    Default Rapala X-rap

    I just started using the xrap and it is SWEET.... I caught a 23in trout and a nice slot red two nights ago with it.

    Problem, I noticed that instead of suspending/sinking very slowly, it started sinking tail first. I held it up to the sun and saw that there was water INSIDE of the lure. I thought this was a flaw but it happened to a brand new one I threw about 10 times. I tied on another... same thing. What gives?

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I've often wondered why they didn't have that option on lures. You know, able to fill with water and make it as bouyant as you want. Seems like a pretty easy concept....oh yeah, back to your question, no I haven't, but I've only thrown them a few times, and that was when they first came out. Glad you scored though, I might have to give them another try.

    Never used tham, but know lots of guys that do and love them. Never heard of that happening, but have had that problem with Skitterwalks.

    Skitterwalk is actually a typo, the "k" is really supposed to be an "h"
