Rapala X-Rap Countdown Fishing Lure XRCD Series
The Rapala XRCD hard bodied fishing lure is a unique controlled sinking lure that allows anglers to count the lure down to the desired depth then start your retrieve putting Rapala X-Rap countdown fishing lure right in the strike zone.
Rapala X-rap Countdown fishing lures have a controlled sink rate equating to around 1 foot per second so you can count it down to the desired depth. This count down feature gives the XRCD7 or XRCD5 great benefit when targeting fish around structure or when the fish are schooled deep in the water column.
If you’re on a boat fishing a basin, lake, dam or a river with some depth to it and a fish or so show up on your sounder, take note on how deep down they are in feet, drop your lure and start counting at 1ft per second. 10ft down equals 10 seconds. Get to where the fish are and get better results.
Most conventional hard body fishing lures need to be slow rolled or twitched as to entice a fish to strike but not with the Rapala X-Rap Countdown Fishing Lure XRCD series as they produce a light flutter on the sink and fish will often give the XRCD a nudge as it descends.
