Everyone knows how much work goes into a soft bait, but creating a premium hard bait can be just as labor-intensive. Northland Fishing Tackle is a good example of this with their new Rumble series crankbaits.
Designed by their chief lure designer, Jarmo Rapala, this series is born from a block of balsa wood and welded with through-wire construction. The finished product is then hand-painted before going off for individual tank testing.
Northland also revealed that all their Rumble baits are handmade from start to finish using the company's signature Heat Compression Molding (HCM) process. The result is baits that run true on the troll while also offering unmatched durability and the ability to cast further than the competition.
Jarmo Rapala has stated that fishing with balsa is better and that he believes Northland has some of the best balsa plugs available on the market today. He also pointed out that their Rumble Series lures, which consist of the Shiner, Shad, and Stack are handcrafted using the HCM process as opposed to a one-piece lathing procedure. There are numerous advantages to this process, including the ability to create and seal together two full-length halves of the lure body. This in turn allows Northland to position the weights more precisely for an optimal center of gravity and superior flotation at rest. It also provides better overall balance, longer casts, and nice, tight action. Rapala added that the lures provide just the amount of roll to drive predator fish crazy. In addition, it allows Northland to through-wire each lure and to finish them off with a light coating of lacquer. This coating is strong enough to protect the body of the lure without adding too much additional weight to it.
Northland has also released a video on the YouTube channel that shows all the steps involved in making these hard bait lures. The video, which was taken at the Northland factory demonstrates the entire Heat Compression Molding process and the amount of hard work that goes into making these lures. Check out the video below and be sure to visit the Northland Fishing Tackle website if you are interested in adding these lures to your arsenal.
