The DTX 140 is rigged with super strong 5X BKK trebles and is aimed at trolling and casting for mackerel tuna and all offshore pelagics. It is however extremely versatile in that it can be trolled fast offshore, but due to the wider body and bib design, it can also be trolled super slow and deep for big barramundi, black bass, fingermark or even Murray cod. It is an extremely versatile lure and will reach it’s max. diving depth of 8m+ as slow as 2kn, but can also be trolled offshore at up to 10kn.
The DTX Minnow is a revolution in trolling minnows, featuring the Nomad Autotune, Hydrospeed, Diamond Armour 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 always swims straight. The DTX minnow with Autotune will always swim straight, first time and every time, no matter how many fish you catch.
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 towpoint 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 towpoint as close to this “point of not swimming” is what achieves maximum diving depth, but it can only be done with a perfectly centred towpoint. Traditional fixed eyelet trolling lures are unable to position the towpoint this far back on the bib and have to allow room for error in the manufacturing process.
In addition to the Autotune technology, the concealed Hydrospeed belly eyelet allows faster trolling speeds with single hooks, and ensure the lure is balanced with single hooks, so the DTX minnow just keeps swimming straight and true. The additional belly eyelet in front of the Hydrospeed eyelet is designed to be able to fit an assist hook onto when targeting large tuna and marlin.
