Rapala's 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.

I bought this Lure in the gold color and size 10 in the middle of December. On my third cast I used a slow steady retrive and began to panic as I thought I had snagged the lure on the bottom. Oh! however was I wrong, about 4 minutes later I was holding a 7lb 6oz Largemouth in my hands. Next cast, 5lb's, and it kept on going all day... Love it!

I've used this lure extensively. In freshwater, I've caught a ton of big bass on it. I've even had panfish hit them from time to time! In saltwater, it's caught alot of trout, redfish, bluefish, jacks, and ladyfish. Its eratic action really draws alot of reaction strikes. They have also proven to be very tough. I mostly use the size 08 in saltwater and size 10 in freshwater. I prefer the black top, silver body ones.

I use these in the winter in downtown Providence. They have worked amazing. However, when i hooked up to this monster, the plastic split and ruined the whole lure. However, they are supposed to be used in freshwater. But they work so good that ill keep buying them. I catch fish when others are not, even in the middle of the winter in 20 degree temps, when my guides are freezing up. Overall, 2 thumbs up!

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).
