I've tried so many of the newer rat traps like the tomcat,t-Rex and quick set victors but keep coming back to the victor proffesionals. In my exp the tomcat style traps are only killing about 50% of the rats caught. The others are not dispatched. These are large outdoor/barn rats though and I'm thinking the traps would do better on smaller rats. What's your guys opinion and exp's with the newer type traps? I also like to use jump traps and long's to catch rats but that's another discussion

I'm especially fond of the traps with a hole in the pan for a bait cup to stick thru. No Way they can get the bait without tripping the trap..

I've tried the tomcats because the wife picked up a bunch, personally I use VPRT's. Not a fan of tomcat rat traps. My son uses Victor and tomcat mouse traps, I've used a few, not even on the same ballfield as victors.VPRT's are hands down the most effective/convenient rat trap on the market.
