Tried it last weekend with great results. Quality product.
Just got a chance to try my new Durasnare out at the Oregon coast, what a blast!! I own a $100K fishing boat with 8 crab pots that just might sit in the driveway more often. These snares come packaged flat and spread out better than the other snares available. Quality product!
I’m a bass pro employee and love to go crabbing and I’ve tested and used many snares in the past years and by far these snares have produced and caught many crabs for me this season. Loops never lose their spring and are positioned in a way that covers all bases of the snare, I also really like the addition of a clip for an extra weight. I’m hopeful and excited for this company, hoping to see more variety and variations in the coming years!
I ordered a pair of snares, and they got lost, and was shipped another pair. Before all this i wasn’t thinking much, but durasnare reached out and im happy to say they have excellent communication and services. Would definitely recommend! Also excited to give these a go soon!
Ordered online on Monday and it was in my mailbox by Friday just in time for me to use on Sunday! Super easy to use, I stuffed the snare with raw chicken and casted it into the waters. I waited about ten minutes and caught one then repeated the steps and caught another. Easy Peasy and I didn't even break a nail! I find crab snaring is easier to do than pulling up pots and it's easier to find a spot on the docks to set up and go!
Purchased durasnares for the first time and glad I did! Precisely designed compared to others I’ve used. Ships fast! Excellent customer service! I’m definitely a future customer and won’t recommend anything else.
I really like these took them out the other day. One chicken tender and got my 12 crabs in a little over an hour. Pretty good deal !
If you're ready to catch a gauge buster this season, then this is the snare for you. From the weight of the snare to the retractable loops, this snare has been nothing but amazing. There is so much time and effort put into each snare that is made and it shows.
I first heard about Durasnare on a local Facebook crabbing page and thought, "oh look another snare. They don't work, I'll stick to my flappy traps."
I headed to the coast for a spur-of-the-moment crabbing trip with my flappy traps. The wind was strong and blowing in my face. I stood on the rocky shore and casted. The wind prevented a long cast and I ended up snagging on the rocks and lost my flappy trap....not once, but twice! I wasn't about to go home empty handed. I got in my truck, pulled out my phone and sent a message to Durasnare asking where I could purchase one of their traps. It was a Saturday and didn't expect a reply. Well, I was wrong. The person (now, i know his first name) said where I could find one of these snares. I took the 4 minute drive to the small market and bought 2, while still thinking about how snares don't work, but also thinking, "I'm not going home without at least 2 crab to eat." I returned to my truck, drove to a different spot, a sandy beach to nake my attempt at using these snares. When I parked my truck i reached over to the passenger seat to grab one of my new snares. I opened the package and removed the piece of carboard the snare was attached to. This was definitely not like any other snare I had seen or used in the past. This snare was weighted. When I removed the bread ties that held the snare to the cardboard backing the loops sprang out perpendicular to the bait box. The loops actually stayed in the open position! I was starting to see the major differences from the flimsy snares I had used in the past.
I grabbed my rods, rod holders, bait box and snares and walked down the beach to the water. I hooked my snares to the lines,stuffed some bait in the snare and casted...that snare went probably 140'! That weight made a huge difference! The outgoing current took my snare a little ways and then the snare settled, i placed my rod in the rodholder and reeled in a bit to snug up my line. About 1 minute later my line went slack and started to move with the current again. I lifted my rod from the holder and started to reel in so I could cast back out and reset my snare, except it was REALLY HEAVY! I thought for sure it was a bunch of seaweed, I kept reeling expecting to see the green blob of salad. As the snare got closer I realized it was a guage buster crab all tangled up in my snare!
I repeated this process over a 1.5 hour hour time frame only to get the same result, ANOTHER CRAB!!! 9 crab later I decided that was enough to feed myself and have the neighbors over for some dinner too!
I am totally sold on these Durasnare products so much so I have ordered 6 more, some for gifts and some more for me!
It's obvious that the designer and owner of this company has put in a lot of time to perfect this product. From the stiffer loops that stay open when they're supposed to and closed to hold your catch, to the integrated weight that ensures your snare lands with the proper side up, to the bigger hook on the band that keeps the bait box closed so us fat- fingered, gloved people can open and close the bait cage!!
DURASNARE Galvanized Steel 8oz Blue Line Crab Snare
I went out for my first time shore crabbing the other day with a friend, we limited with 1 durasnare each in just a few hours. The bait cage being weighted saves you the hassle of keeping track of weights or getting tangled with your line. Another big difference compared to the typical store snares is the quality of the durasnare loops/rings. We each had 1 of the foldable traps with us as well and it wasn't even close to as effective as the durasnares. Highly recommend!
Great Snare and Excellent Service
So far so good! This is a new hobby for me; I did some research and swung into Mazama Sporting Goods, found the Durasnare, took it for a spin on the coast, and to my surprise it produced on the first cast and has become on of my more valued tools of the trade... +plus the support team is super friendly and helpful in answering my questions! -Cam@mcenzieoverland
Long time California fisherman here. Started using these snares this season and have been awesome products. They have produced me tons of crab so far and I look forward to using the new model that recently came out.
Super fast shipping, high-quality snares. Much better than my old ones.
