The Riptide is another unique Nomad Designs creation we extensively tested through 2014 and the early stages of 2015. A floating stickbait with 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.
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 simply unbeatable. The weights in the tail also make casting easy. The super thick stainless steel metal plate on the 265mm/170g version combined with the foam filled body mean no matter what you do to the Riptide, it will come back asking for more.
The 155mm/50g version is also equipped with a metal plate but is left without a foam filled body for more colour variation options. Perfect for light tackle casting with 40-70lb braid for kingfish, tunas or reef species.
