I have had these lures for a few years now, and was wondering if someone could give me some info on them.
The top 2 brown ones have "original rapala" painted on the lip, and "finland" painted on their belly's.
The little blue one has "finland" painted on the belly, and "original rapala float" molded into the lip.
The big blue one has "rapala magnum floating 18 finland" molded into the lip. I think this one was for saltwater use, judging by the beefyness of the hooks, but I'm not sure.
The sparkly one 2nd from the bottom is make of plastic and the hooks are held in by steel clevises and screws. It says "original Heddon Zara spook" on the bottom.
Lastly the bottom one, still in the package has "made in finland" stamped on the bottom, and "finlandian uistin wobbler" molded into the lip. The package says "Hand made finlandian lure, finlandian lure 10 inches"
All the rapalas appear to be balsa in construction
Thanks for any info, Chris.
