Makes an Excellent pair to the Aftco Fighting Belt. Built strong and still comfortable with the mesh pad. Fits a wide range of people and easy to adjust so you can share with anglers

A very well made harness that pairs up well with the Socorro belt. Shipping was very fast and I got it in UEA on 4th day.

Looks well made and sturdy. Feels comfortable. Looking forward to using it. Wish it had a quick snap buckle to make it easier to put on more quickly.

These are really comfortable and fit well. Bought 2 in case of two fish at once or the ability to swap out to another fisherman. Quick on and off a real plus. Highly recommend!

What a difference
April 29, 2020
I will never try to fight a 200lbs YFT without this harness. I used it with the Clarion fishing belt and worked really well. If you are a first time user of this harness I recommend to spend few minutes watching the tutorial videos at TD website from Greg Stotesbury from AFTCO explaining how to use this harness, what part of your body will fight the fish, etc.
ProsWell well made. Great quality and the features that this harness carries are thought and design by season anglers. If you go on a trip it is easy to pack. Good price for what are you getting.

First fishing harness I have owned and used, so I can't compare vs. others. What I can say is the build quality is good, its comfortable, was easy to set-up/adjust. Happy with the purchase.

Love this harness. So comfortable, feels like you are one with the rod and reel when strapped up!
ProsVery comfortable
ConsThe strap doesn?t have a buckle so I had to tie a big knot in it and then wrap it around to make it fit. I am size 34 waist and I believe you have to be 40+ waist to use it without rigging it like I did

Not a big fish harness
January 18, 2018
As others have pointed out, the AFCO harness is comfortable and easy to adjust while on a fish, here's the bad news. When on a big fish with heavy drag (35 or more pounds) the adjustment buckle will cut thru the strap that connects to the reel lug. The first time this happened AFCO sent me a new harness which also broke on my next trip while on a tuna that weighed 220lbs. I was using about 35lbs. of drag at the time. The strap material they use is to light for big fish and they use the wrong type of buckle. If your fishing for fish up to 100 lbs. it would probably be fine as well as bill fish if your not using heavy drag. And by the way their new model has no adjustment in the strap. so take it out of the package and try it on before you by.

The Aftco AFH-1 Maxforce harness is very comfortable. The straps are easily adjusted for the best fit. The optional Aftco drop straps allow me to quickly attach the Aftco fishing belt/plate. I also like the safety provided by the handle on the back of the harness.

We do all stand-up fighting. This harness is a dream compared to fighting fish with a belt alone. When combined with a fighting belt it will go a long way to keep your family, friends, and charter customers from injuring their backs. It just makes for more fun on the water for everyone and will let you fight fish all day when you get covered up with 50# class tunas.
