Default Rapala X-RAP Shad??

Anyone played with the X-RAP Shad?

Is it no different than a shad rap, with a fuzzy tail?


I've only got about a zillion shad raps in every color and size made, I just wonder if the new xrap shad has a distincly different handling to it and justify buying a supply.

Thanks

The difference is the neutral buoyancy that x-rap is made for. They are a great crank.

X-rap has a rattle, I believe. Plus regular shad raps are floating baits, X-rap suspend, no?

Do they dive the same depth?

How bout action? tight wobble or more of the slash bait style action of the normal x-rap?

They are...they do

Maybe I am thinking of the wrong lure, but a shad rap to me is this:


And those sink like freaking rocks and have rattles in them.

Are these not the style of the x-rap shad rap??


I looked up pics and this is what came up for x-rap shad raps:


That's a crank bait not a shad rap!!!
