I just created this page (as it had a red link in another article, Rapala) and this was honestly only the second article I have created on here, so I am still getting it down how it should be done. I have redone this article basically from scratch, removing anything that I thought probably could have been taken as advertisement. So I'll be more careful next time.

Deletion request?[edit]

This page was marked for speedy deletion. I removed the tag. Here is why this product is notable:

  1. This same lure has been produced for 71 years - a classic.
  2. This lure is the basis for most modern wobblers. They are either copies or made by Rapala.

For reference, you can see the German Wikipedia: de:Wobbler (Angeln). It claims that the first wobler was developed by Lauri Rapala in 1936.
