The above lures were a gift to Thebassman's Cove. The web-master can not thank enough the very Special Lady that donated these lures to his collection.

This is just one of the color patterns I have in this lure style. The Velvet Squid is a flocked lure that not only has a rattle but as far as I know of, "The only Rapala model line that glows in the dark." This is a wild looking lure. This has to be the nastiest set of hooks I've ever seen.
View Here.This is the #9 size and the color code, VO (Velvet Orange)

Update 6/24/2001
A few more Rapala Specials that I've added to my collection.

CD-9 XFRH.View Here
One of several Countdowns that have been appearing lately. The red on this lure is slighly different than other 'RH' more of a Flo or day-glow.
CD-9 PKB.View Here
Another great looking Countdown.
J-7 PW.View Here
A new Jointed to add to the collection, This is the 'PW' Pearl White color pattern.
HJ-8 AYU?View Here
Another color pattern that I've seen in the "Japan" color codes. I'm not sure if this is the 'AYU' or AYU5 color pattern.
2-SpecialsView Here
2 more Rapala 'specials' that have been added. I don't have these lures yet, but I do know one is a CD-? PKB and the other is a J-7 in whats been described to me as 'Rainbow', it's all pearl white with a blue tint along with the other color. I'm not sure of this color code.
