Rapala and soft lures? Yes, breakthrough finally happened .Does introducing their first soft/hybrid bait in Rapala’s lure assortment means they are planning to get into softbait lure market? I don’t know but I am glad it’s happening and hope more of them coming.
Rapala’s latest lure that hit the market is Rapala X-Rap Peto
Rapala X-Rap Peto
It combines Rapala’s proven, fish caching X-Rap® construction and adds 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.
Thanks to combining best of both worlds (hardbaits and softbaits) X-Rap Peto produces rolling side to side action and gives strong tail kicking action even at slowest presentations. Slow sinking rate makes it perfect for very slow presentations in shallow water.
The soft tail is firmly secured to the body with a 6-point stainless plate and easily exchangeable. Spare tail included. Lure is equipped with 2x VMC® Coastal Black™ treble hooks.
X-Rap Peto comes in 20 cm size and weight 83g, equipped with 2 Coastal Black no2/0 VMC treble hooks and is available in 15 beautiful colors .
