The OceanRidge series are GT rods especially designed with Ripple Fishers’ brand characteristics. The lineup built up for the needs of the expert anglers require manual maneuvering and will bring out the true skills in anglers. These are not your ordinary lineup and will not suit all anglers. But rest assure that these rods will feel like a part of your body once anglers have established their style and skill.
In 2021, we have brushed up and gone back to the drawing board to renew the most powerful rods of the FINAL SPIRIT GT 79 and 80 to release the new GT78. The GT game is becoming tougher and tougher each year and sometimes require the use of supersize lures to induce a bite. The new GT78 is not simply an over powered rod but will become your biggest asset in specific situations and against monstrous GTs.
Ocean Ridge Final Spirit GT78 (Released January 2021) is the most powerful and toughest GT rod Ripple Fisher has ever developed with stiff characteristics in the tip to belly section for easy use with large mouthed poppers and outstanding lifting power in the butt. The blank is highly responsive and once hardcore anglers put his/her full weight behind it, the repulsive force in the blank will efficiently lift the fish. It is an ideal rod for short popping of large mouthed poppers and controlling massive 300mm class pencil type lures when the GTs are feeding on super large baits. It is not a rod that you want to be using all day long, but a rod that you want to bring out in hairy situations with gushing currents and rugged terrain.
