Senneker -Elite #750 Breakaway – This device has been the ‘meat and potatoes” device for the modern wolf trapper, recommended to be used on 13 foot snares maximum. Use with caution when used with Magnums around high value non-target animals. Universal rating of 420 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. Also, further note that the Magnum Stinger is still a relatively new device and it will take time to determine the ideal breakaway poundages to use with the powerful spring. We welcome feedback from our wolf trappers.
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.
