I'd have to add my vote for the Bridger. I run mostly #3 modified offsets but I do have a few #2's and they do well.

I mainly run modified Montana and Montgomery #3s, but I also have a few high lever Victor #3s and they seem to work well. All my coyote traps are fully modified.

MB-650 offset-outside jaw lamination extremly fast trap easy to bed also use a bullet point with 18" 1/8" cable for anchoring an equally efficient trap is the Bridger#3 canadian modified 4-coiled os inside & outside jaw laminations ive got about a 100 of each & they both perform very well.

I have used the victor #3 for a long time but this year i bought a couple doz sleepy creek #3 and the coil springs on the sleepy creek are just as strong as a four coiled victor. The doz sleepys i four coiled are just unbelivable strong i think they might hold anything that steps in them deer included. Just [beeep] for stout traps. I like victors but i think sleepys are built better.
Im just a peckerwood that lives in the sticks with to many guns. (love that saying)

Favorite trap would have alot to do with your target animal. Guessing you are after bobcat or coyote I have had luck with the bridger #3 offset laminated and baseplated. I really like the trap. I will say however that after looking at the MB 550RC i sure would like to give it a try. They are sweet right out of the box. Have never used one but am very impressed I am going to give those a try next time I order traps. They have a little smaller inside jaw spread than the bridger #3 but I feel it is made upfor by the fact there is no dead spot by the dog (tested it myself). For racoon I like a cheap 1.5 i struggle with loosing my coon traps, if not for theft they go downstream when the creek floods. Having said that i I have been replacing my lost 1.5s with dukes less expensive immatation of the little griz. I don't have enough of them to commint yet this year but i like what I here and alot of guys are switching to that style of trap (I guess i'll find out)
