Affordable Replacement for Rapala Fat Rap FR-7?

Recommended Posts

A long time ago (when I was in college), I used a Rapala Fat Rap FR-7 quite a bit.  I only have a couple left (in my tackle box - the rest are in various lakes) and I see at the Rapala site that they only make the smaller FR-5 now.  Does anybody know an equivalent lure for the FR-7?  The FR-7 body is 2 3/4 inches long, about an inch at the widest part.  The bill is about 1 inch long.  I'm not sure how deep it dives.  The lure doesn't have to be balsa wood, and needs to be affordable (less than $10).

Thanks, but I am looking for something easily replaceable (like at my local tackle store)

Or TW

Sadly. Nothing can replace the fat rap for me lol. Rapala and bomber are my favorite. The model A is killer. But slightly different action and profile than the fat rap.
