Hi Larry,

I would like your comments about the New X-Rap 14 and what rod and leader would you use to fish them for snook and tarpon from the jetties in central Florida.

Hi Ages,
I'd use minimum of 60# hard mono for snook and 130# for tarpon if they're of decent size.
For either species, you'll have to replace the hooks.
I think worked as an "extreme action slash bait" (what ever the heck that is???) it would most likely be a much better snook lure than for 'poons, which in my experiece, usually prefer a lure worked much less aggressively.
I'd use a 7-7 1/2 foot med-heavy freshwater baitcasting rod.
