The X-Rap is "all about the action" and it triggers strikes. It has the three-dimensional shape of a minnow and is available in three sizes. Prominent scales and the lateral line on the fuselage and the internal holographic foil capture and flash light like a beacon. It's a lure that is designed for aggressive fishing. The angler provides the action and defines the cadence, for maximum effectiveness. The X-Rap has an exaggerated body rolling action on a steady retrieve and it can be fished very slowly if needed. Due to its neutral buoyancy, the X-Rap can be let sit suspended in the water for extended periods to drive even inactive fish nuts.
Thanks to its versatility, X-Rap is the only lure you need all season long.
To get the most out of the X-Raps 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. With your rod tip down, use a short snap, snap, pause retrieve to get the X-Rap to follow a narrow track right. 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 track.
