The Black Label Balsa - Hickster - Custom Balsa Crankbait is built after the Zoom WEC Hicky crankbait that the late Ed chambers built, but with a couple of tweaks from the Bass Master Classic Champion Cliff Pace. The Black Label Balsa Hickster Crankbait is hand crafted and painted by MLF Pro Tour Angler and Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace. Cliff cuts the Hickster body on the same machine that was once owned and used by the Late Ed Chambers. The Hickster has a circuit board thumbnail bill with the line tie coming through the bill, just like the WEC Hicky. The Hickster has a tight wiggling action, which is a very desirable action when the water is cold and the fish are finicky or when the fish are under a lot pressure. The Black Label Balsa Hickster is everything you want in a small flat sided Balsa Crankbait with a tight action and it will absolutely get hammered. Like all Black Label Balsa Crankbaits the Hickster 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 Hickster Crankbait is built with a 45-step process that ensures the highest level of quality and performance. The Black Label Balsa Hickster 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.
