Just wanted to get a conversation going in here. Not alot going on. My favorite is the no.11 double longspring foothold, I like all brands. They seem to be plenty strong and they get a low grip. Ive never had a coon chew out of one of them either. I use them most of the time, maybe 97%? Only time I set for coon and dont use one is if its a bad area for theft, then I use cheaper traps, ie: old 1.5 coils etc. Best mink trap going for my money too is the no.11! Been trapping fox's with them too last few years with great success.
