[Tech] Hippo Grip
The Hippo Grip is a unique reel-clamp design that serves triple duty when fishing offshore. This heavy-duty, forged aluminum reel clamp securely supports your reel to the rod for maximum safety. This clamp also incorporates a small hole that was designed to be used with a safety line for trolling. On the rear of the clamp is a large diameter hole that was designed to be used as a trigger. The large hole should be mounted facing the butt of the rod.
