I had a old green curado in 3.8 to 1 that I used to murder bass on. Never understood why it worked so well, but it did. I would love to see a aldebaran size model in this ratio.

I like the 6.3:1, but I would rather have a lower gear than a higher one.

1/4 oz. Rattle Trap with my Calcutta DC100 is my favorite.

I use a KastKing Royale for rattle traps and crankbaits. I am waiting for them to come out with another lower speed reel for that application. They had a White Max, I think it was, but it's been discontinued. I would rather have a 5.X:1 for lipless cranks, but the 6.3:1 works well, too. I just slow down my retrieve a bit and get the same results.

I prefer faster reels. I rip a lot of lipless baits so the fast reel helps me pick up the slack line in a hurry.

I use 8.1:1 T3 SV because I like burning 1/2 oz lipless baits over shallow grass. It’s also a good gearing for rippin them off the bottom in deeper water. Same ratio and techniques I use for swim jigs. I switch between the two depending on the conditions.
