jigs no go.....

i agree for the squid we catch the gaff is great. i have both the 3 m and 5 me and never had it break. You watch the japanese videos and they lift some monsters with these gafs. i thing it will depend on the angle you lift up a big squid. typically when you use the gaf you are pulling them up vertically so the weight is distributes okay. Im sure if I tried to lift it up horizontally it may break. by from the pier once you hook the squid you simply pull up..

I said the first segment was pulled out,not break in the middle. because I always pull them up vertically.
