Can you explain what the cross fire trap is or how it works?Snapper said:I talked to a rep from MTP they were 100% confident in the Bridger D/P traps and the product testing that was done. I’ve used MTP for years and they’re great people and a quality place to order from. I’m sure everything will be fine with them. For me, I just cannot get past what seems like to many corners being cut.
I’ve been emailing with Neil from the ztrap company for me, that’s were I’m putting my money at. They’re coming out with a new crossfire trap and eliminating their push/pull trigger design. It’s a little more money for the crossfire $150.00 a dozen but for me that seem like the best use of my money. They still have the push/pull triggers if you are interested but they will not be making anymore once the crossfire trap our out.
I hope this helps.
thanks for explaining how they fireSnapper said:They are going to eliminate there push/pull trigger from their product line and replace it with what they are calling a crossfire trigger. I would think there would be both pro’s and con’s to the push/pull triggers such as toe catches if you have too much bait in your trap. I’m getting off of the tack from the question.
The crossfire trigger will not be push or pull; the trap will be fired form right to left movement of the trigger. Their theory behind this is the coon will have its paw buried in the trap to its furthest possible point pulling the bait out prior to the trap going off. If the coon has it paw in the trap pulling the bait from underneath the trigger/past the trigger its paw would then be at the deepest point in the trap prior to it firing.
They will be at both the P.T.A. and N.T.A. conventions. I do not work for them or know them I’m just going off of information I received while inquiring about information prior to making a purchase. Is it good/bad, that is for you to decide but it is another way of building them. I think I’m going to hit a convention and take a closer look prior to making a purchase of 4 or more dozen traps.
