Well, I do not believe i have ever been so ticked off on the trap line until this happened. The MB-550 four coil is one powerful trap i must say. I am just glad the trap was an off set. The first day i did not know if it broke my finger or not, but i am glad to say it is not broken. My finger is still numb 5 days later though. Happy Trapping guys and keep your fingers out of the danger zone on those traps.
