Hobie Report

Two-time Bassmaster Classic Champion Hank Cherry

Two-time Bassmaster Classic Champion Hank Cherry recently teamed-up with Hobie Eyewear to design the ultimate polarized fishing sunglasses.

“Our team has worked very hard over the past few months to bring the Hank Cherry Champions Collection to life and we couldn’t be more excited now that launch day has finally arrived,” says Dylan Coates, senior marketing coordinator for Hobie Eyewear. “When we announced the collection at the Bassmaster Classic back in March, we had the chance to show off the sunglasses to a large audience of highly-engaged fishing consumers and the response couldn’t have been better. The buzz we received from that event allowed us to expand our business into some of the largest online fishing retailers and now that the full collection is available, we’re excited to keep that momentum rolling.”

This groundbreaking signature collection begins with two models, each available with a choice of premium Hobie Polarized nylon lenses designed with Hank’s colors, style and performance expectations in mind. “We chose two floating styles that fit him especially well, matched the highlights and signature to his own branding colors, and incorporated his input in the final design,” noted Coates. “Hank’s been great to work with through the entire process, and the end result is two sets of Champions Collection polarized sunglasses that meet exceedingly high standards at refreshingly reasonable price points.”
