I am  usually a LC pointer guy but there are times when x-raps will flat out crush bass. I'm a big fan of glass and also the traditional black/silver color. Caught 2 19" smallies along with some 15-17" in a period of about 5 minutes on x-raps about months ago. When they're on they're on!

Also, I can't confirm this personally but I hear that the pink color is a smallmouth killer!

I like the XR8s in olive shad, perch, and black/gold for bass. The XR 10s are good for bass as well though.

I just got 2 Xrap's. I got an XR-8 thats white, black, and red. I also got an XRS-6 shad same color. Haven't had time to try them out yet though.

XR08 and XR10 have been very productive for me. My best colors are Silver/Blue, Hot Pink, and Clown.

Anybody here use the Xrap 12 for bass? I would think it should be pretty good when bass are keying on larger forage or when you need to get down a bit deeper. I have caught nice ones on it by accident (both largemouth and smallmouth) when pike fishing.

I have the classic Black and white XR8. Have caught more pike on it then bass, but definitlely a lure I'm looking at getting more of.

As I have expanded my tackle to include more fishing of Rapalas including Husky Jerks and Xraps this summer, I am quickly becoming a big fan of Rapala's baits.

Also caught a spotted gar on it today (pain in the butt getting that thing back in the water and a really freakin ugly fish to boot).

X-Rap Shap in yellow perch (the more subtle perch color) is an absolute killer!  Slays the Larry's and Smallies! The Silver color is another color that I've had success with in XR8 and 10 sizes.
