A lot has been said lately about the Rapide Load PVA Bag System from Fox International. We asked Fox to tell us a bit about it and were pleased to receive a fantastic step-by-step guide from them to share with you, along with a demonstration video.
Regular visitors to Anglers’ Net will notice that we’ve left the images larger than normal. This is simply to give you a clearer picture of how the Rapide Load PVA Bag System works.
Hope you find this guide useful!

Rapide Load PVA Bag System – Load it, Twist it, Lick it – Stick It!
The incredible new Rapide Load PVA Bag System range is set to change the way anglers fish with solid PVA bags forever! Having looked at what loading tools were currently on the market our product design guru Scott Day felt that there was still vast room for improvement in this area and he knew just how to take these tools to a whole new level! As a result of many months of development and testing the Rapide Load System was born!
The beauty of the Rapide tool is that not only is it used to fill your solid PVA bag but it is then also used to tie it meaning that you no longer need to fiddle about with PVA tape and gripping the bag between your knees – all very tricky and all very time consuming! With the aid of the Rapide tool all you need to do now is load the bag, twist the tool, lick the top of the PVA and stick the bag shut by bringing the moistened section back onto the bag. The system makes things so fast and simple and in fact Scott best time to date to load and tie a bag is just 18.9 seconds – and that includes folding the corners over too!
There are two sizes of loader tools available – large and small. For the large tool there are three different sizes of PVA bag available these being 85mm x 140mm (perforated), 75mm x 175mm (solid) and 85mm x 220mm (solid). As for the Small tool there are two sizes of bag available – 55mm x 120mm and 60mm x 130mm both of which are perforated. This means in total there are 5 different sizes of Rapide Load System’s available, each of which comprises the loading tool itself, the special locking collar plus a pack of 25 (20 for 75mm x 175mm and 85mm x 220mm) especially designed solid PVA bags and each system has an RRP of only £7.99. Refills for each size are available separately at a cost of just £2.99 for 20 bags (75mm x 175mm and 85mm x 220mm) and 25 bags (all other sizes).

How It Works:
1. Start by squeezing the Rapide tool and then slide the locking collar over the top.
2. Position the collar just above the line and then place the tool inside the top of the solid bag.
3. Align the top of the bag with the line on the tool and remove the locking collar – the tool will then expand and grip the bag.
4. Next, use the tool to scoop a small amount of micro pellet into the bag, as shown.
5. You will then need to place your rig and lead inside the bag like so and then…
6. …place your leadcore into the groove on the loader to hold your lead in position.
7. You will now need to fill the bag up with some more micro pellet until it is ¾ full.
8. Next, simply turn the tool so that it twists the bag up nice and tightly.
9. With the top twisted tightly simply position the loader as shown in the picture.
10. Rotate the bag and tool carefully moistening the top of the bag that is still on the loader as you do so.
11. Now push the tool down over the bag so that the moistened top is transferred to the bag to seal it.
12. Remove the tool, and then fold the corners of the bag over to make it more aerodynamic and your bag is complete!
