I know there's been quite a few posts about these traps but I haven't seen much feed back from the field. They look awesome to me and I have one ordered to check out. My biggest question is that pan almost reaching the free jaw. Is anyone running in
to toe catches or misses because of that?

I put one on the line last season did fine took about 10 coyotes in it a few reds and a gray little rough on the grays leg I think a longer chain would slice that.

Have not had one tripped yet that did not have a critter in it when I got there.

They don't miss much for sure. Got one coyote last winter that had a front and back foot in the same trap. Got a 80 lb. hog in one this year. Got 2 doz. more K-9's this pass weekend. Great traps on a drag set up.

Add about three pounds more steel to the bridger, heat treat the jaws and levers. Add Bolts for spring pin. Pinned jaws.. Basically bullet proof coyote baby wolf trap. There was video on YouTube showing slow motion pics of the ko being fired with tip of pan while resting on the loose jaw. Only issue I have with the trap is weight.

Wow,sounds like some great reviews. How about pan tension on the 4 coils? Any issues there?

Here's the videos 2 Traps mentioned. I kind of expected the trap to at least flip the stick up a little when it fired but it never did. The stick always stayed on the pan. Not the same as an animals paw but I liked the result. Unless the stick was partly on the jaw but I think it would be tough for a coyote to make that happen that way with the pan being lower than the jaw.

I also never get a small possum or coon in one. The larger possums and coons will throw them with no problem. The down side to the little possums not throwing them is they keep coming back for more hand outs.

I ran 2 dozen extremes and 2 dozen JRs last year. Great traps. No toe just full pad. I am converting my fox traps to JRs as I just got another 4 dozen at the PTA convention. Easy trap to adjust and bed. The cross piece extends to the loose jaw so it does not rocks as much as Bridgers when bedding . If you two coil them put the coils on the loose jaw side. The jaws will lay flatter. Something Kendall came up with for the Extremes and I experimented on the JRs with the same results. It's now his standard for all 2 coiled KO Extremes.
I have mine 2 coiled and plenty for fox and held my Bobcat fine. Don't know if I will 4 coil inthe future
Redneck Trapper has the jig to make cookie cutters for both.

How easy is it to remove the 4 coils and make it a 2-coil version? If I was going to try some I'd probably get them 4 coiled, and just take 2 off til they felt like they needed a little speeding up. Do you just unscrew the bolt heads?

I've been trying to resist, but I think I'm gonna need a few of them.

Yes just take the nut off the bolt and pop the spring loose. He has a spacer available to fill in the space left by the spring so just ask for those when you order.
