The Black Label Balsa – Potbelly – Custom Balsa Hybrid Squarebill Crankbait is hand crafted and painted by MLF Pro Tour Angler and Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace. The Potbelly has a circuit board squarebill with the line tie coming through the bill. Cliff worked on designing this bait for several months to get the specific action he wanted out of a hybrid squarebill. This bait has a tight soft, subtle vibrating action, but has a ton of body roll and flash. It has a soft, subtle vibrating swim like a flat bait, but the body roll and flash of a round bait. This crankbait absolutely murders pressured finicky fish. During the testing stage of this bait it really shined when the fish where pressured and wouldn’t hit a standard flat bait or squarebill. There’s something about the unique action of this bait that gets fish to hit it, when they won’t hit anything else. The Black Label Balsa Potbelly is the perfect crankbait when you need a soft subtle vibration with a lot of body roll and flash. Like all Black Label Balsa Crankbaits, the Potbelly is a premium Balsa Crankbait because from the initial carving to the final clear coat, the hand-sealed, hand-painted, hand-cleared Black Label Balsa Potbelly Crankbait is built with a 45-step process that ensures the highest level of quality and performance. The Black Label Balsa Potbelly crankbait is equipped with two Mustad Ultra Point 2x Strong Trebles.
All Black Label Balsa baits are made by hand out of premium balsa wood by Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace. Since this bait is custom built and painted by hand there could be minor differences between one bait and another of the same type and color, So please understand that this bait was built and painted by hand, one at a time. So there could be slight color variations from the bait pictured and the bait you receive.
