Stainless Steel Commerical Fishing Gear by Asano

 

Days are dwindling for the habit of splicing and knotting rope or cable in fishing, sailing or any other rigging applications. Although it is unforeseeable that knots and splicing will ever go away completely, the introduction of quick release couplers, wide mouth double shackles, and auto shackles are making traditional methods of attaching rigging less desirable.

 

Rigging components available to the mariner have also come along way from iron, traditional pieces of wood and manila rope with steel being a strong economical replacement and is still a strong contender even with the introduction of stainless-steel. In search of heavy duty rigging components for a picking boom seine block, vang block, or a topping block, fishermen borrowed from land-based industries such as logging, mining, and construction.

 

Steel rigging components such as a seine block, a rigging block, or a topping block found their way onboard from land-based industries such as logging, mining, and other heavy material handling industries and therefore where functional but lacked the finesse such as rounded edges, non-protruding pins, hardware that is gentler to synthetic rope that is required and appreciated in fishing and sailing. This all changed when industry started manufacturing rigging hardware specifically tailored for the maritime environment especially the commercial fishing industry and sailing fraternity.

 

A good example of this and a leader in the field is Asano. Asano Metal Industry, is a stainless-steel commerical fishing equipment manufacturer located in Japan, which excels at planning and developing highly specialized products such as fishing hardware and blocks, has a history spanning over 70 years. Asano has taken what used to be a working crude pieces of hardware and produced a functional piece of jewelry that not only look elegant but perform exceptionally well.

 

Asano's impressive portfolio of stainless products is second to none and the quality of the stainless is top notch. ASANO’s stainless-steel blocks such as a picking boom block, a heavy-duty bearing block, or a stainless seine block are all developed using their long-standing experience and proven expertise to meet professional needs and is used in oceans and seas around the world. These products feature great attention to detail, designed to minimize damage and wear on other gear like ropes and nets.

 

The same attention to detail, quality and functionality is casted into Asano's line of shackles and is evident in their purse lineup such as the purse line release the pressed flat ring, ballbearing swivel, or the purse coupling. Asano’s quick release couplers, wide mouth double shackles, and auto shackles offer solutions for all your point to point connections: line to hardware , hardware to hardware or line to line.

 

The company also produces accessories all in stainless such as fids and other splicing tools together with lighter stainless products such as blocks, shackles, and snatch blocks commonly used on sailing vessels.

 

We are happy to work with Asano designing new hardware for our customers. Fishing is not all about shiny hardware, but it would not be near as much fun if it were not for the abundance of rope and twine needed for hauling, making, and mending nets, line for winches or simply tying up the boat for the night. So, whether purchasing, repairing, or maintaining the fishing equipment for any type of fishing, be it purse seining, longlining, crabbing, or gillnetting, rest assured Go2Marine has the items you need, in stock, ready to ship at prices that will not break the budget.
