The Rapala BX Swimmer is a heavy-duty balsa bait with an articulated body and durable pivot system for a lively swimming action. The body is made with a balsa core and a durable copolymer shell that stands up to tough environments and large, toothy fish. This style of construction allows it to be extremely durable while still maintaining the lively action of a balsa bait. The plastic finish allows for the most lifelike designs out there, including a molded 3D head, gills, and scales. Equally effective when casting or trolling. Equipped with VMC black nickel hooks.
