I had the same experience with a funnel / filter.

And you really need to have the wort chilled before it gets to the funnel. I'm looking to keep the hops out of my chiller

Same, as well. The pellets are the worst culprits of strainer clog and when I did my first batch, I had pellets and a fine mesh strainer. I was quite worried about sanitation due to the frequent strainer cleaning.
