True to its name, X-Rap Haku – haku is Finnish for seek – is seeking trouble and ready to rumble with the big mamas. Built tough for big fish, X-Rap Haku features Rapala’s proprietary 3R System Titanium Release Rig with VMC Coastal Black hooks. When rigged for action, the hooks are positioned just like on a regular glide bait, and the rig rests in the lure’s belly groove, out of the way and protected from weeds and snags. At hook-set, the hook rig will release from the body, allowing a direct contact to the fish and letting the fish have no chance to use the lure as leverage to break free. The rig also makes removing the hooks easier the fish as the body of the lure is not in the way. X-Rap Haku can be used for different presentations and it is super easy to use. Gliding action can be created by either twitching with the rod or by using a stop & go retrieve. Twitching the rod will create a faster turning side-to-side action, while a stop & go retrieve allows for longer gliding action. A fast burn in between the stops mimics escaping baitfish.
3R – Rapala Release Rig – System is built in to lure and out of the way when rigged. Upon hook-set, the clip at the tail will release the rig from the body, allowing a direct contact to the fish and letting the fish have no chance to use the lure as leverage to break free. The durable rig is built with 100 lbs titanium wire and features a solid connector ring, heavy-duty split rings and premium VMC Coastal Black round bend trebles.
