Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.
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.

Exactly my approach as well. Bulletproof.
100BPV Chronarch 21 IPT 7' Cumara reaction on one on my setups.
Daiwa fuego and Lami 705 is the other
Catch fish not feelings!!
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.
