Sorry if this is a dumb question. I do not know a lot about how reels operate.

I have one and really like it, but I want to speed it up and use it for a flipping and pitching reel since it re-engages the spool when you depress the thumb button. The 6.3:1 is decent, but I am curious if it can be increased?

This is from another forum I follow. Detailed breakdown of the Mettle)from 2012 so maybe some slight changes since then). Doesn't look like it is feasible to do the upgrade for that reel as the Menace or Manic is in the same price range and has a 7:1:1.
