New Proven Custom Colors Will Trigger Big Bites When Using the Rapala® Slab Rap® or the Rippin’ Rap®
Imagine creating a slew of new unique colors that will trigger endless bites. Well, imagine no more, because the Rapala® Slab Rap® is now available in four new proven custom colors.
A lipless crankbait with a sleek, streamlined profile and a finesse-style fall, the Slab Rap is now available in the following four proven custom colors.
Fruit PunchBlack-purple back, pink-orange belly, chartreuse head with pink sides featuring four thick, black baitfish ovals.
Glow Pink SquirrelWhite back, white belly, cotton-candy pink tail and head, and white sides featuring four black baitfish spots.
Glow Slimy LimeChartreuse back and belly, day-glow-green head and throat, and chartreuse sides featuring four large, black baitfish spots.
HeadspinChartreuse back, purple belly, pink head, and chartreuse sides featuring seven vertical, black baitfish stripes.
Even the biggest, baddest gamefish will sometimes feed more on fry and young-of-year baitfish than larger, mature minnows. So matching the hatch in such times often means scaling down from a larger lipless crankbait, like a Rippin' Rap, to a smaller Ultra Light Rippin' Rap® or Slab Rap®.
Ultra Light Rippin' Raps are essentially smaller (sizes No. 3 & No. 4) Rippin' Raps. And like their No. 5-7 big brothers, it flutters on the drop with a hard-vibrating action accented by a loud, distinctive BB rattle system. Slab Raps, on the other hand, are designed with a bit different lipless look. They feature a sleek, streamlined profile and fall with a less aggressive, finesse-style flutter.
Ultra Light Rippin' Raps fall much faster than Slab Raps. They often work best when fish are fired up and feeding actively. But fish frustrated by a cold front or unseasonably cool water temps will often react better to a Slab Rap.
A 2-inch Slab Rap weighs 1/4 oz. The 1-½ inch model weighs 1/8 oz. Including the four new offerings, they're available in 14 total color patterns. Slab Raps feature super sharp VMC® Black Nickel Round Bend Hooks.
A No. 3 Ultra Light Rippin' Rap weighs 1/16 oz. and measures 1-1/8 inch. A No. 4 measures 1-½ inch and weighs 3/16 oz. Ultra Light Rippin' Raps feature super sharp VMC® Black Nickel Round Bend Hooks.
