If you like the Super Shad Rap by Rapala, you’ll love the Super Cisco from Tackle Industries. The size and shape are very similar, but the Super Cisco is a little bit fatter. The front lips are also a similar shape, but the Cisco’s lip is a little bit bigger and fatter. Even the weight is about the same, with the Cisco weighing 1.71 oz and the Shad Rap 1.60 oz. Both dive to about 8 feet, both sport 2 treble hooks and both have through wire construction. So this is the part where you’re probably thinking that this is simply a knockoff of the Super Shad Rap, but you’d be wrong.
The Super Cisco really sets itself apart in the details. It has 3D holographic eyes, a built in rattle, can be trolled over 10mph and comes in a ridiculous amount of colors and patterns with fresh and saltwater variations! How many patterns? Try 42. Which as many of you know is the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything“. How many patterns does Rapala offer? 12.
And in case you need another reason to try out one of these lures, here it is – they are only $9.99 USD each.
