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!

Great action regardless of straight retrieve or stop and go with rod sweeps. Suspends perfectly when you let it rest, however I had to replace the rear treble hook and put on one slightly larger and the extra weight adversely effected how it suspends.
