I had the privilege to get my hands on one of the Flat Raps, a new lure for 2010 today. Woohoo! My first impressions were: COOL, COOL & COOL!! One look and you'll know that the rolling, flashy action on this was gonna be a killer when twitched. With its flat sides, the flash would be more prominent. Interestingly the small tri-angular bib helps in this area of twitching.
Somehow it does look like a flatter version of the Twitchin' Rap with a bib. But boy, does the chrome look enticing! Here's some specs I got off Rapala's official website. Yet to try it but... just can't wait to hit the water to try it out.
