Rapala X-Rap Pop
Designed to out-perform other poppers on the market, the Rapala X-Rap Pop features a specially designed thin-cut cupped mouth that pops, spits and bulges just like a shad on the surface. It also delivers long casting capabilities, and is designed to sit tail down when at rest for a better hook up percentage. A loud, hypnotizing rattle calls fish up from the deep, and its VMC teaser hook offers additional action even on the pause. Available in a range of proven Rapala colors, the Rapala X-Rap Pop can even walk-the-dog if you pair it with a split ring.

Comments: I love how people will say someone 'doesn't know how to fish' or something similar, when they bash a bait. I happen to agree that I don't care for this bait. You can tell me I don't know how to fish b/c I don't like it, but I have to claim derby winnings on my tax forms and you probably don't.

Comments: Great Popper, very durable, the hooks are sharp enough to go threw your finger's, I know from expierence. Great finish on the bait, Moss back shiner works great for the small water's ive been fishing.

Comments: I've used this all summer and so now it is time for a review. This is an awesome popper by Rapala, I noticed it sounded different right off the bat, no big chug or gurgle, more of a big spit, but it moves water forward. Give this a try and don't be surprised at how often this popper gets bit, even in tough conditions, there is something to the unique sound it makes that has fish just tearing it up, great popper!!

Comments: I have no idea why people are writing bad reviews on this! My new favorite popper hands down! This bait isn't like other poppers in the fact that when you make big BLOOPS or GLUGS it falls back and rattles! This has made the difference in several situations. I've caught tons of fish off points with this and love it to death! Dont listen to the fake reviews buy it!!

Comments: What a great lure! Not too many lures that you catch a fish on the first cast! Never a bad sign. I had no issue with the prop catching the line as someone else had mentioned. Flew clean, landed well, and was easy to get proper action from immediately with the slightest twitch of the rod. Lots of surface commotion, pause and hang on! I found the 3 hooks to be a bit of overkill. But easy enough to remove the front one. I'm not fishing for $.

Comments: Good bait until the eyes fell off. I caught a lot of fish on it until a pike ended the fun. I think it has good splash. I would recommend changing the rear hook.

Comments: Of all the topwater baits that I've thrown, this has to be the worst. I have caught some fish on it, and my buddies have too, but overall, I'd prefer a G-splash, Chug Bug, Yellow magic or most anything else. This has been a dedicated wiper bait for my 5 year old.

Comments: I don't know why the reviews aren't that great on this bait. I love it. After all it is a Rapala. Great looking bait with sticky sharp hooks. Caught lots of fish on mine.

Comments: FAIL. The spit on this SUCKS. I got two of these chunks o' turds b/c I needed a larger profile. What a waste. Seriously unproductive.

Comments: someone has the x-rap pop confused with the x-rap PROP which is real similar to the great devils horse. the new x-rap prop is a beauty but only time will tell if it produces like a devils horse. if this x-rap prop is equal to the pop-r which it looks like, it will be another winner from rapala.
From: Wes: Salinas, CA
Comments: for such a large body this popper has a decent pop, but does not have near the "spitting" or walking potential of a splash-it. Spend the extra money and you wont regret it.
From: Sean: IN
Comments: this is an awesome popper. Not sure why anyone would compare this to a devils horse. It makes no sense.
From: Tim: TX
Comments: ehh its ok,i suggest u save $5 and go with the trusty smithwick devil horse,that bait hs been around forever and still to this day will kill bass whenthe topwater bite is on..to me this rapala is just a copy of the smithwick an $5 more.a little trick to the devil horse too....shhh...unscrew the front prop and turn it around and put it back on,it gives the lure a more "wounded" and commotion action,on days th reg. devil wasnt gettn hit as much a simple change to the front prop turned the bite back on.

Comments: Good size bait, might be blast for smallmouth, the popper is classic bait, Good fishing Forever!
