Good news for centrifugal braking baitcaster fans! Looks like the upcoming 'red hot' Rapala reel will have centrifugal braking instead of the usual *yawn* magnetic brake cast control system!

The Rapala Triple X-Rap (XXX-Rap) has arrived! Designed to be a tougher, meaner and durable lure with the same holographic extreme slashbait X-Rap finish, the Rapala XXX-Rap is rigged with ultra-tough, premium VMC hooks - ready to tango with hard-fighting tropical fish! The slightly elongated bib allows this tough, extreme slashbait to dive up to 1.5m (5 feet).
Available in 8 colours

Here's a preview of what's hitting stores in the coming weeks... it's a heavy duty X-Rap-like 10cm lure with 6X strong VMC hooks and built to withstand some serious bashing from serious fish. So is it an X-Rap? Not quite...

We've received countless enquires about that mysterious 'red baitcaster' used alongside the Storm Mojo baitcasting rod in the Storm Mojo advertisement.
The good news is that the mysterious 'Rapala Reel' will be unveiled coming in the first quarter of 2014! Apparently it features a 'rigid drive train' support system for more efficient gear meshing, energy transfer and power.
Stay tuned for more info.

These have just arrived on my desk and will be making their way to shops in the coming weeks...
I think they'd be catching anglers first before catching fish! Haha...
Colours: Fire Perch (FP), Parrot (PRT), Goldfish (GF), Golden Alburnus (GALB), Silver Shiner (SS), Baby Bass (BB) & Chartreuse Mackerel (CM)

Man! It sure is a long time since we updated this blog! But you bet we're gonna post more juicy news and catch reports here in the days and weeks to come.
For starters (or re-starters!) we've put the Rapala Scatter Rap series of lures through their paces since their arrival to Southeast Asia. Scatter Rap Countdown, Scatter Rap Crank, Scatter Rap Shad and Scatter Rap Minnow. Do they work on our local species?

I was sure it was a Rainbow Trout! - Scatter Rap Countdown
Pesky little Toman were attracted too!

And there's the Scatter Rap Crank.
Scatter Rap Shad again!

The Temmys lined up one after another for a bite...
... and another!
How about another colour? This time it's the Fire Minnow to show its worth
... and it doesn't disappoint!
What about the Scatter Rap Minnows?
Oh yea! They work too!
Even the smaller ones were fooled by the scatter zig zag action.
So good you could gulp one down!
... well, almost!

Temensis: "I should have guessed that evasive baitfish was a fake!"
The classic Fire Tiger draws them in from a mile away!
And when the water's clear, the natural colours work wonders

Scatter Rap Countdown ALB - Almost Live-Bait ;)
Fred mighty happy with one caught on the Mardi Gras colour! A reason to celebrate!
Then a nice one comes along to take the Scatter Rap Shad
Contrasty colours like Fire Tiger are a must have in the Scatter Rap stable
And of course, the never-failing ol' faithful classic Perch colour! Nice one Yu Hock!
