2017 Hamachi XOS GT'n'Doggie

8'2 PE6-10 (50-100LB)


New in for 2017, is Hamachi's latest version of the hugely popular XOS GT'n'Doggie 

The new Expedition series are a 3 piece popping, plug and stick bait rod, which packs down to 94cm (3') with insane casting distance, mind blowing power and worldwide lifetime warranty!!

Capable of casting big poppers an incredible distance , if you chase Volkswagon size GT's , jumbo red bass,  monster Dogtooth or Bluefin Tuna, then Hamachi's 2017 XOS GT'n'Doggie Expedition rods are what you need. 

Hands down these are the best popping rod we have ever used, at 8'2 they blow the competition away for casting distance with big poppers, the tip has the perfect action for twitching blooping and get the best of poppers and stick baits and the latest taper combined with the best in nano materials ensures the pressure is transferred to fighting the fish and not the angler. Put simply we can put more fish stopping pressure on with one of these than many very popular high leverage jig sticks !!

These are an amazing set up with a 7500 - 30000 size reel, these fish beautifully with 50lb right the way through to 100lb 

The first shipment of these sold out before they landed, these are one of the finest Japanese popper rods available

    Fantastic rod used on tropics expedition

    Posted by Reef Hunter on 6th Nov 2021

    Great rod, really came into its own on the days when the fishing was slow. My buddy was using Shimano rod and would barely last the morning of constant popper throwing. Can't beat an XOS GTnDoggie. Not sure how to add a photo my best fish for the trip was 38kg GT
