EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Hard Lure

Rapala Balsa Xtreme Minnow

Combining the unmatched responsiveness of balsa with rugged durability of plastic, the new Rapala BX Minnow opens a new era in fishing lures.

The Rapala Balsa Xtreme Minnow is manufactured with a new, patent-pending construction that uses a tough, transparent plastic shell to encapsulate a balsa wood inner body. The perfectly balanced balsa core, with precision placed weights, gives the lure a lively, super responsive action that can only be achieved with balsa.

The copolymer outer shell allows ultimate toughness and life-like finishes with 3D scales, lateral line and gill plates. A combination of metallic, translucent and painted finishes are unlike anything seen on balsa lures before, adds Rapala.
