Man that hardware looks gun shy

No doubt! I change hooks and rings on every plug I purchase, so…..

 

The dart and skitter are thru-wired so they have that going for them.

Rapala uses VMC I think. But they always use hook sizes more appropriate for puppy redfish IMHO.

Seriously. Looks like mackerel hardware, wouldn't want a decent blue/bass/drum hitting on those stock hooks and rings.

Dart and skitter are advertised w/ VMC 7556 3X, and I’m sure they are some form of VMC rings that are underwhelming…

I haven't used those hooks personally, but maybe it's the size that's offputting.

 

Don't even start me on the split rings....

Crazy thing is that I have the large size x-rap - I forget the number. I dunno if it is their biggest but it’s bigger than a standard original size SP. I guess about the size of a hydro minnow but fatter through the middle?

 

Anyway, that one came with awesome splits & trebles. Anything up to that size comes with atrocious splits and wimpy trebles or in line singles that seem underwhelming as well.

That skitter looks a lot like a needle right? Really curious what kinda action these have.

Wait they make x-raps with a stock treble? I thought they only came with singles. 
 

Or maybe that's a recent change....

Had this larger one for minimum 5-10 years.
