Slashbait action with Ike’s custom colors? Hold on tight, the fish are going to bite!
Two models of the famed Rapala X-Rap — sizes 8 and 10 — are now available in four brand-new Ike’s Custom Ink color patterns, the brainchild of Michael “Ike” Iaconelli, a Rapala pro and Bassmaster Elite Angler.
The X-Rap is “all about the action,” according to Iaconelli. The versatility of the X-Rap allows an angler to impart a number of fish-catching actions in a single retrieve. What’s more, it casts like a bullet for long, accurate casts.
Productive when fished with an aggressive “Slashbait” technique or with a classic Rapala wobble, the X-Rap gives the angler control of the cadence for maximum effectiveness.
All baits in the X-Rap line are loaded with features from tip to tail, including a textured, translucent body, internal holographic foil, internal long cast system (XR04 excluded), 3D holographic eyes, and flash foil teaser tails. Each is hand-tuned and tank-tested to ensure top-performing action from the start.
The new Marilyn color pattern features a gold back stripe and cheeks that fade into a platinum-gold body.
The River Perch pattern features muted vertical perch stripes over a slightly metallic gold-green-and-orange body with a black back stripe.
The Scoop color pattern features a dark bluish-gray back stripe fading into a bluish-pink pearlescent body with a pink cheek plate and orange belly.
The Slick color pattern features a bright, sky-blue back stripe that fades into a bluish-silver body with a white belly and yellow-orange flash extending back behind the cheeks.
The X-Rap 08 dives 3-to-5 feet, measures 3-1/8 inches long, weighs 1/4th of an ounce and comes equipped with two No. 6 VMC Treble Hooks.
The X-Rap 10 dives 4-to-6 feet, measures 4 inches, weighs 7/16th of an ounce and comes equipped with a No. 4 and No. 5 VMC treble hook.
