RAPALA’S NEW SHADOW RAPS SHIMMY SEDUCTIVELY WHILE SUSPENDING
Rapala is about to change the game – again. With an all new quivering, suspending jerkbait, the upcoming 2015 Bassmaster Classic is sure to set the bait on fire at retail stores. The lure perfectly imitates a minnow’s last moment before succumbing to a bass’ digestive system. It’s an easy meal that’s never been seen before from a lure manufacturers perspective.
“The Shadow Rap does something I’ve never seen another bait do — I call it the ‘death quiver,’” said three-time Bassmaster Classic qualifier and 2014 Forrest Wood Cup Champion Randall Tharp. “When you pause it on slack line, it shimmies from side to side as it’s suspending there. So even when it’s sitting still, it looks just barely alive.”
Randall Tharp, Michael Iaconelli, Brandon Palaniuk, Ott DeFoe and Jacob Wheeler will all be armed with Shadow Raps later this month at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic on South Carolina’s Lake Hartwell. The baits will be unveiled there to the public for the first time, but the Rapala pros have had them for months. And they are impressed. Big time.
“It could win the Bassmaster Classic,” said Palaniuk, the 2013 Classic runner-up. “You can bet that the Rapala Shadow Rap is going to be in my boat.”
Wheeler, a FLW Forrest Wood Cup champion and runner-up, is equally enthusiastic about the Shadow Rap heading into his first Classic.
The Rapala Shadow Rap can be found at Tackle Warehouse for only $8.99!
