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 inducing ‘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.

Riptide 115
Inshore walk the dog

The Riptide 95 & 115 “Fatso” is a wider body version of the renowned Riptide design. It has been made as the ultimate surface walk the dog lure. It features an internal rattle, and is perfectly balanced for long distance casting. When twitched and walked in a side to side action, the lure can flick 180 degrees, from side to side, and can even be made to turn backwards on itself. It can be worked aggressively or can be worked in a very subtle and slow manner with just minor twitches of the rod tip and a subtle splash. However you work it, the Riptide Fatso is a fish catching weapon.
