Rapala X-Raps are the dream lures of the 21st century. This is where technical innovation meets Rapala fishing smarts to create a lure like nothing that has hit the water before. Rapala X-Raps feature a premium finish that includes prominent scales and lateral line on the fuselage to capture and flash light like a beacon. This Rapala slashbait cuts, darts and slashes its way through the water. Intended for trout and panfish, with an internal long-cast system built in, fishing the X-Raps will get any angler's adrenaline pumping. These are suspending baits, whose natural buoyancy suspends the lure during pauses in the retrieve.

Silver color is different
The color silver shown is not the color that shipped. Looks like Rapala changed the color but it has not been updated - it is now the color seen in the x rap countdown
Without question the best action of any jerkbait I have ever fished! These lures produce bites when few other things can.

I do a lot of spring and fall wading in small rivers and lakes, the Rapala X-Rap has been a great producer. The compact design makes it easy to make long, accurate casts even in windy conditions. Works well as both jerkbait or with a steady retrieve.
Super durable 3rd generation fish catcher - Must have!

Great lure. The durability of this bait is incredible. It's wobbling action is incredible. The different finishes are beautifully done and I suspect provoke strikes by finicky fish. Pike chomp on it and apart from a few surface scratches on the plastic shell it survives bright and ready to go back in the water. The Gold, Purple Gold, Scoop and Silver finishes are excellent colours for northern lakes. My only reservation is the feather tail hook - what's this for? Seems like an unnecessary gimmick. I've been replacing this with an Owner single replacement hook.
When Everything else works, this doesn't.
I am a fan of Rapala original, husky, shad, and DT. I own a lot of Rapala; therefore when these came out I got two (size 8/clown, 10/perch) and my girlfriend got one (8/crawdad). We fish in east TN rivers and lakes and recently took a trip into Canada to a sorta remote lake in Quebec. While in Canada almost everything else in my tackle box worked (it was a low pressured lake), although we had no success with the x-rap. The water being clear, we saw fish look at the lure and do nothing. They may have moved their head, but no action. While there, we also went to a known pike lake and again, nothing. The rivers in TN are stained/muddy and warmer, so a completely different scenario and still no luck for the past year. We are trading these ones in at a local shop.
