The Marlin Magic Hibby may be a brand new lure name first introduced in 2021, but there is a lot of history behind this lure. It is the original Captain's Choice head first made back in 2007 and is named after famous Kona fisherman Kevin Hibbard, who assisted with the original design of the lure. Not shocking in the least, this is one of Kevin's absolute favorite lures, particularly after catching a 911# Kona Blue and won some killer prize money at the Big Island Marlin Tournament. While this lure was no longer in production, Kevin smashed his lucky original to pieces which inspired this shape to come back from the dead. It now has a public release and resulted in properly naming the lure after Kevin himself.
This lure is a 14" sized Pear shaped lure head with wide hips and heavy reverse taper right at the skirt saddles and a steady forward taper. It is a shorter nose than the Captain's Choice shape but with a similar forward taper and can almost be considered a chopped off version of the Captain's Choice with some slight subtle differences. It is successful from either Rigger or Corner positions.

This particular head comes in the classic "Superman" color scheme with a triple poured blue back, red stripe, and clear belly resin pour. It has gorgeous classic white Awabi Pearl shell covering the sides of the insert with a rainbow-iridescent wrapped top and bottom of the insert and a set of red eyes. These Superman heads have not been made in quite some time by Marlin Magic.
