There are many fisheries around the world where a trolling lure that can dive deep without the hindrance of lead or planners is an invaluable tool. But to stand up to the brute force used my Nature’s fiercest predators like wahoo, tuna and grouper, a diving plug has to be built extremely tough. That’s where the Rapala X-Rap Magnum lure comes in. The X-Rap Magnum Series is built Xtra tough to handle these incredible gamefish time and time again.
The X-Rap lure has its own precision diving-lip that planes the lure to specific depths while the lure imparts a tantalizing side to side wobble while emitting a holographic flash to entice vicious strikes. The thru-wire construction and 3X strength VMC hooks and split rings ensure that the X-Rap can handle the fight it has picked.
The X-Rap Magnum comes in incremental models referring to the depth that each is rated for when deployed with 90-feet of line out. If you want to adjust the depth, you can play with the parameters of length of line and diameter of line. Rapala rates these versatile lures up to speeds of 13 knots.
What wahoo could resist that streaking by them.
The X-Rap Magnum 40 is the latest introduction to the series and the deepest diving lure from Rapala to date. This model was introduced at the 2017 ICAST tackle convention in Orlando where it won Best Saltwater Hard Lure.
The X-Rap Magnum series has already won a place in the spread of charter captains and sportsmen all around the world. Capt. Matthew Clifton of Scorpion and El Regalo Sportfishing in Mexico said, “The Rapala X-Rap Magnums are a go to lure for our boats on the East Cape. In addition to being a straight up killer for wahoo, we have caught a wide variety of fish, including tuna, dorado, roosterfish, snapper, grouper and, even, striped marlin. The new X-Rap Magnum 40 gives us the ability to cover even more of the water column with a slightly larger bait. The early results with the Magnum 40 have been impressive.”
