How big of a catfish can this reel handle

Asked by: Morris
This reel could handle Catfish up to 40 pounds. It could handle even larger Catfish with the right drag setting and right skills in fighting a large fish.

How would you compare this to your 888 reel?  What is the difference?   The 888 drag systems strength is amazing.   Is this reels drag even stronger? 

Asked by: Slick1980
Everything is the same (including the drag) except for the following 3 features: 1) Big Cat XT has a Titanium-Nitride coated Spinnerhead for smoother retrieve and enhanced wear resistance. 2) Big Cat XT has 3+1 bearings compared to 2+1 on the 888. 3) Big Cat XT has a soft touch handle knob for a more comfortable effortless retrieve. Where 888 was our most premium 808 reel before, Big Cat XT spincast is now at the top of the chain.

Hey guys! I was just wondering how well this reel would hold up for bowfishing? I currently use the 808 and it works flawlessly! I was just looking at trying something new. Never hurts to have more than one!

Asked by: turtletomahawk
For Bowfishing we would recommend our 808 Bowfisher
