Molix RA Shad Swimbait

by Ned Kehde   |  October 7th, 2013 3


Midwest finesse anglers are perpetually in search for a new grub to ¬†affix to a jig, such as Gopher’s ¬†Tackle Mushroom Head Jig.

Consequently, a member of the Finesse News Network posted a brief note asking if any finesse angler had seen and used the three-inch Molix RA Shad Swimbait.

This request provoked us to post this blog that describes some of the attributes of this soft-plastic swimbait that is said to exhibit a real-action shad.

It is made from a high density silicon mix that is enriched with a fish scent.

Its hydrodynamic design, which is endowed with a ribbed torso and thin tail that is fitted with a boot, is said to provide it with excellent stability and an alluring swimming motion at slow- and fast-pace retrieves.

It is available in eight colors: green-pumpkin, orange pumpkin, smoke sunrise, white shad, yellow back, sedusente (which is a sexy-shad hue), and savetta (which has a pearl belly and black back)

A package of five can be purchased for $4.99.

Endnotes: Here’s hoping this short blog will generate some comments ¬†from anglers who have used it. ¬†The comment section below the blogs is an excellent place and way for anglers to exchange information.
