Out of the 3 different types of reels available, which do you prefer for catfishing. There is open spool, closed faced, and baitcast. It seems that every year the reels have gotten larger and more, so-called heavy duty, but do they perform like the manufactures say they will. I know that there are good reels out there like Abu's, Shakespears and Zebcos, but can they stand up to the abuse that large catfish can give. I like the larger Penn reels also, but to find a used one that's not rusty and neglected is like winning the lottery---I wish. So until I find a really good reel, I'm using a baitcast reel made in Australia by Silstar loaded with 75lb line.
