MB650 laminated and offset, no room to chew, very solid trap. Around here, always anchor solid. Minimum 2 swivels, but my set ups with cable have 3. Its smaller than the 750, which I like and use more, but it has more room for self inflicted nail chewing.

#4 OS DL laminated, and baseplated. I really like the 650s like mentioned above but have setting them.

Good luck.

14 Victor Jump traps. Change out the factory chains and your set.

X3. But I am kind of stuck on podunk. My 14OV's have PIT pans and dogs and #3 twist link chain. I run 3' of chain and 3 crunch proof swivels on mine. All of the traps mentioned are up to the task.

Mb 650 like Alaskan said. I have some Blake & Lamb #4 jump traps I was trying out this last winter but I never did connect.

I know the 750 has "the ability" for access to a frozen paw, and any actions an animal may take from that point (its up to them). The 650 does not allow for the same ability.

I much prefer the MB750 and have never lost anything from one and never had the aforementioned issue.

Thing with the 14 Victor Jump traps is the undersping helps for the Chewing of limbs/phalanges. Takes up the space inside the jaw. If i want jus a wolverine set i use it. If i want a multi-set i move up in trap size to an MB 750 or bridger 5. On another note, most of our marten sets have a trap underneath the leaning pole. Catches the occasional lynx/wolverine.
