Eastaboga Tackle BogaGrip Fishing Landing, Handling and Weighing Fishing Scale Tool
Size:Up to 60lb
This BogaGrip is Model 260: The scale weighs fish up to 60 pounds in 1/2 pound increments. It is 15 inches long and weighs 1 1/2 pounds.
The BogaGrip is designed to promote “catch and release fishing,” as it will land, handle, and weigh fish quickly and simultaneously without injury to the fish. It is particularly good for handling fish in cold weather, or hard-to-handle fish such as toothy fish, slimy fish, or fish that are likely to fin or cut a fisherman. It also keeps a fisherman’s hand at a safer distance from hooks.
The fish’s weight is checked by reading the point that the main tube’s embossed scale has been pulled down to inside the grip tubing. The fish is released by pulling back on the trigger.
In use, the fisherman will hold the grip sleeve, and using his index finger or thumb will pull back the trigger sleeve, which causes the jaws to open.

All plastic parts are made from acetal, which is a high-performance engineering thermoplastic that is used in unlubricated bearing applications.
