Rapala Rap-V Blade Bait – Albino Chrome Tiger - Review
The Albino Chrome Tiger version of the Rapala Rap-V Blade Bait is a highly versatile bait designed to attract a wide range of fish species. Its unique design provides extreme vibrating action, making it incredibly appealing to predators.
The Rap-V Blade Bait is constructed with a metal frame and a durable plastic body, ensuring its longevity. It is perfectly balanced to generate a tight vibration both when it falls and when it is retrieved. This feature makes it effective in drawing reaction strikes from actively feeding predators at various depths.
The bait can be used with a standard chuck-and-wind retrieve, where you simply cast it out and reel it in. This technique is great for attracting predators that are actively feeding. Additionally, the Rap-V Blade Bait shines when used with a lift-and-fall cadence, often referred to as a “yo-yo” retrieve. By quickly lifting the rod tip, the bait darts upwards with an intense vibration. When allowed to fall on slack line, it flutters towards the bottom, mimicking the movement of a wounded baitfish trying to escape from predators in deeper waters.
The Rapala Rap-V Blade Bait features two different line-tie points that impact the bait's falling action. This allows for further customization of its movement to better entice fish. It is equipped with high-quality VMC hardware, including a duo-lock snap, a round bend treble hook on the tail, and a round bend double hook on the belly. These features help reduce the chances of the bait getting snagged or tangled during use.
