I just received 4 z traps that I ordered. I wanted to try them out as I only run dukes right now. Looking for any feedback for guys that have z traps? Pros cons indifferent? Thanks

WCS never heard of that kind of trap. Body grip or leg hold?

Only D.P. I use anymore. I love 'em. Come powder coated, 2 swivels, strong spring, can't beat em for the money.

Only DP I own, I have about 5 dozen. Never had a problem with any of them, the powder coating holds up to abuse, very strong springs, good staking system, no pullouts either. Love them, plus they are very affordable.

Real world???? No coon sales! Lol!


Now that others have posted.....I dont own Z traps, but have not heard one single bad thing about them. I cant imagine many of the traps that stick with the original base design of lil grizz, can be bad traps. I have no probs with my dukes, but I also would consider several other makes of similar design. I seen where the new dukes are now coating their traps with something....I dont know what though. Another good looking dp I been eyeing are Black Hills Dog proofs.

A kid that I kinda got started trappin bought a couple camo z traps, he caught a coon or 2 in em but he seems to have fizzled out this year. Maybe I should see if they're for sale. 8) I know he had some pullout problems in his 1.5 cs traps is why he finally listened to me and got the dp traps anyway! It wasn't a day or 2 later that he had a pair of coons and his pullouts ended.
