    Well built, big, and heavy duty

    I just finished using this this for a solid week of crabbing. Everything about this trap is great and I caught full pots of monsters well over 6 inches. The only con that I would warn about is the weight. It's heavy! There were time last where it took two grown men to pull a pot of 13 up the pier. My 13 yo could not pull it at all so definitely not for kids. You will get a work out but you will also get a lot of crab. I began soaking for 2 hrs before the pull but when I realized how much more weight that added I started pulling every hour. Although it is heavy it still gets pulled by the current even with the 3lb weight I added... so don't throw off the wrong side of the pier! The last thing to consider is storage. This is a big pot and does not break down. So make sure you have plenty of room not just to store at home but also in your vehicle to transport.

    If you were in deeper water the ramps might settle in the ocean floor better than the cheap ones

    It all depends on the bait where we were at in Oregon 12th street bridge, If you were in deeper water the ramps might settle in the ocean floor better than the cheap ones.Overall very happy with it great design looks very cool, and better constructed than the $40 ones. Didn't do any better or any worse than the cheaper traps, better lid for getting crabs out and man it sure looked great.

    This thing is sturdy

    Really high quality worth the price! Don't settle for those "foldable" crab cages, they are horrible. This thing is sturdy, it weighs about 5lbs so it will stay in one place, but I added weight regardless because I deal with rough conditions in Pacifica. The quality is superb and should last a lifetime I hope, great design!
