Why Boga Grip
The Boga Grip is an extremely useful fishing tool made 100 percent in the USA. It is great for landing, handling and weighing fish of all kinds. It handles fish by encompassing the fish’s lower jawbone and works on most species of fish. The Boga Grip features easy, one-hand operation and will accurately weigh fish. The Boga Grip is very saltwater resistant.
Boga Grip Advantages
The Boga Grip is designed to promote “catch and release fishing,” as it will land, handle, and weigh fish quickly and simultaneously without injury to the fish. The Boga Grip also affords an easy opportunity to inspect and take pictures of the fish. Since it doesn’t wipe off the protective slime nor puncture the fish, and allows the fish to be quickly returned to the water, fish that are handled and released using the Boga Grip should be more likely to survive. The Boga Grip 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.Boga Grip Design
The BogaGrip is generally tube shaped, with one end serving as the grip and scales, and the other end with a pair of jaws. It has a trigger sleeve that slides along the main tube, serving as an opening and closing means as well as a lock. The grip consists of a sleeve tube covered with a non-slip grip. The grip sleeve slides over the main tube and is linked to it through the scale spring. The main tube has a precision scale embossed in it to match each individual scale spring, and the scale is calibrated using certified weights to insure accuracy within one increment. You can send your BogaGrip to IGFA (954-927-2628 Dania Beach, FL) where they can certify it for world-record catches.Boga Grip Materials
The BogaGrip is made in the USA of USA-made materials. All metal parts of the BogaGrip are made of 300 series stainless steel, except for the precision scale spring, which is 17-7 PH stainless steel. All plastic parts are made from acetal, which is a high-performance engineering thermoplastic that is used in unlubricated bearing applications. Acetal is tough and resilient and is very resistant to UV light. Constructing the BogaGrip of these materials makes it very strong and resistant to conditions encountered while fishing in fresh or saltwater.Different Models Explained
