Anchoring traps in clay

My new trapping area is largely clay or rocky soil so am looking for the best option to keep my MB-550's anchored - I have been a huge fan of the Fox Hollow Super stakes in harvested corn/bean fields but tend to always leave a nasty trap circle so had considered going to a shock spring system.
Thoughts ...

The pleasure of what we enjoy is lost
by only wanting more

The super stakes will work in clay. I would always try to test my anchoring system out at new areas if possible before season as the worst thing on opening day is the walk of shame back to the truck because your system didnt work.

Your not going to get rid of catch circles unless you start putting 6+ feet of chain on your traps.

X 2. Plus a catch circle is showing the land owner Your doing what you said you would do. Catching critters, and helping him out. John
