No Electradyne this time,
I can buy a Scotty Line Puller for $500 locally or an Ace Line Hauler for $599 plus an additional $69 for the hands free option. This is going on a skiff to pull crab rings from 125' and crab pots and shrimp from 150-600'
My son is 7 and my daughters are 2 and 5 and they all love boating and crabbing. I am leaning towards the Ace Line Hauler with the hands free because the Scotty Line Puller requires you to constantly pull and as a capstan head you could get a knot, but the Scotty line puller could do double duty as my anchor puller for halibut.
Ez-Pullers, Safety Pullers (our family has 3 Safety Pullers and they are great) and the ED are all a whole other step up in pricing to be thought of in this buying scenario.
Thoughts? Scotty or Ace? OR do people really hate their Scotties or Aces? I know there are lot of Ace fans out there and I am leaning in that direction.
