NOMAD DESIGN Saltwater Trolling And Casting Floating Lure DTX MINNOW 140
The DTX Minnow is a revolution in trolling minnows, featuring the Nomad Autotune, Hydrospeed and Gorilla Through Wire advanced design technology.
The DTX minnow is in a class of its own, DTX stands for Dogtooth Extreme. And this lure is capable of enticing and standing up to the toughest fish in the ocean. The unique body shape design creates a distressed baitfish swimming action, and the Nomad Designed Autotune tow point and bib system means this lure just keeps swimming deep, straight and true, first time every time, no matter how many bites it has had. The concealed Hydrospeed belly eyelet allows faster trolling speeds than conventional towpoints, so the DTX minnow just keeps swimming straight and true.
The DTX 140mm minnow can be trolled at up to 11kn and dives to 8.5m + when trolled at 6-8kn. The DTX minnow is rigged with our purpose designed inline single hooks. Ideal for Tuna, marlin,wahoo, mackerel, mahi mahi and every other predatory fish in the ocean, the DTX minnow is your first choice in bluewater trolling lures.
HD ABS SYSTEM
Normal plastic was simply not strong enough for our lures, so we designed a special formula of High Density ABS plastic, which is a white colour, and is ultimately stronger than any other plastic used for lure production. These lures feature a thicker wall construction, meaning ultimate strength and durability.
AUTOTUNE BIB SYSTEM
The Autotune Bib system allows the lure to self tune, and adjust to changes in the lure shape from fish hitting it, or other problems that often cause lures to need tuning in order to swim straight. The flexible and moveable towpoint means that the lure is always trolled from the perfect centre line of the lure, meaning perfect balance and straight swimming always. There is no longer a need to be tweaking the tow point and bending eyelets sideways and testing the lure to make it swim, just deploy and start catching fish!
HYDROSPEED BELLY EYELET
The unique Hydropseed belly eyelet has been hydrodynamically tested and designed designed to allow maximum trolling speed, and also provide the optimum hookup ratio when using single hooks in large trolling lures. The concealed towpoint allows the lure to be trolled much faster than a conventional lure with an exposed belly eyelet. The additional trolling speed and increased hookup rate make the DTX minnow with Hydrospeed technology a must have trolling lure for any bluewater application.
This is a special internal design process we have implemented for use with clear ABS plastic bodies, where we want colours that are see through, or where using the HD ABS plastic is not required. The internal diamond mesh grid pattern creates an internal framework to strengthen the body of the lure, making it far less likely to be crushed or cracked by large predators. The internal Diamond grid pattern ensure ultimate strength in all applications.
GORILLA TROUGH WIRE
This through wire system has the wire bend around a set of extra plastic supports internally, making the wire less likely to separate from the lure body, and ensuring ultimate strength. The Through wire is also welded at both ends to ensure you never lose that big fish.
All Nomad Design Lures come rigged with high quality BKK hooks, and super heavy duty split rings. The hooks are perfectly matched to the lure so they swim with the perfect action straight out of the box.
