i was watching f-n[t outdoors last sat and a guy was cutting down his 1 1/2 so that the pan wouldnt hit the springs. he said it gives like a 1/2 inch more grabbing up the leg.well any ways im doing it to mine ,it does give about a 1/2 in more clareing. does any one else do this is what im wondering.

The firt dukes I bought did have a problem with the pan hitting the levers ..at times they wouldn't even close at all. However, after a sho9rt time they raised the pan assy. a bit and I have had no more problem with them at all. When i first seen what they had done I was upset, but after useing them I really liked them as they are now.
As I said on a previous post, I got a dozen #2 dukes and had to modify EVERYTHING on them. I would have been time and $ ahead to buy a solid block of steel and whittle a whole new trap from the ground up. I understand that some of you need 100s of traps so a dollar each is a big deal but not me. Supertrap has used Sleepy Creeks for sale for a new duke price. Now theres a trap. Duke holds the title as the cheapest trap in the industry. The one mod I suggest is to change the OWNER. Works like a champ.......
