MADE FROM: Beech
ACTION: Wobbles as it sinks and makes a wigwag motion when retrieved, kind of like an X, hence the name.
Work the bait with soft to medium taps, 1 to 6 inches at the rod tip with no slack in the line. It does not take much to work it. If it comes straight, you have pulled too hard or long. The bait can be worked very, very slow. The faster you work it, the more the belly rolls.
