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 .

After falling in love in fishing as a young boy I never looked back. I am grateful to my grandfather for embedding the love and passion for fishing and nature into my life and for all the hours and patience spent fishing with me. The older I get the more I realize how valuable gift that was. Thank You!! My passion for fishing, sports, movement, nature and people led me to become a fitness trainer and to dive deeper into science of human movement, nutrition and health. After getting a long lusted fishing kayak which I was dreaming about for years a whole new world and horizons opened. With a kayak my fishing got a new meaning and is getting to a new higher level. Kayak fishing perfectly conjoined my passion for fishing, movement and exploring, making my bonds with nature and appreciating life beauty to become even more intense. I am looking forward to this journey, and as a father of two I hope I will transfer at least a piece of my love for fishing and nature preservation to them.
