This is the announcement post from Rapala representative in Malaysian in Malaysia Fishing Net forum:
Link to forum post.Weeks of discussion, plenty of emails exchanged, lots of patience to wait.... and a final round of meeting with my boss from Finland.....
YES!!! The classic Fat Rap proposal is accepted!!! This is the balsa wood type and we will reproduce 2 size FR05 and FR07. However, for them to slot in their tight production schedule and the coming summer holidays, we have to accept whatever the conditions. This is what we will be having:
FR05 & FR07 - 6 colours and 1 special colour
Chrome blue - CHB - 1200pcs
Chrome Green - CHG - 1200pcs
Firetiger - FT - 1200pcs
Gold Fluro - GFR - 1200pcs
Crawdad - CW -1200pcs
Shad - SD - 1200pcs
REDHEAD - RH - 1200pcs
The other good news is that as there is another run by other group for FR05, there are additional colours never see before and we gladly took the extra run.
Blue Mullet - BMU - 1200pcs
Shiny GFR - SGFR - 1200pcs
Shiny Silver - SS - 1200pcs
Pearl White - PW -1200pcs
Crawdad - CW - 1200pcs
Redhead - RH - 1200pcs
These are the total quantity that will be produce and ship to Malaysia but it wil also cover Singapore market. Pleaes keep in mind that this is a ONE time special production run and we are not sure if we can ask them to do it again next year or when. Time needed is 12 weeks but because of the July summer holiday, the stock will arrive in August!
So guys, start to save your "bullets" and get ready!!!
And here is the picture of the full set against the back drop of the promotional t-shirt printed for this run: I can assure everybody here the full set will surely not be 1200sets as I alone have acquired additional 8 pcs of FR07 CHB and a few others.
