i got a dozen duke #4 rubber jaw to try out this year really like the fill of the trap not to heavy 4 coiled from the factory mine didnt have any sharp edges. center swiveled good looking chain and anuther swievel at the end held every thing i have caught in them. now the bad the pans will have to be adjusted all 12 of mine set like rampsand once i got them to sit flat there a pain to get the dog and pan to line up and set. a buddy of mine said he had a yote blow the jaws out of one. on a scale of 1 to 10 i would give it a sold 8 all i could see them doing dif. would be some pan work and a good shock spring
agree scott was some work getting the pans/dogs to my liking but no more than many other brands. think duke hit a homer with the #4 4x4. I got it for multipurpose coyote/otter southern look me up when you move to tennessee

Scott, I have to agree with you all the way with those traps. I got some in, just the 4x4 os, and like them. The pan did have to have some love and attention, and the dog got some love too, but now they are ok. They are sure stout. I went to set with my hands, and the jaw would not lay all the way down, but once got the pin pushed in right, worked fine, and no fingers got mashed, yet.
