Having upgraded to the boga grip has made fishing more enjoyable after the catch. The design works close to effortlessly to open the grip, the no matter what I seem to do it never opens up on me until I want it too. Just last night it help me SIGNIFICANTLY drag a 21 pound stripper 1/2 mile up beach to my truck. I couldn’t ever think of using anything else. Plus the added feature with the scale is such a added bonus. I can weigh every every fish I catch. Cost does seem high until you see the quality and experience using one then you won’t regret. I got the 60lb version and if your fishing off surf I suggest you do same.
Have been using the 30# Boga for years, and it has saved me from getting hooked on many occasions. Hangs in a Flatlander holder, and is a must have for any surf belt, in my opinion. Takes the guesswork out of landing a treble hokked fish. Highly recommend one!
I don’t know why I waited so long to get one of these. So easy to safely and humanely grab the fish, get the hook out, and send it on its way. Nice bonus to be able to weigh it. Built like a tank and the quality is highly apparent, though it’s still pretty light. I’m currently hooking it to my bag with a lanyard until I find a more permanent solution, probably a D-ring and gear keeper in the belt. Buy once, cry once.
Love how fast the sipping was and the quality is amazing!! Amazing grip
