Key features

  • As the name suggests, the Twin Pin Pro has two pins, one in the traditional recessed position, and a new pin in the front of the rod bucket. Now, anglers have maximum leverage whether using a straight butt or a bent butt rod, without the need for an adaptor.
  • The lightweight harness/webbing can be worn all day, then simply slip on the gimbal in seconds when the fish strikes.
  • Padded with a special material utilising sports medicine technology to give you more comfort and better blood circulation during long fights. The padding is similar in construction to that used in the manufacture 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 eliminates sideways movement of the gimbal when under load, especially in sloppy seas. 
  • Your body weight is used to maximum advantage because the patented recessed gimbal pin is positioned low down and further back than other systems. 
  • Designed and manufactured in New Zealand using the best materials available. 
  • Moulded and contoured padded componentry give you a stronger yet lighter and less bulky harness. 
  • 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.
  • All sets include: gimbal, webbing belt / drop straps, harness, free carry bag and an instructional ‘how to use’ pamphlet and links to online videos

“If there is a mix of butt types in the boat’s spread, anglers can now have maximum leverage whether using a straight butt or a bent butt rod, without the need to change harnesses. Simply drop the gimble nock onto the appropriate pin for the style of rod and then fish without restrictions. No penalty.” – Sam Mossman (New Zealand Fishing News)

Getting the most from your Equalizer® Twin Pin Pro


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.


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.
