Re: should I 4 coil my traps
A new #2 Duke has some of the strongest springs you're going to come across, much stiffer than Bridger springs.
As a matter of fact, Duke jaws have a much better design on the outer edge of the jaws compared to the Bridgers, allowing them to lock up tight when closed.
I would suggest 4 coiling a Bridger trap before 4 coiling a Duke trap because the design flaw on the Bridger requires strong spring strength to keep them closed.
Anyways, unless you are going to laminate your jaws, I would not suggest 4 coiling any trap with good springs.
