The Smitty’s Belt is hand crafted from the finest materials. Due to the outstanding quality and the durability of the Smitty’s Belt, it will last through many seasons of grueling punishment! It may even be the last belt you may ever have to buy!
The 1/8″ aluminum plate is covered with a polyurethane powder coat, which has the highest rating against UV sun rays.
The center insert is made of polyurethane and is virtually indestructible. It is the same material modern skate board wheels are made from. The center should last a lifetime!
The padded backing is closed cell neoprene to give you the ability to fight large fish with comfort as well as control.
Another new gimbaled hand crafted rod belt has passed the test with flying colors as an outstanding and durable “Smitty” fighting belt. This large gimbal plate is designed with a new contoured shape to spread the pressure equally over the thighs and help the rod belt remain centered while the fisherman is moving around the deck. The padded backing gives you the ability to fight large fish with comfort.
(And, these are the best rod belts made, bar none. – Mark)
For those who like to run sustained drag pressure over 40 pounds, we will add extra bracing which will stiffen up the plate while continuing to provide comfort and support.
