When people talk of 2 inch traps, are they talking lip to lip, or the extremities of the entire trap with ...teeth...spines? (I need to learn some terminology)

@sanguinearocks101 The thing I don't understand is if they are measuring just the meaty bit of the trap, or the meaty bit, plus the eyelashes :)

Do people say this is 35mm or 45mm?

I realize some business will just say whatever they want, but I figure many are reputable.
