Swimming Action

The BX Series of lures from Rapala combine the lively, responsive action our balsa lures offer, with the option to fish them in the most extreme, rugged conditions. Recognized by Field & Stream as "Best of the Best" 2013 Lure, they're the liveliest, yet toughest balsa core baits ever. Balsa on the inside, each is encased with a durable copolymer shell for unbeatable toughness. As a bonus, this construction allows the most incredible, life-like finishes, unlike anything seen before.

NEW Rapala BX (Balsa Xtreme) Jointed Series

Check out these two new additions to the Rapala BX Series, the new BX Jointed Minnow and the BX Jointed Shad! The BX Jointed Minnow is 3-1/2" long and swims at 6'-8' and the BX Jointed Shad is 2-1/2" and swims at 4'-6'. Both have a balsa core with a copolymer outer shell. These lures can withstand the punishment that toothy critters dish out. Two new great options for the shallower water columns.
