Product Description

The ultimate casting lure for big fish - this is a serious stickbait that's tough enough to go the distance with the meanest saltwater predators. The riptide range features the exclusive Nomad Design Matrix Metal Plate, HD-ABS, Gorilla Through Wire and HD Foam systems on models throughout the range. The floating version has the perfect balance required to achieve that dynamic, strike enducing ‘S’ shaped swimming motion.

Details
Specification

Designed to replicate slender bodied baitfish profiles found on species like pilchards, mullet and sardines, the riptide body shape is highly effective on all predatory bluewater species. The floating and sinking lures have a very different action, and there are a variety of ways to work each lure.

This lure is available in three sizes - 265mm long and 175g, 200mm and 90g and 155mm and 45g. It's tail weighted so with the right gear you can chuck it a long way.

The relatively flat sides and concave scallop along the body adds to the distinctive S-shaped action. This design also creates a distinct body roll at slower retrieve speeds as well as the S shaped swimming action that drives predators crazy.

Purpose built with HD ABS plastic and foam filled, the 2mm machine stamped metal plate the the body then creates the ultimate tough lure. Ideal for GT's, dogtooth tuna and all large tuna species.

The floating version has the perfect balance required to achieve that dynamic, strike enducing ‘S’ shaped swimming motion. A long sweep of the rod tip makes the head duck under with a splash, then as the water flows over the lures body a seductive body roll and ‘S’ wave action is imparted sub-surface. The sinking variety has the internal weights placed to maximize casting but also to allow the lure to be retrieved with a sub-surface walk the dog action, which sees the lure able to turn nearly 180 degrees when retrieved slowly with a walk the dog “twitching” rod tip action.
