Since its release, anglers have long favoured the original Rapala Shad Rap. The new Shad Rap Elite builds on the Shad Rap's attributes that have been demonstrated in tournament play and elevates this classic.
Maximum durability and casting distance have been achieved by combining premium balsa wood with contemporary high duty construction methods. Rapala's new sophisticated Elite foil finishes and a body form that resembles baitfish found all around the world have combined to create a lure that screams, "Eat me."
The Shad Rap Elite is highly responsive and has an action that varies according on the retrieval speed from a wide wobble to a tight shimmy. Its movement is something that must be seen. Upon retrieval, the Shad Rap Elite comes to life and frequently unleashes vicious attacks. The Shad Rap Elite is a very adaptable lure that effortlessly combines a regular crankbait and a jerkbait and can be cast to a depth of 3 metres.
This lure is ready to use right out of the package thanks to the adhesive, acute Needle Point VMC 75 Series trebles that finish it off.
