                               Catch 365

                                               "Hi Speed or Low"
Gear ratios are important to consider when buying a reel. The gear ratio is the number of times the spool rotates around with one complete turn of the handle.
As a general rule of thumb:
High gear ratios (over 6 to 1) are great for lures that require fast retrieves, but often are somewhat lacking in power.
Low gear ratios (under 5 to 1) pack a lot of power and torque, but are lacking if it is necessary to get kind back on the reel quick.
