Reeled in several with and without this belt. This is a very viable solution and fits most rods. Really saved me from brusing my waistline from trips without it. Recommended for landing tough fighting fish under 100 lbs.

This belt proved to make fishing awesome!! The first two days I struggled with where to put the rod and ended up with a horrible bruise. Then was loaned the belt and it was a completely different fishing experience. 5 days of fishing and the last three were awesome. I am ready to go back, but not without the belt.

Great BANG for your buck! This belt is priced very well. I wanted a fighting belt to prevent bruising caused by the rod handle when fighting sturgeon on the Snake River. This belt did the trick. The fighting belt is easy to take on/off so you do not always have to keep it on. The opening in the gimbal is large enough for most large rod handles even if they have a slight flare at the end. Other gimbals I have used required trimming the flare off of the rod handle. Another reviewer mentioned that the belt size is on the large size and it is, but the guys I fish with were able to adjust the belt to nearly the smallest size and it fit our waists ranging from 34" to 38". The gimbal also pivots which allows you to raise and lower the rod while taking up the line. There may be better fighting belts out there, but you will pay much more for them.
