Rapala BX Jointed Shad - BXJSD06 - 2-1/2", 1/4 oz, 4' to 6' Depth


Built with a balsa core and a durable outer shell, the BX® Jointed Shad is very responsive to even the slowest retrieves, yet features a very strong, body kicking action and tracks straight at high speeds. Near-neutral buoyancy with super slow rise on the pause allows for slow, yet aggressive presentation.

Combining the unmatched responsiveness of balsa with rugged durability of plastic, the Balsa Xtreme opens a new era in fi shing lures.

The new, patent pending BX construction 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 be achieved only with balsa.

The tough copolymer outer shell allows ultimate toughness and life-like fi nishes with 3D scales, lateral line and gill plates with a combination of metallic, translucent and painted fi nishes unlike anything seen on balsa lures before.

Truly the ultimate combination.
