Re: Duke VS Sleepy Creek
For out of the box, the Sleepy's for sure. I have both, caught coyotes in both. I've seen the baseplate bend on Dukes from a coyote. The Dukes will work most of the time but sooner or later something will bend or break. If you want to baseplate, bend jaw tips up, and replace the pan bolt the Duke is just as good. This season I added a dozen #2 Dukes regular jaws I baseplated and worked over. I was very pleased. Held everything that hit the pan including a nice 37lb. coyote with no issues. No need to 4 coil either brand both very strong.
