Big Rap For Lure & Superline

THE Rapala Clackin’ Minnow and Sufix 832 Advanced Superline have been honored with the Field & Stream Best of the Best Award in the Lure and Accessories category for 2011.

The award is presented to those products judged to be the most innovative and best designed in their class based on the significance of the innovation, the quality of the design and the value they bring to anglers.

“Field & Stream magazine has been the leading authority in all aspects of fishing,” said Tom Mackin, president of Rapala USA. “We are honored that the Clackin’ Minnow and Sufix 832 have been awarded Best of the Best Awards in their respected categories.”

“Having the right gear is a huge part of fishing, and the Field & Stream Best of the Best Awards are our way of vetting and recognizing the best stuff out there,” said Jay Cassell, deputy editor at Field & Stream.

Like the original Clackin’ Rap, the Clackin’ Minnow features a single stainless steel ball that transmits a loud cadence rattle that fish not only hear but feel as it produces vibrations through the water. The Clackin’ Minnow combines characteristics from three tried-and-true Rapala lures: the Clackin’ Rap, X-Rap and Flat Rap. Those actions, combined with Rapala’s classic wounded-minnow action, give the Clackin’ Minnow its aggressive, hard-flashing action that induces strikes.

Sufix 832 line is comprised of three main technology features. The first is Dyneema fibres, which contribute to the small diameter, high strength and sensitivity of the fishing line. Secondly, the GORE Performance Fibres add improved abrasion resistance, noise and vibration reduction, along with improved casting length and accuracy. Lastly, the R8 Precision Braiding and fibre technology add superior strength, roundness and line consistency.

Sufix 832 is the first fishing line to combine both Dyneema and GORE polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) fibres.
