• AFTCO Rod Butts have revolutionized offshore fishing tackle, and were the first one-piece, swaged aluminum rod butts widely used on offshore trolling rods. AFTCO Unibutts, Storabutts and Extend-a-Butts are "unitized" for maximum strength. They are constructed to provide perfect alignment of all the machined aluminum components which are press-fit and epoxied in place. All AFTCO fishing rod butts are swaged and machined to create a high strength-to-weight ratio never before seen in offshore fishing rod handles. AFTCO is the industry standard in rod butts that are specifically designed for the finest offshore fishing tackle in the world.
