Re: powder coated dogproofs

i dont have any of the Z traps yet(if thats what they are) but from what i've been reading about them the coon do put a a bit of a whoopin on the powder coat if they fight long in the grit. they are getting great reviews. for the price they cant be beat. ive been using dukes for a few years, and plan on picking up some Z's

Re: powder coated dogproofs

i think if your in some sandy or rough dirt, there aint nothing that will hold up against a wizzed coon. but i heard it takes a lot for them to rough it up. but for the price and features, the Z's are a good buy.

Re: powder coated dogproofs

The price is a little better than a Duke but other than that their about the same trap. So what if the powder coat wears off.After it wears off you still have a good trap that you have to treat like any other dogproof.

Re: powder coated dogproofs

Picked up a dozen z traps at the beginning of the season. I can't be any more pleased with them. The powder coating is tough and the push/pull trigger system is better than the duke pull only trigger IMO. They also have an extra swivel that is a plus and the staking system is also alittle better than the duke. Great traps so far!

Re: powder coated dogproofs

I like dry Coon.
The powdercoated DP's are holding up for me.
Here's a picture from this morning, a 21 lb. female.

See the trap? Still looks coated and she's standing on her head...


I moved the trap out of the catch circle, but still on trail and ready for action... Darn DP's are great and easy, even a caveman can do it...

I have a little bit of wear on mine but overall, they're holding up pretty well.
