It does....they suspend great and work very well on coldwater specks. Cast it out as far as you can and give it two or three cranks to get it down. (xrap has a lip on it, unlike 17's or twitchin raps.) Pause it for 5-10 seconds and give it very light twitches. The lure has a seductive wobble on the twitch. 98% of the time, the bite will come on the pause so be ready. And be aware that in the absence of current, an xrap will actually float to the surface. In essence it is a lipped floating minnow. Take the hooks off and she floats like a cork. Love that bait! The only downside is that it is very light, so it can be hard to cast. I use a 1000 series with 6 lb. braid and 10 lb. flouro for them and other small lures such as the yo-zuri 3D minnow. That glass ghost color is good in clear or stained water, and the gold for muddier conditions.
