Rapala Balsa Xtreme
With the responsive swimming action of balsa wood and the strength and color technology of plastic lures;Rapala’s Balsa Xtreme Minnow is the culmination of Rapala history and a modern concept united.
Encased within a heavy-duty copolymer shell, you will notice a perfectly lure shaped wooden body made of the same product that Lauri Rapala was carving lures from during the days of Rapala’s inception – balsa. It is this balsa wood that provides the unmistakable ‘wounded minnow’ action that Rapala has become so famous for.
Combining these traditionally separate raw materials generates a unique mix of rolling & wobbling action at a ratio of 60 to 40 that is super responsive, even at low speeds. The body is long casting and floats on a pause making it ideal for a number of shallow-water or heavy-structure applications.
The BX series is the perfect combination of life-like action, natural look and strength for Xtreme angling conditions!
