Nomad Design Maverick 230mm 140g Roughwater (unrigged)
One of the most unique designs for a casting lure, this is a combination of a popper and floating stickbait, and something we have worked on for a long time to perfect with the ultimate balance and action. The cupped head and air chambers going through to the underside of the body have been designed to force bubbles along the side of the body, where they hug the sides of the lure creating a unique rolling swimming action.
It can be worked in a ‘walk the dog’ style, as a swimming stickbait with a wild action, as a popper, or fast across the surface with an erratic action. GTs, Spanish mackeral, kingfish and tuna find this lure irresistible, and coral trout and reef species in the shallows absolutely love the smaller versions.
The 140g/230mm sizes are made with Stainless Steel metal plates and foam filled bodies for the ultimate in strength and durability. The smaller versions come equipped with super strong Stainless Steel through wire construction and still retain the enormous strength of the unique HD ABS body.
The calmwater and roughwater versions have the weights placed at different internal locations to make the lure more suited to either calm or rough conditions. This is simply a guide and the angler can decide which they prefer for a certain scenario or rigging option.
*The Maverick 230mm is supplied unrigged. We recommend using 2 x 11/0 or 12/0 BKK DEEP 6X hooks on the belly, rigged back to back, and a Nomad Inline 11/0 single on the tail. Alternately, a pair of 6/0 BKK GT Rex barbless trebles should be used.
