Hello everyone,

 

Has anyone used the RipStop yet? It looks different then your typical jerkbaits.

I haven't but they are on sale this week at Fleet Farm so if you hear they are any good let me know so I can go buy one!

This is the first I've heard of this one.

Have not fished it. 

Interesting design.

Of course, the past two or three seasons, the good folks at Rapala have worked over time feeding the Hype Machine.

 In most cases the baits have been OK - but that's about it.

This one appears to be in that category for me.

A-Jay

I have a pretty good collection of shallow and deep diving Shadow Raps already (which I like very much) and the RipStop just seems too close in design and action for me to "diversify" to such a small level.  IF I find a good sale on them, I'll probably pick one or two up but at their current price...they will likely remain on the shelf.

Got one for Christmas from my boys, but it is going to be quite a while before we've got water around here to try it out...

On two recent fishing trips I outfished my buddy's Rip-stop with a Megabass vision 110. The next trip the Rip-stop outfished the Vision 110.

Its smaller than the Shadow Rap series and is pretty lightweight. I used one last year on a spinning setup with 6lb YoZuri Hybrid and it may have hit 3-4" at most. It did produce fish as well. Good colors and action as with any Rapala brand lure. Seems that most people don't like it as its much smaller than they expect it to be.

They work on snook. Haven't tried them for bass yet.

Well I got sucked into buying one at a discount in perch pattern.  Its noticeably smaller than other rapala jerk baits.  I may not even be able to toss it on a bait caster.  Who has tried using one on a bait caster?  Or will I be forced to use a spinning setup with this smaller lure?

I have not used the Rip Stop but the Shadow Rap is one of the best jerkbaits out there and compares favorably to the Japanese jerkbaits on the market in my opinion .
