I bought a dozen JR's to test last fall. Loved everything about them except the weight. IMO they are too heavy for a toe caught coyote. I only caught 6 or 8 coyotes with them. One was a two toe catch and it was waiting for me, but I don't think it was going to wait much longer.

I have some LT and really like them. They are made like tanks and will not bend or need any adjusting after a catch. I have inside outside lams on both 4 coiled and 2 coiled and very little foot damage. They are made to lock up tight and they def do that. I still like my jakes for when I cover with grass on flat sets but Kendall's traps will last a lifetime. They work great with wire screen as well

I have a dozen of the extremes and a half dozen of the the jrs and they are my favorites. I have had the extremes for about 3 years and have had to tinker with them the least out of any trap I have ever used, and I have not had to dip them since getting them. Stoutest trap on the market, and very well designed with the pan level being below the bottom of the jaw level. I always have good deep pad catches in mine. They work great for me on coyotes and cats, which is mainly what I target. I do catch the occasional fox and the extremes are a bit too much for them and I do get foot damage on them. I have not caught a fox in the jrs yet so I cannot attest to how well the will work on them. They are pretty much an extreme in a smaller more compact setup with a little less weight. I have seen comments on the jrs of guys using a little wax on the trigger to get the pan tension below 2 lbs. A three pound hammer head sets mine off which is good for me. Great traps for me with a good set up ready to go right out of the box. I just have to put my drags on them and go set them.

I've got both the extremes and juniors, both stout traps. The extremes mud up in some soil types, lost one coyote but I think it was toe caught and it twisted out because of the 1/4 inch offset. Could be wrong. The extremes are a great snow trap and if we ever get a wolf season they would be great for midwest wolves. The Juniors fit my style better, 6 inch jaw spread is Ideal for yotes and occasional fox in my mind, but cant get the pan tension below 2.5 even when waxing the contact points. Our red fox here average 8 pounds so if I can't get 2 # pan tension I see tracks on my pans. Love the adjustable dogless design on both. Don't know how they would be on extended checks. Both paw freindly. All mine are 4 coiled and outside lams. The coating on my Extemes are wearing great but not with the Juniors, flaked off in a few spots. For straight coyotes the Juniors fit.. smile

I looked at them but opted for Jakes.

Forgot to mention that I do have some jakes and they are neck and neck in my opinion with the extremes. It is tough to buy them a dozen at a time, hahaha, but they are a great trap as well.

This is my second season with the extreams and they are the trap I use the most. The pan sets below the jaws, and has pleanty of pan tension for full pad catches with the pan flopping, the tension stays consistent. During foot guiding I set a dirt clod, a leaf with a little dirt on it to hold it in place, or a small pile of dirt on the hinge point of the pan to keep the critter stepping on the live part of the pan. These traps lock up strong! I had six NO-BS traps in one field and two NO-BS traps in another field along with one MB650 run over by cotton pickers and large tractors this season. Three had minimal frame bending, a couple strokes with a shop press and they are good as new. The 650 was toast. I also found the jaw bolts to be a little tight, so I loosened them one quarter of a turn and this freed the jaws up nicely. The first traps I ordered with out the coating. The second ones with the coating. I think the coating is a plus but you still need to wax to protect the inner surfaces of the springs, and the jaw and pan pivot points. My traps are four coiled, off set, and outside laminated. I almost forgot. I had one trap box bladed from the middle of a farm road, the j hook opened up and the tractor tumbled and shined my trap up nicely and then left in a pile of dirt. I put some new chain, swivles an super stake on it and was back in business. This is a quality trap!

I really like them, 2 seasons with the Extremes and one season with the Jrs. When I buy new I will be getting more of the Jrs, however I keep finding deals on pre-owned Extremes so I am adding those right now. Running 4 doz last season I had one that came out of adjustment and needed to file the latch slightly but that was it as far as maintenance. The only complaint I have heard is the weight, however it does not bother me at all...............

I have 5 dozen of the Jrís and used them this year for fox and coyote. I ordered 5 dozen more for next year. I love them. They worked flawlessly for me. I sold all my Bridger 2ís, they donít even compare to the quality of these traps.
