I've been running bmi's for as long as I can remember, never have had a problem with any of them.

I run real old Vics, Duke and some BMI. I have to say that the BMI are my favorite traps. For water use, if you spend a few mins and tune them, and I do all my large ones because of otter, the Duke is great! I know, the haters will come out, lol and that is ok too. I wound up with a few 160 Duke traps and love them for rats, in fact, I set one in a strange place for a rat, and dang if I didn't have a 45 pound beaver in it. He was DRT (dead right there for folks not from Miss.) I run about 8 feet of chain and cable on them, and it appears he never flinched. May never happen again, but was right impressed with that lil trap. No, lol I wont be setting them for beaver, but I do have a few swivels in the line for the odd otter that decides to get in the wrong trap.

I do know that the Duke traps that I held, the springs were stronger than those on the same sized Bridger. I wont run Bridger down, but would compare them before spending. I know one man spent a lot of money to return I think it was 5 doz 220 Bridger because they were weak.

them dukes do have strong springs, but stronger dosent make them better
its ok on conis but on pans they cause unnessary damage to the critters thats why I dont use dukes
