Holy Cow! A Super X at that! I only use the Belisle Classics. Sold all my Super X's, too hard to stabilize, IMO. But, love the safety hooks and strong springs of the Classics.

I get what youíre saying, but every 280 and 330 deserves our full attention. Reverence is more like it. Imo, belisles are the most user friendly BGs I own. I donít remember setting a different brand one for beavers in nearly two years. Theyíre the safest BGs I own, and thatís important to me.


I treat every big BG like a loaded gun. I got a wake up call with a Bridger 330 one night. I put it on a stabilizer to take a picture for this forum actually. I donít remember why the safeties were off, but they were. I reached nearby to move some grass for the picture, and WHAM! I sure didnít expect a trap just sitting on the stabilizer to fire, but it sure did. Missed my hand/arm by INCHES.

Never again. I returned to my policy of treating the large BGs like loaded guns. No body parts in the danger zone unless itís wearing one of Bob Bestís safeties. No exceptions, ever.

I had a turtle in a Belisle 220 one day. I forgot my setters, and of course it was the one day I didnít have my emergency paracord setters in my back pocket. I pushed the turtle out and managed to get both of my thumbs caught. It wasnít comfortable (NOTHING like this guyís plight), but I just could NOT get my thumbs out by pulling. I ended up stepping a H-stand into the levee then put the spring eye on the stabilizerís arm and compressed a spring. Repeated. Lesson learned there too. Those jaws obly closed inches. I can not imagine a full strike from a 330!


I dang sure plan on keeping my scrote away from em! Good grief, I thought I knew what a bad day was like!

Ouch, did you cry? I know I would've squeezed a frozen tear or two out. I've been blistered up by some 155s and was ready to swear off conis , can't imagine that brute biting.

Thanks everyone.... I broke a finger last year and reworked all my traps. I don't know why this one fired, but the setting tongs caused the cut. Here's the Xray

When I first started trapping I was messing with a new 330 and managed to catch my bare foot, I don't even remember how. The dog spun around and was being driven into the top of my foot. I was yelling at my wife to get the setters and she was laughing so hard she could barely walk across the room, needless to say it really hurt and I learned to be a little more careful.

Who is handling 330 membership cards this season?

There is a JV league for 220s. I belong to both.
