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). A Bent butt adapter is available and is essential if using one of these Equalizer sets with a bent butt rod. Alternatively you can use the Twin Pin Pro set which can be used for both a straight butt and a bent butt rod.

“The Black Magic Equalizer gimbal and harness system is without doubt the best on the market. It’s extremely comfortable and significantly reduces strain and fatigue on the angler. One of it’s best features is the fact 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. Another excellent feature is the fact they’re available in different sizes so you can buy the size that fits you” – Dean Linardos (Hooked Up magazine)
“This is the only gear we dare use when fighting everything from monster black marlin to giant bluefin tuna! We travel all-around the world and though we may fish with rods and reels provided by our hosts, we always bring our own Black Magic belts and harnesses” – Captain Andy LoCascio
“The Black Magic Equalizer is simply the best harness and gimbal system out there” – Kevin Power (NZ Bay Fisher Magazine)
