POP Fishing & Marine is the exclusive worldwide distributor of the Hamaguchi Hybrid Greenstick – the next generation of the original Greenstick, from the same ORIGINAL manufacturer in Japan. Don't be fooled by the imitators, this is the real thing. The new Hamaguchi Hybrid is an evolution from the all fiberglass model. This new carbon-fiber / composite stick is stronger and more consistent than its predecessor. The hybrid greenstick still emphasizes what the original sticks were famous for – a combination of strength and balance all leading to one thing, catching more fish.
There are now two models, the STANDARD (CS) greenstick resembles the original design in dimension. It comes in 4 sizes, 24', 32', 40' and 46' and made for larger vessels. The new Kona Stick (CL) is a slimmer and lighter version of the standard CS designed for smaller vessels or large vessels that have higher mounting options. The CL has two sizes 24’ and 32'. Both models come as interlocking modular sections allowing for various mounting and upgrading options.
Our unique relationship with the Hamaguchi Company has resulted in many enjoyable research and development excursions in the fish-rich waters of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. The worldwide guru of stick fishing, Yukinobu Shibata, works closely with us as we continue to learn, refine and improve techniques on the hottest fishing system in the market today. We have collected scores of data from both the consumer and manufacturer to gain what we feel is an unrivaled understanding of this highly successful fishing style.
