The X-Rap is “all about the action.” It’s the perfect size, shape and 3D illusion of a minnow.
Prominent scales and lateral line on the fuselage capture and flash light like a beacon.
It can be fished both in an aggressive “Slashbait®” technique or with a classic Rapala wobble.
The angler defines the cadence for maximum effectiveness.

How to Fish
To get the most out of the X-Rap Slashbait action, use your rod to give the lure more action. The X-Rap responds well to twitches, snaps and jerks – just vary the length and speed of your rod movement to create different actions from sweeps to aggressive darting.
When fish are extremely active, use the hard “snap” retrieve to really excite them; with your rod tip down, use a short snap-snap-pause retrieve to get the X-Rap to track in a very narrow manner. When fish are suspended over deep water, or to trigger shallow fish; use the “sweep” retrieve. With the rod tip up, use a long sweep-sweep-pause retrieve for a wider tracking action.
You never forget the first time you threw an X-Rap… the slow-rolling flash on a steady retrieve; the way a hard snap or twitch sends it into action. An action so unique it spawned a whole new category – the Slashbait.
Let’s face it; the X-Rap finish can’t be beat! Just the right color patterns, all with internal holographic foils, 3D holographic eyes, internal textured scales and gills. Each X-Rap verifies the utmost in lure design.
Many X-Raps are built for Xtreme casting, with their specially designed internal long-cast system that sends the lure flying off into the distance, landing with pinpoint accuracy and kicking straight into that world class Slashbait swimming action.
Growing to include a vast number of lure families for both freshwater and saltwater applications, there is an X-Rap for any fishing excursion.
