I have quite a few MB 550s and am looking for some good replacement springs. They are 2 coiled some 10 years old. I replaced a few with #2 music wire springs last year and some are already weak so dont want to use them again. I was doing some trap maintenance this morning and found 8 that are not strong enough in my opinion. I dont want to 4 coil these traps just strong replacements for the regular springs. Any help appreciated.

Call MTP maybe they can sell you new 550 springs.

Beav I must be having a slow brain day Most of the original springs were good for 8 years so thats what I will do. The #2 Music wire replacement was very disappointing.

I added a 3rd spring about 5 or 6 years ago. Works like a charm. Nice and strong again but easier to set than a 4 coil. Only have to buy half the springs too.
