Black Magic Equalizer Set (Gimbal, Harness, Carry Bag)

$334.99$355.00

The Black Magic Equalizer Gimbal and harness system is extremely comfortable and significantly reduces strain and fatigue on the angler. The angler can comfortably wear the belt without having to wear the gimbal so the angler is ready for the fish to strike and the crew can easily place the gimbal on at the beginning of the fight.

Sizes

Not sure what set is right for you?

  • The size of the harness would depend on the physical size of the person wearing it. Our standard harness (683mm wide) would fit an average size person while the small harness (555mm wide) would suit a smaller person. We also have an XL wide harness (835mm wide) for the larger person.
  • The size of the gimbal is a personal preference depending on the stance of the angler; those with a wider stance prefer the XL wide gimbal (485mm wide) while those with a narrower stance prefer the standard (440mm wide).

Specifications

Gimbal – The gimbal is padded with special materials utilising sports medicine technology to give you more comfort and better blood circulation during those long fights. The padding is similar in construction to that used in the manufacturing of rugby headgear. You will be amazed at the extra pressure you can apply, 30 pounds over the rod tip is as easy as pulling 20 pounds with other systems.

  • The unique design features eliminate sideways movement of the gimbal when under load, especially in sloppy seas.
  • Your body weight is used to maximum advantage because the recessed gimbal pin is positioned low down and further back than other systems.
  • Wear the unique webbing belt all day, when the big strike comes, the gimbal slips on in seconds.

Harness – Moulded and contoured padded componentry gives you a stronger yet lighter and less bulky harness. Unlike conventional kidney harnesses the Black Magic Equalizer divides the strain between the upper thigh/buttocks area and the lower back using innovative twin element padded supports.

  • The free running lug clips allow the load to be distributed evenly between the two elements of the harness.
  • By having the angle of pull lower on the angler, the pressure applied to the reel lugs is increased by up to 50% without any extra effort.

 

Technique

Posture
This is the correct posture to take when fish is taking line from your reel.

Note: Knees slightly bent, feet apart. Back is arched so body weight is supported correctly by the harness. Arms should have little strain, as the harness takes all the load, leaving your hands free.

Technique
This is the correct technique to lift your fish & gain line once your fish has stopped taking line.

Note: Knees are bent more than illustration 1. Back is still arched and supported by the harness but the load is increased on the harness by effectively ‘sitting’ in it. As you sit in the harness & transfer weight, your rod will lift the fish.

The Grind
Rod is at its heightened position and is loaded to its full potential. Once you have lifted the fish, wind on line while you lower your rod and then repeat. At all stages you should have the rod slightly bent, thus keeping a constant pressure on the fish.
