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.
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.
All Riptide lures are finished with a super tough triple layer clear coat finish, applied by hand during production, which makes the paint and finish super tough and durable. All Nomad Design Lures come fitted with the highest quality super strong BKK hooks, chosen to balance perfectly with each lure, and provide exceptional swimming actions and hookup rates for all species. Nomad Design Lures can be fished straight out of the box with confidence.

Hopkins - NO=EQL Tins
Hopkins® No=EQL Lures are favored by serious anglers everywhere. The No=EQL's incredibly fish-catching ability is attributed to their weight and shape which allows the No=EQL to be cast long distances and produces an excellent action on the retrieve. No=EQL Lures are highly productive trolling lures and are equally effective when jigged.
Designed to resemble a shad-type baitfish, the Hopkins Shorty Spoon features a compact profile and thicker body, which combined with its natural swimming action and scale-like hammered finish, produces an irresistible flash. All of their spoons are forged from solid stainless steel stock - not cast or stamped like other spoons. The Shorty is also heavier than conventional spoons of the same length, allowing it to cast much further. Extremely versatile, it's a proven choice for deep water jigging, and even trolling and ice-fishing.
