Can the KOBO Power Reel pull a dredge?
Yes, the spool capacity can hold over 500' of 800lbs Momoi HC.  Dredges come in varying sizes, with over 100lbs of drag and over 60/90 lbs of pulling force (12V and 24V) the KOBO Power Reel has pulled all dredges we have tested.  We have tested everything from 7 inch 6 arm squid dredges to Triple 8-Arm Tier Drop Dredge 36in-24in-18in.  The triple tier dredge consisted of an 8lb fish weight, 20 Mullet (9.5" - 10.5") with 3oz chin weights, artificials to fill out the rest of the positions, and mud flaps trailing while pulled at +7kts.
