Rapala has been producing world-class fishing lures to anglers since 1936. Rapala's reputation branches from an astounding list of world record catch landed with their tackle. It is a company that prides themselves on a history of unwavering dedication to quality, taking advice from professional anglers. Rapala is big on precision and so its lures are still hand-tuned and tank-tested before packaging, assuring the Rapala trademark swimming action that big fish cannot resist. Recently, Rapala has expanded from lures to knives, tools, bags, even sunglasses. Nonetheless, all the Rapala products are reviews and trusted by fishing enthusiasts in over 140 countries worldwide.

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 swimbait 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.

This BX swimmer from Rapala builds on the classic balsa wood body insides, weighing 22g and 12cm in length, this lure has a responsive swimming action there is also internal X-Foil that helps give a swimming depth of around 1.2-1.8 metres which is aided by its slow sinking feature. You only need the smallest of movement to give a sufficient life to the lure thanks to the professional balanced body.

Each cast reaches your intended spot and the lure is perfectly weighted to give a slow sink and retrieve. Rapala professionals recommend a variety of retrieve speeds and twitches in order to successfully imitate a stressed or dying baitfish.

The lure features incredible life-like finishes, with a moulded 3D head, 3D holographic eyes, gills and scales. The plastic body of the lure fish exerts a subtle amount of flash on its flat-side whilst on the roll to help gain the attention of a predator. Its balsa body creates a unique rolling, with moderate swimbait action, that is incredibly balanced for long casting

The heavy-duty copolymer shell makes this lure durable enough to withstand the rigours of everyday fishing needs, including the black nickel VMC hooks that help keep your catch on the line. These lures are all tuned and tested to make sure they perform to the highest standard.

The strength and colour technology of its plastic viewers presents the combination of fo Rapala’s history with modern concepts that meet the needs of anglers today. The lure is available in a choice of two colours: firetiger or redfin perch.

The BX lure is the perfect combination of lifelike action, natural look and strength for the most extreme angling conditions in the UK.
