    Big Jon - Max Weight Ball

    What is the maximum recommended weight for rigger balls to use with Big Jon Captians Paks?

    Any negative experiences with heavy weights?
    See you on the water,

    12# is max per Big Jon. Will be slow if you don't have the "pro" model motors. Booms are not designed for heavier weights,

    Ran some heavy weights, over 12 pounds and fried one motor. I don't run the arms at full length either.
