True to its name, Lures Rapala X-Rap Haku – haku is Finnish for seek – is seeking trouble and ready to rumble with the big mamas. Built tough for big fish, X-Rap Haku features Rapala’s proprietary 3R System Titanium Release Rig with VMC Coastal Black hooks. When rigged for action, the hooks are positioned just like on a regular glide bait, and the rig rests in the lure’s belly groove, out of the way and protected from weeds and snags. At hook-set, the hook rig will release from the body, allowing a direct contact to the fish and letting the fish have no chance to use the lure as leverage to break free. The rig also makes removing the hooks easier the fish as the body of the lure is not in the way. Jerkbaits Rapala X-Rap Haku can be used for different presentations and it is super easy to use. Gliding action can be created by either twitching with the rod or by using a stop & go retrieve. Twitching the rod will create a faster turning side-to-side action, while a stop & go retrieve allows for longer gliding action. A fast burn in between the stops mimics escaping baitfish.

There’s a reason more fishermen around the world put their faith in the original balsa lure from Finland. Beginning in 1936, the successes of the Original Floater, Magnum and the Shad Rap were followed by other Rapala products that found their way into tackle boxes of anglers around the world. Lures like the Husky Jerk, Fat Rap, Countdown and the new innovative lures like the X-Rap, DT series and the Twitchin’ Rap. It is a legacy of unwavering quality that can be seen in every lure, every fillet knife, every pro-designed tool and every accessory that we make.
