Senneker-Elite #645 Breakaway - This is a mid weight BAD, has value for both the Senneker Albarta Powersnare as well as any common steel neck snare for coyote used without killing springs. This device also has value on short wolf snares and specialty wolf applications and is a similar strength to the average BAD sold in the USA for regular snare applications with common snares.
As each trapper discovers their own personal challenges, the #645 will be the answer for those having difficulties holding targets with #385 BADs
Breaking strength is 350 lbs

Senneker-Elite Breakaway Devices
The finest line of Breakaway Devices in existence. Currently built in 5 different sizes to accommodate the varying needs and personal touches of each and every trapper. Though a simple s-hook, these devices have been specifically manufactured for breakaway snare function with quality material and precision/uniformity.
Please be aware, when using these devices that the kill spring will affect the release point of the BAD as it cushions the BAD. This is a plus on target game but can become a negative on large game and livestock until the spring is fully bottomed out. Because of this fact, use a lighter s-hook BAD when using the torsion spring kill springs than you would without.
Our Stinger Kill Spring system is designed to work in conjunction with an s-hook breakaway. The s-hook creates a necessary pivot point for the snare lock to function when a kill spring is used.
We highly recommend that a breakaway device is used on all upland snares to reduce/eliminate potential bycatch.
NEVER TIE SNARES OFF WITH WIRE AS LIVESTOCK AND BIG GAME CAN READILY BREAK WIRE. Keep your non-targets around long enough for BAD to function.
