    We have a Pool Blaster Fusion that we got at Costco that works well. The pole attachment seems to be a weak point though. We will probably get the Max when this one dies.

    I have a Catfish which is a smaller version of the PB max but I only use it for the spa as I have a robot for the pool. Works great.
