Re: 2 coil vs. 4 coil traps
i run nothing but 4 coil, but i'm up here in Potter County too, so needing to bust thru crusted over ground is pretty much the normal almost all of trapping season. yes, they snap hard- they're supposed to, but i think more leg damage is due to not having enough swivel action moreso than 2 vs 4 coil. i picked up a red yesterday with a nice high ankle snap and it had zero leg damage. i do use offset jaws, but again, i think that swivel action, or lack thereof, does more damage that coils or jaw type.
