Rectangular traps are @ 5bucks.
Bento with weighs are @ 3bucks.
They don't bring in bento w/o weighs anymore.
Circular traps are not available yet.

Ropes also can be bought @ 6 (a bundle) or 2 dollars (loose batches) (quite a lot trust me) I bought the loose batches, I felt that it's more then enuff. (Material is like NS issue the roll of nylon ropes)
You can also buy the lousy ropes @ mama shop for about 50cent-1dollar, it comes in different color, red, yellow, red etc. Also in bundles, ( 100percent lousy plastic material) but I've try tying that to the bento before (it works but u just got a gut feeling of it tearing up by itself if u make a small cut).

When there about 11am++ the shop sells lots of ropes you can't miss it if u walk throughout the whole stretch of tackle shops. They do not sell rods,reels etc, they are beside joe's tackle if I can remember properly lol.
Joe's tackle also sells the rectangular trap ( same pricing )

Hope this helps those that wana try out! It's pretty cheap as u can see. Less then 10bucks and u can start crabbing!!

Thanks for the update on the bento trap prices, it's a pity they don't come with the lead weights anymore, it can be useful when there is current and helps the trap to land on its base.
