This isn’t a huge plug by any means, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it won’t catch big fish. For such a finesse-style crankbait, the DT-4 casts easily into a breeze and allows for accurate casts in tight quarters.
Durability-wise, it’s much like the rest of the Rapala DT series. It can handle a lot of underwater abuse, but it’s important to remember that it’s a balsa lure, which makes it a bit more susceptible to carelessness. When you get grass or any other type of trash on your hooks, I don’t recommend slapping this lure on the water’s surface. If you can break yourself of that habit, you shouldn’t have any issues regarding the durability of this lure.
