What are some opinions of this trap from those who have used them a few seasons?

It is clear in handling some it is a very well built trap. Overkill for mink and coon though?

Only issue for me is there hard to set. If I get more I will get duke springs instead of the ko springs. The lockup is great and nothing bends them. Great traps.excellent mink and coon trap.

thanks. You have to change them out or is this an option? Never had an issue holding a coon in a duke 1.5. Not sure I want much stronger springs...

They are a super built trap. My only issue is pretty much the same as most, a little to strong springs for my use. But that's easy enough to remedy.

You can order them with no springs or duke springs any way you want.

I got mine to mainly trap red fox but we do have a yote visit a set or two every now and then so I want a trap that is well built and can take care of some heavy holding if need be. I have larger traps also but in areas with domestic I would rather use the 1.5 and the NO BS seems to fit the bill. I think it is money well spent if it suits your needs.

You want to no my opinion on why the springs last so long and stayn so strong. I be live the coating keeps the spring protected. Mine are several years old and look great and have paid for them self many times.

instead of ordering new springs that are not so strong just heat them up a bit to weaken them and save a few bucks, i do this to all my rat and mink traps.

I use them and like them. Far better problem to have tooo strong springs than too weak springs.
