    Somebody just gave me a great big new Daiwa Jupiter spinning reel. On the spool it lists up to 17 lb test. As far as the size of the reel goes it looks big enough for catfishing, but I don't know how tough it is. It appears to be a fairly low-cost reel.

    Would this reel be tough enough for big flatties, or should I find another use for it?

    Thanks for your help.

    It should be enough for catfishing, I dont see why not.
