Why are pullups so damn hard???

Hi guys! Complete novice here. Wondering if anyone else seems to agree that pullups are harder to make progress on than lets say dips. I am making leaps and bounds progress on dips but pullups not so much. A little backround. I have recently bought a gravitron assisted pullup,dip machine. Honestly...

Choose one, Shredded or Big?

Just curious as to what folks preferences are. Would you prefer to be leaner with less muscle but shredded. OR Bigger with greater mass but not shredded, smooth. Obviously to have both would be ideal, but if you had to choose one over the other which would it be?
