imho.


Its just got to do with where the pressure is on the traps base. The way I do it the pressure is on the ends of the base, breaking them over your thigh (like my trapping partner does) puts the pressure on the center of the base.

I agree though they should be reinforced so no matter how you or anyone sets them they won't bend. wink

Thanks for the replies!!!

For those saying you put 1.5 music wire on 1.5 coils, you talking 2 or 4 coil?
