Finnish lure giant Rapala used the Bassmaster Classic in Tulsa as the launchpad for its Scatter Rap® series.
The four model range features the Scatter Rap Crank, Shad, Minnow and CountDown and they all mimic a spooked baitfish fleeing an attack thanks to the patented Scatter Lip™ that creates an evasive, erratic and aggressive sweeping action.
The balsa-bodied lures are armed with VMC Black Nickel Hooks and can be cast or trolled at various depths. Diving depths are
- 6’ to 8’ – Scatter Rap Crank;
- 5’ to 8’ – Scatter Rap Shad;
- 6’ to 8’ – Scatter Rap Minnow;
- Variable depths – Scatter Rap CountDown.
Rapala’s Mike Iaconelli said: “The Scatter Rap brings game-changing action to the water produced by an innovative and uniquely designed curved or ‘Scatter Lip’ which creates an effortless and instant evasive swimming pattern.
“By varying reel speed, crankbait addicts will see an immediate sweeping action that perfectly mimics a spooked baitfish fleeing an attack, moving from one side to the next – triggering reactive bites.”
