    Default Used tree gaffs

    Have 2 sets of tree gaffs that I will likely never use. Hoping someone can use them. No pads or straps are included. Just what you see in the pics.

    First pair are Buckingham steel, permanent 3.5 inch tree gaffs. I've been using them for 13 years, they're used but good condition and should last a lifetime. Good for thick bark.

    Price is 80$ and payment will be made as a donation to The TreeHouse
    Let me know here or by PM.Click image for larger version.

    2nd pair are Spyder Climb Right aluminum tree gaffs.
    These came used in a lot I got on fleabay and I never did anything with them. It looks like there's only 1 set of rigid pads that will fit them. They're pretty dull.

    I had a set of climbrights, couldn't get comfy, went back to bashlins and gecko, but either of those for $80 will see someone right to start off with.

    My first set of spurs were exactly that model of Buckingham. Great set of spurs.

    Spring for a set of caddy pads, and for lower straps make sure to get the two piece with a split ring to mount them, rather than a single strap...you'd be a happy spur climber, imo.

    That's the exact setup I used, Burnham.
    Caddies and straps are now riding on some Bashlin aluminums, and I couldn't be happier

    Yea, Brian turned me on to the angled shin cup pads. Small as a Filipino hostess and fits just as well!
