2017 Hamachi XOS GT'n'Doggie

8'2 PE8-13 (80-130LB)


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 80lb right the way through to 130lb 

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

  1. A true GT punisher 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2017

    I was a little skeptic at first with a 3 piece rod! However the XOS stood up to the challenge and deliver every time as promised! The rod bends consistently throughout the length of the rod all the way to the grip while consistantly distributing the “fighting force” through the length of the rod. The rod has true backbone but feels light, nimble and has unbelievable flex for both casting and fighting big fish.
    All of the above along with the lifetime warranty makes this a very difficult rod to beat and I would highly reccomend it to all anglers, novice and expert!!

  2. HAMACHI XOS GT'n'Doggie - best GT popping rods ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2017

    I read the reviews on few different forums, eBay and various articles including www.TheTackleGuru.com comparison to Smith, RippleFisher and Carpenter (the usual suspects at this end of the market).

    I had to get one, it is sweet !! have nailed big sharks to tuna with it

    And 10' version is also awesome, used a mates a couple of times from the rocks and its was brilliant for tossing lures, baits and ballooning, its the next rod on my shopping list -

    if your thinking of getting a Hamachi Doggie just do it you wont be sorry
