I may or may not pull the trigger and buy 2 dz. Do you think it's worth it or not? I want the animal to be as comfortable as possible.
Thanks in advance.

I'm somewhat ambivalent on them. Nice to have but not needed, imo. That said I do use them.

I use the pos-i trip inline shock springs on my base plated #3 Victor coils. The chain from the trap d ring to the end of the shock spring is just long enough for the shock spring to go under the loose jaw when i bed the trap. Solids up bedding the trap a little faster..

I'm with Savell, they all end up dead. But I trap downtown Atlanta so painting a pretty picture is just part of the game.

I agree
Don't over think and keep it simple.

This is just my thought. It is just something more on the trap that needs to be bedded. I do have traps with them which would be Northwoods 1 3/4 that came with them from the factory. But all my newer traps I haven't put them on so really cant say one way or the other if I would like them. But more is not always better.......

Yep. All my traps have them, but I live market trap. Before I moved to where that was legal, I didn't own a one.
