I recently purchased a fusion king puller that is supposed to be rated for 100lbs. I used it for the first time last saturday and it struggled to bring in single and double pot sets in 2-3' chop.
Before you ask.... Battery was fully charged and being charged while operating. And I had the the rope straight while pulling (boat in gear hovering over pots).
Do any of you use the larger/newer version of the Fusion King puller that is rated for 120lbs? How about the Brutus ACE Pot puller? What kind of pull capacity in "real life" experience should I expect from these little pullers?
I do understand that 3' rises and falls with the waves creates forces that I can't even guess to actuall weight the puller needs to fight.
My goal was to run 2-double pot lines and 1 single.
Also note I run floating line with no weight in pots. No issues with lost pots.
