There is nothing wrong with Thompson Snares. They use what is called a Micro lock on their 3/16" cable small game snare as I have. You can catch Mink, Muskrat, Squirrel, Nutria, Rabbit and such. Nutria is a fine pelt for coats and warm blankets and here in Louisiana it is nuisance as they are destroying our wetlands. They are also good eating in gumbo.
A cable snare is modern and they all do the same thing. Catch food without a lot of caloric expenditure. This is what you need in a survival situation. One snare is only one chance at eating...12 snares almost guaranties success.
VERY IMPORTANT. I forgot to tell everyone that a snare is only good to catch one animal. The caught animal will twist the cable so bad that it will be unusable. Then you cut the parts from the cable and use them on a new piece of cable. You'll need tools for that and some end pieces, an annealed small nut works perfect.
So you see buying a single snare is not very smart.
The snare material appears to be rugged enough to do what it was designed for. I would have given this product 5 stars. However, I removed 1 star for the too small illustrations and another for not adding a couple pieces of paper showing how to use the snare in real life. After all, this is suppose to be a survival snare kit!
The wires and light cables look to be of pretty good quality. The other metal pieces also look well made. So, materially these snares look to be well made.
The instructions and illustrations are something else again. The written instructions are a bit confusing to me mainly because I've never used the metal flanges and when I tried to use them to set a loop I failed miserably. Maybe if a couple of illustrations with step-by-step instructions were included I would have done better.
The other thing about the instructions is that they are small. I had to use a magnifying glass to really read them. Once I did read them I was still uncertain as to how to make and set the loop. I'll be looking for other instructions on the 'net later on.
This kit is also good to show you what materials you can use for snares so that you can carry them down to your local hardware store and buy more materials to make more snares. The more snares you set the greater the chance of catching something. You can probably get the basic materials cheaper than this kit cost.
I would have given this five stars if not for the tiny and confusing instructions.
Bottom line, the materials are pretty rugged but the instructions are lacking.
arrived quickly and included everything it says it does.
