Nomad Design - DTX Minnow 200 (8in)
DTX Minnow Sinking 200 - 8"
DTX Minnow 8" - Dives to 40ft at up to 12kn troll speed and Guaranteed to swim straight thanks to the Patent Pending Autotune system. Super Strong Full wire Construction.
Fitted with 2 x 11/0 Inline Heavy Duty Single Hooks and Super Strong Rings.
The ultimate offshore trolling Minnow. Ideal for wahoo, tuna, mahi mahi, kingfish, yellowtail, striped bass, grouper or big salmon. The DTX 200 can be trolled up to 12kn and will reach a depth of 40ft+. It has a great action trolled as slow as 4kn and will reach 40ft even at slow speeds.
The DTX Minnow is a revolution in trolling minnows, featuring the Nomad Autotune, Hydrospeed, Diamond Armor and Gorilla Through Wire advanced design technology. The Autotune design provides for 2 key features– maximum diving depth, and the ability to ensure the lure swims straight.
The other key feature of the Autotune system is the amazing diving depth that can be achieved. The ability of the system to perfectly centre itself every time on the bib means that the tow-point can be designed to be as far back on the bib as possible, effectively just forwards of the point where the lure becomes unstable and won’t swim. However, having the tow-point as close to this “point of not swimming” is what achieves maximum diving depth, but it can only be done with a perfectly centeredd tow-point using the Autotune system.
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.
For a higher level of performance, the Daiwa Procyon AL spinning reel family is back for the attack whether that means freshwater or inshore applications. From speckled trout, redfish, and snook to bass, walleye, and trout, the Procyon AL offers anglers the perfect reel for the pursuit.
In terms of application, the Procyon AL is available in five sizes from the PCNAL2000D model for freshwater fish to the PCNAL4000D-C, which fits the bill nicely for inshore applications and larger freshwater fish.
The Procyon AL is rich in its feature set. First, the reel series features an aluminum body that allows less body and frame flex providing better support on the gears and bearings allowing increased torque and power while also allowing longer life to the gears. Anglers will find that the aluminum body of the Procyon AL is incredibly lightweight when they pick it up and put it on their favorite rod.
The Procyon AL also features an air rotor engineered to be very rigid, especially at high drag pressures with little flex. The Procyon AL also has generous cut-outs in its engineering design, which reduces the weight of the rotor. The new reels also showcase a tubular air bail that reduces weight and offers more rigidity than standard wire, so you get less flex and bending or breaking. The tubular air bail is also manufactured with thicker material that feels good on the fingers when flipping the bail by hand.
Another element of the series is DIGIGEAR technology, digitally cut to reduce weight, and considerably better gear meshing increase smoothness and gear wear. Anglers will also find Daiwa's distinctive Advanced Tournament Drag (ATD) a benefit for setting the hook and fighting fish. When you set the hook, the reel instantly adds drag resistance, and then as the fish starts pulling drag, the ATD drag curve automatically returns to your prescribed setting.
The Procyon AL family features Long Cast ABS spool as well. The design of the spool's lip allows the line to exit the reel at a much tighter cone-shaped angle, meeting the guide train with less resistance and force, alleviating wind knots and allowing for longer casts.
