Will definitely be getting the shallow one. Looks pretty cool.

They did a great job with the layout on that.

The countdown definitely looks interesting to me.

I had one, and it didn't really do a whole lot for me.. It could be my area, but I didn't prefer it to my other regular cranks. That's just me.

One of my few confidence crank baits. I have the shallow in smash, penguin and baby bass and they work wonders, I like to crank em somewhat fast then pause around cover or once I bump something, good action along with durability.

I picked up one on a previous order. I watched the product video and though what the heck. I have yet to user it, so would love insight from others.

Scatter Raps have been out for a couple of years or am I missing something. Anyway I picked up some when they first came out and did well with them. You can't really burn them or they will roll. The best method I have found is slow and fast enough to make them scatter then slow. Also they are really light so I throw them n spinning gear. I did not throw them last year and not sure why because they worked for me the previous year. I have not fished the deep cranks only the shallow and count downs. Hope this helps.

these are different versions.  the new ones are shallow and deep.  they had some other scatter raps that were similar but i am most wanting to try that deep one myself.

The Lindner's fishing show this week was dedicated to the Scatter Rap cranks. Interesting, but hardly anything new. I think "Lazy Ike", or one of the older plug manufacturers, had such an offering back in the 80's.

I like the action of these lures. I'm hoping LC and Megabass can come up with similar cranks without violating Rapala's patent.

They're a great open water crank because they impart their own deflection or hunting action. You have to fish them slowly but they're a killer at times. Seems like fish really knock the snot out of them when they hit them.

I just picked up a deep and shallow version last week, looking forward to trying both, hopefully Friday :)

I picked up a couple after watching Mike Iaconelli raving about the lure, but  

have not fished it yet. The action does look interesting.
