I see all kinds of mods to trap pans, but not reinforcements to the pan itself. The trap pans are bent after every coon catch on my bridger 1.5s coils. They are easy to to fix, but all that bending can't be good in the long can it. Are there ways to reinforce the pans or just by new pans

I can't say that I've had any trouble with bent pans. Buy new ones I guess.

I got 2 doz more of the 1.5 bridger traps today, the pans on the new ones are stronger. The traps with the weaker pans were bought when the 1.5 specials first came out. Must have got some weak metal. I will be getting some new pans for the older traps.
