AFTCO Roller Tops are designed and built to provide consistently flawless performance over a lifetime of fishing, and are recognized as the industry standard for quality and dependability in fishing rod tips. At AFTCO, preventing line wear is our business, and previous testing has proven that line will last 30 to 90 times longer when used with AFTCO roller tops over conventional ring tops. With AFTCO roller tops you save on line costs and fish more successfully because your line stays at its rated strength many times longer, and is far less likely to snap at those moments of greatest stress when fighting a fish. More I.G.F.A. world record game fish have been caught on AFTCO roller fishing rod tips than on any other roller tops. AFTCO roller fishing rod tips are recognized not only for the AFTCO name, but also by their distinctive trademarked shapes, which are so well known that they have been issued trademark registrations by the US Patent and Trademark Office. There are several distinct sizes and types of AFTCO roller tops that match perfectly with AFTCO roller guides. AFTCO roller tops complement a wide spectrum of fishing rod colors and designs with multiple color choices of plated finishes.
