Super Shadow Rap® – Best New Hard Lure at EFTTEX 2018

Opportunistic predators can’t deny the Super Shadow Rap® as it kicks hard to the side, and then slowly fades away into the depths like a dying fish. Its tall body perfectly mimics the silhouette of a big baitfish while the famous Shadow Rap® action dances the Super Shadow Rap® almost on the spot like an easy meal. Twitch it gently for on-the-spot action; or rip it hard to send it gliding into the mouth of a big fish. Fitted with VMC® Coastal Black™ hooks.

  • Durable 2-Part Plastic with Integrated Lip
  • Highly Detailed Finishes
  • Responsive, Tight-Turning
  • Large Predator Gamefish
  • VMC® Coastal Black™ Treble Hooks

 

X-Rap® Peto – Best New Soft Lure at EFTTEX 2018

The Finnish Beast, X-Rap® Peto, combines Rapala’s fish-catching X-Rap® construction with a beautifully color matched soft tail to create a seamless hybrid bait. With its slow sink rate and perfectly horizontal fall, X-Rap® Peto is the ideal choice for cold water & challenging conditions. The tail kicks with a wide action when retrieved; or try a jerk & pause allowing the bait to slowly swim into the depths. The soft tail is firmly secured to the body with a 6-point stainless plate. Spare tail included. Fitted with VMC® Coastal Black hooks.

  • ABS Body with Soft PVC Tail
  • 6-Point Stainless Plate Tail Locking System
  • Wide Tail-Kicking with Body Roll
  • Large Predator Gamefish
  • VMC® Coastal Black™ Treble Hook

X-Rap® Scoop

The hard-bodied X-Rap® Scoop glides horizontally as it descends through the water column towards its inevitable fate. Twitch it to send it darting from side-to-side, or wind it in at a slow/medium pace, feeling the wide-kicking action generated by its unusual shape. Flashy chrome finishes combine with realistic designs & textures to create a sensory overload that fish simply cannot resist. Fitted with VMC® Coastal Black™ hooks.

  • Durable 2-Part Plastic with Internal Weight
  • S-Shaped Body with Convex/Concave Sides
  • Long-Gliding & Wide-Kicking
  • Large Predator Gamefish
  • VMC® Coastal Black™ Treble Hooks
