Rapala BX Swimmer - BXS12 - 4-3/4" 3/4 oz, 4'-6' Depth


The flat-sided BX Swimmer features an articulated body with a double pivot joint which in combination with the responsive, solid balsa core creates a rolling, moderate swim bait action that starts on a very slow retrieve. The durable co-polymer hard shell protects the delicate balsa and allows highly detailed, life-like finishes. The BX Swimmer is weighted to be slow sinking and balanced for long casts.

Combining balsa and plastic on a two-piece lure generates a unique rolling, moderate swim bait action that is super responsive, requiring only the smallest amount of movement in order to give sufficient life to the lure. The body is balanced for long casts, and the lure is weighted for a slow-sink on pause.

The double pivot joint keeps the body parts in line on the pause, thus keeping a natural baitfish profile when the lure slowly sinks and making the BX Minnow an ideal lure for stop and go presentations.

Fish your BX Swimmer with a variety of retrieve speeds and twitches in order to imitate a stressed or dying baitfish. The plastic body with the partial internal metallic foil finish exerts subtle amounts of flash that just might catch the eye of waiting predators.
