The Ultimo Series are the core of Ripple Fisher’s GT rods.
The series are able to handle a variety of lures from pencil type to popping type lures while having a light, yet very responsive blank for anglers to cast throughout the day.
Although the rod may seem simple with its easy castability and controllability, the butt power is outstanding and we have set an ideal loading point for anglers to be able to maintain their balance with a heavy load. The Ultimo series are a fusion of modern GT fishing combined with Ripple Fisher’s long experience in rod building.
Ultimo & OceanRidge Bending Curve
Ultimo & OceanRidge Load 6kg
Here are the bending curves of the Ultimo series and the Oceanridge series for GT with a static load of 6kg. The Ultimo series are designed for use with diving pencils and diving poppers and depending on the model, it is also great for targeting Tuna and Kingfish. In contrast, the Oceanridge series are designed for use with large mouthed poppers and have a considerably harder feeling compared to the Ultimo series. All models are built to fight 50kg class GT, and although there is no power classification, anglers can choose between different models depending on the style and characteristics of the rods. Anglers who choose the purchase the Oceanridge series will require physical power and weight so please take into consideration the suggested body weight noted on each model.
※Although, all of these models can handle diving poppers or pencil type lures, please pay atention to the tipping strength of the rod when you pull lures as such as poppers with large face cup forcefully. Especially in the appeal which makes the large splash with it, we recommend you to follow the reference on chart above when you choose proper lure. Otherwise, it may result in damage or breakage of tip section of your rod.
Ultimo 80MH Nano is an almighty model with a combination of long length and power. It is a versatile rod able to utilize in any given boat or field with the use of pencil type lures to medium mouth poppers. However, with the somewhat stronger rod settings, the angler needs to be well built or strong. With strength and experience, this rod will respond to the anglers powerful lifting and fight giving you that advantage required for monstrous fish. It is a best matched rod for the GT game which require long casting in shallow waters where anglers are required to take initiative.
