What do you get when you cross a Clackin' Rap with a bib? Correcto! Put your hands together ladies & gentlemen for the 2011 "Rapala Clackin' Crank!"
(D1: somehow I have this feeling the folks at Rapala have run out of creative names for their lures :P)
Jokes aside, this is one of the new 2011 lures hitting our Asian shores sometime towards the end of the year, and from the lucky field testers, the first hand reports coming in indicate these are great for the groupers and estuary dwellers.
You find the first thing that stands out is the metal disc right in the middle of the lure - a similar feature found in the Clackin' Rap. A single stainless steel ball bearing inside the metal chamber gives it a 'clacking' sound as it wiggles through the water when cranked in (hence its name).
