The Rapala® adrenaline-pumping X-Rap® slashbait has Xtreme attitude with its hard-cutting, aggressive darting action. The integrated long-casting system partners with an irresistible rattle and classic Rapala action. X-Rap suspends and comes to a roll at rest to trigger the bite. The X-Rap is ''all about the action'' and it ''triggers'' strikes. It's the perfect size, shape and 3-D dimension of a minnow. Prominent scales and lateral line on the fuselage capture and flash light like a beacon.
Rapala is the best lure company around. This lure just flat out catches fish. My five year old catches bass with the clown color almost evrytime we go fishing. Great job Rapala worth every penny !!!!!

i got this lure looking for a lure that would catch fish and last. it was good for only one of those. i was using it and i hooked a small bass but it threw the hook, keep in mind this is the second time i used it. i then let it pause for a second and it started to sink. i reeled it in and pulled it in front of me and i saw a crack. i thought it was just the paint so i picked it up and twisted it around and it was an actual crack! it had filled up with water and was broken. i am taking it back to bass pro and will try to get an instore refund!

I bought the size 12 in the 02 color. This Lure is great for pike in march and early bass before the grass comes up. When you twitch it it rolls on its side and you can see the orange flash of light come off the lure. It is phenominal!

Almost all of the colors will work. The trick is to buy several different colors and try them all each time you fish. You will find certain color(s) work in a particular river / lake, while other colors work best in another river / lake. I also find certain colors work better depending on the river conditions and the skies (sunny vs. overcast, etc). By the way, size is also very important. This 28" steelhead was caught on the smallest size (1/16th oz.) X-Rap!! (Feathers removed).
For salmon, it all depends on the type of bugs/fish that it is feeding on at certain times of day. If they are feeding on small trout, buy the pattern that resembles small trout. If they are feeding on minnows, choose the pattern that looks the most like baitfish in your area. The color and size of baitfish changes lightly from lake-to-lake, so pick the one that resembles these closest to what are in your area. but like i said it all depends on what there feeding on at that time. one way to find out is to grab a small one and pump its stomache. it sounds crues, but it does no harm to the fish.
I have caught salmon on the Hot Head and pink colors of Rapala X-Raps. They seem to like the tail feather on the back hook a lot. I have a lot of different colors of X-Raps so what I did was put orange tail feather hooks on the X-Raps I use for salmon since spawn is orange. It works great in the Grand River, Muskegon River, and Manistee Rivers in Michigan.
How does the X-rap compare to the Bomber Pro Suspending Long A? I'm asking because the Long A is considerably cheaper ($3+ cheaper) and reviews are just as positive as reviews on the X-rap. Both of these plugs dive about the same depth but the 3 1/2 inch suspending Long A is an 1/8 oz heavier. Would the suspending Long A be a better search bait from shore? Which has better castability?
I fish from the shore to, and i can tell you that they both cast just fine on small to medium sized ponds and lakes from the shore. the was that the X-RAP is designed is its bb's(what makes it rattle) are allowed to slide to the back of the bait, so therefore more casting distance per oz. If I were you, I would purchase them both and see what you think of either one. they are both excellent baits for searching, just don't rely on them to catch all of your fish on a trip. I can tell you that the X-RAP will get alot of follows, and as long as you can see those, after you find 'em take a zoom super fluke and move it really slow over the area in which you see the fish coming from, as long as its 10 ft. or less, and this should hopefully create a nice hard strike Hope this helps
i was fishing with it today, my second day using it, and it was sinking. i picked it up to notice that it was ready to break in half so i stopped using it. there is a large crack running almost all around it. i spent almost 10 dollars on it so i was wondering if there was a way to fix it. if you dont know how would you be able to tell me if bass pro will give me another or list a more durable bait. thank you!
BASS PRO HAS ALWAYS STOOD BEHIND ANYTHING I HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH. CHECK WITH THEM. I HAVE USED THEM FOR YEARS. YOU JUST GOT A DEFECTIVE BAIT. I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH ANY OF THEM I HAVE USED. DON'T LET THIS BAD ONE STOP YOU FROM GETTING ANOTHER. BEST BAIT EVER.
Well, i don't think that bass pro will give you a new one, but they might. It is a durable bait, so you probably casted it into something hard (such as a rock face) and that could easily crack it. try to cast it more along the shoreline instead of twords it.
Normally those X-Raps can handle a lot of stress unless they hit something really hard so it must have been a rare one that was weak for some reason. I do extremely well on both the freshwater X-Raps & saltwater X-Raps for largemouth, smallmouth, and pike in lakes & rivers in Michigan. Call Bass Pro and they are very nice about helping people. Saltwater X-Raps should be tougher and not seen by fish as often if you wanted to look them up and replace it with one of them, or get a regular X-Rap in your favorite color. I have about 40 X-Raps between fresh & saltwater in 4 sizes and 6 colors that work well anywhere I go fishing.
