    What is your favorite coilspring trap brand and why? I am new to trapping and looking for input.

    Cant beat a Victor out of the box! :up:

    However...............if you like to modify your traps like I do, then go with Duke traps. Dukes are built well and are solid, but they have rough edges. Which makes no difference if you are modifying them!

    I only buy Dukes these days. :up:
