I used to find x-raps expensive. until someone did an average costing based on the no. of fish one lure catches before it's decommissioned either to snags or normal wear and tear. i admit that notwithstanding lemons, rapalas are downright CHEAP.
Then again, there's no LM bass here, only peacock bass; so your bass might like something else better.
that being said, most of the major manufacturers out there make a quality product, and i dont have a loyalty to specific brands, rapala, strike king, sebile, berkely (flicker shads are under rated by the bass crowd, IMO), lucky craft, ima, spro, etc, all have a place in my tackle boxes, and i look forward to each coming icast to see what comes out. so, imo, yes they are worth the money.
my personal favorites are: for daytime berkely flicker shad size 7 (maybe the 9, but thats too new and i havent used it much yet) catches everything, walleye, both smallies and largies, catfish, pike, whitebass, etc. and at night i love clakin minnows to keep over the tops of weeds for walleyes and bass.
