Rapala Dives-To Crankbait Lures
Rapala DT Dives-To Crankbaits dive fast to a preset depth and stay in the ''strike zone'' longer than any than other crankbait on the market. Made from the top seven percent of balsa wood, this consistently perfect wood combined with carefully placed internal weights, tapered fuselage and thin tail design creates the ultimate crankbait action, found only in the DT family. Ultra-thin polycarbonate lip digs the bait down quickly to desired depth. Swimming with a side-to-side action only balsa crankbaits can achieve, the DT cranks deep, yet pulls with ease. Perfectly weighted to rest in a ''quick-dive'' nose down position allowing for immediate descent to desired depth, the DT can be easily cast 150 feet. Simply put, the farther the cast, the longer the bait stays in the strike zone. It's the most effective way to cover more water and catch more fish. Internal baritone rattle is tuned for best sound performance. Premiere finishes in all the right color patterns, finished with 3D holographic or painted eyes. All come with premium VMC SureSet tail hook and black nickel belly hook. Each lure is hand-tuned and tank-tested to swim perfectly right out of the box.
Rapala DT Dives-To Crankbaits with Custom Ink Colors by Mike Iaconelli are a masterpiece series of lures exhibiting the personal touch of artisan bass angler Mike ''Ike'' Iaconelli. Ike's personal touch involves three key traits. First, it's their purposefully muted colors. Ike used to ''bake them in the sun'' on his trucks dashboard to get that life-like, muted skin tone. The subtler colors can be unbelievably effective when bass aren't attacking conventional patterns. Next, Ike had Rapala polish the finishes like the translucent candy apple red on a ’57 Chevy for a natural, pearly finish. For the third pivotal ingredient, Ike went super sparkly with glitter. Not just any glitter, but super fine sprinkles that actually add depth to the appearance of the lure. One of Ike's secrets is all about ''using something different, something unique to catch more fish.'' Ike's Custom Ink DT's are all that and more.
