NOMAD DESIGN OFFSHORE CASTING FLOATING STICK BAIT LURE RIPTIDE 265mm/175g

The Riptide 265mm Floating stickbait is the ultimate big surface stickbait for GTs, Tuna, Kingfish,Cuberra snapper and roosterfish.It floats with a tail down position and has an extremely erratic side to side S shaped action when retrieved with a long sweep of the rod.It can also be fished in a twitched walk the dog style retrieve that produces an enticing side to side action and big body roll. The riptide 265 Floating features a tail weight for extra long casting distance and works equally well in calm or rough water. Featuring a machine-stamped stainless steel plate and full body foam core construction, it is the toughest stickbait available, and is up to any challenge.
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.The sinking riptide 155 and 200 lures literally dance side to side when fished with this retrieve, and this is an action difficult to replicate with any other lure.Extensive testing of the internal weight placement combined with a body shape that can only be made from HD ABS plastic makes the swimming action on the Riptide lures simply unbeatable. The weights in the tail also make casting easy. The super thick stainless-steel metal plate on the 155mm, 200mm and 265mm combined with the foam filled body mean no matter what you do to the Riptide, it will come back asking for more, and is up to the toughest challenge. All Riptide lures are finished with a super tough triple layer clear coat finish, applied by hand during production.

RIPTIDE 265
The riptide 265 feature the exclusive Nomad Design Matrix Metal Plate, HD-ABS and HD Foam systems (265 only).

TECHNOLOGY:

HD ABS SYSTEM
Normal plastic was simply not strong enough for our lures, so we designed a special formula of High Density ABS plastic, which is a white colour, and is ultimately stronger than any other plastic used for lure production. These lures feature a thicker wall construction, meaning ultimate strength and durability.

HD FOAM SYSTEM
High Density Foam System
This is our special system of injecting foam into the lure body, which creates extra strength in the lure body, but also means in the unlikely event of a huge fish puncturing the outer HD ABS plastic body, the lure will still function perfectly and still float and swim with the same great action it was designed with. In areas with mackerel, barracuda, cubera snapper or wahoo, this system means that lure failure is not going to happen
MATRIX METAL PLATE SYSTEM
The ultimate in strength designed for big fish. The Matrix Metal Plate system features a unique design incorporating a stainless steel plate into the body mold of the lure. The plate is incorporated into the lure with a series of small holes at critical locations in the plate, allowing the molded plastic to weave through the metal plate and create the ultimate in strength. The metal plate means you will never lose a massive fish through lure failure, but the matrix system also means ultimate strength between the metal plate and molded body.
