AFTCO Short Pump Long Range fishing gloves are lightweight with short fingers, designed with long range fishing and braided-line fisherman in mind. Index and middle fingers, plus thumb are longer for added protection, and super tough Amortex reinforces the glove from fore finger to thumb for safe handling and super lines. Tacky-Grip palms for added durability, and finger vent holes to help drain water. Spandura backing keeps hands cool and protected, as does the vented, foam-backed mesh cuff, secured with a Velcro closure. Ideal for long stand-up battles with big fish.
