Nomad Design Riptide Floating Stickbait

THE Riptide is a unique Nomad Design creation extensively tested throughout 2014 and the early stages of 2015.

It is a floating stickbait with the perfect balance required to achieve that dynamic, strike-enticing ‘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 lure’s body it creates a seductive body roll and ‘S’ wave action that is imparted subsurface.

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.

A super-thick stainless steel metal plate on the 265mm/170g version combined with the foam-filled body means 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.

It is perfect for light tackle casting with 40-70lb braid for kingfish, tuna or reef species. The Riptide is available in 125mm floating and sinking, 155mm floating and sinking, 200mm floating and sinking and 265mm floating.
