Bagley Balsa B

Recommended Posts

I hear the old ones are killer! Sorry that's all I know. I grabbed some of the news on try. But I hear there not as good as the old school. Something about those balsa cranks

I would like to see the back of the package!

But I'd say early 80s ;)

That model is from the late 90s/early 00s. Made in the Dominican. I bought every one of them I could find, I think they are great baits.

Really? Would you be kind enough to share your source with me? Even though this isn't an original Bagley it's still a cool bait and only cost me $3. Wish the guy had some more of them.

The old "Honey B's" are one of my favorite "finesse" cranks.

Bagley's burned down in the late 70's and restarted production agian in the early 80's. The Balsa B was one of the first square bills that would "hunt" swim in a zig zag pattern on it's own. If you have a B that hunts it's worth some money, if it doesn't they get resold. The originals B's are single line tie square bills.

Those are the least desirable if all Balsa B's!

So are these any good? They only cost $3 so I'm not to worried if they don't work but should I even fish them? Also are they at least better than the brand new ones?

 

The brand new ones have gotten bad reviews -  quality issues.  I have seen multiple reports of the baits splitting/cracking... I bought some, but haven't gotten to try them out yet... As for the ones you got, they are very good baits. Are they the quality of 70s Bagleys? No, nothing is.... But they are at least $30 cheaper and fun as heck to fish.
