The Black Label Balsa - Hickster - Signature Series - Custom Balsa Crankbait is hand crafted, painted and autographed by MLF Pro Tour Angler and Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace. Every Black Label Balsa Signature Series Bait is signed and dated with the year it was made by Cliff Pace. The Black Label Balsa - Hickster - Signature Series 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. 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 like the WEC Hicky. The Hickster has a tight wiggle giving it a very unique and desirable action. The Black Label Balsa Hickster is everything you want in a small flat sided Balsa Crankbait with a tight action and it will absolutely smoke'em. 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 flaws in the paint and 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.
