Slightly weighted, this gravity defying body sinks, at a steady rate, to your desired depth allowing you to repeatedly reach and retrieve without rising out of the strike zone. Casting or trolling, the Scatter Rap® CountDown® is the perfect choice for any species of gamefish.
Building on the classic articulated body style, the Scatter Rap® Jointed swims with an irresistible, seductive action. The jointed body combined with a Scatter Lip takes action to the “Nth” degree, triggering strikes from otherwise uninterested or hesitant fish.
