So if you do not want to jump on the eBay bandwagon or spend all day on the phone calling the few shops that have BassTrix, then here are a few more options....
Venom Bad Shad Swimbait
The Bad Shad Swimbait is a 5" solid bodied swimbait. The slender profile of this bait creates an slashing motion in the water. Included in each package is 3 swimbaits and one weighted Sickle Hook. Click to Buy
Optimum Heavy Cover Series Swimbaits
The Optimum Heavy Cover Series was designed for fishing swimbaits and the like weedless in big brush and over weeds. These are solid body baits as well.
Luck ''E'' Strike Bass Magic Swimbaits
These can be found online @ Basspro.com Affordable hollow-bodied swimbaits feature lifelike paint schemes, a water-churning paddle tail, and five sizes to tempt any bass' appetite. From what I have read, they are a slit belly design.
Rainbow Worms Bowfish Paddle Tail Swimbait

The Rainbow Bowfish features a solid body with a slit down the belly to facilitate weedless rigging. It does have the same type of swimbait tail but this tail is no stranger to a vast number of soft plastic swimbaits. The fit and finish of the Rainbow Bowfish is typical of what one might expect of a hand poured worm. Read a in-depth review here.
Ghost Baits Phantom Shads
These paddle tails have a hollow belly but solid head and tail. It also says that all baits are custom made to order.
I have not found much info on these, not sure if they are solid body, slit body or hollow body... It does say they are custom hand poured. But its another option.
Also, Berkley is rumored to be coming out with a bait called Hollow Belly Swimbait....
Happy hunting and hopefully some of you will catch some biggun's on some of these new baits
