Any of the Abu Garcia's denoted as "winch" have a lower gear ratio designed for more cranking power. They carry this denotation across their models from the Orra, Revo, to the round baitcasters.

I haven't seen the "winch" designation on any of my reels. Any of the reels that specify ratios in the 5s are going to be low ratio.

Above picture is what I was referring to. You might also consider that a reel can have a relatively high inches per turn even with a 5.x:1 gear ratio, in which case you may be retrieving quicker than intended. To simplify, that's why you might consider the winch reels, since they are specifically designed for crank baits.

Lews has a low speed reel that won't break the bank and will last for years (http://www.lews.com/casting-tournamentmb.php). They also have one of the lowest speeds in a baitcaster you can find (5.1:1) It's the BB1 Pro model a little pricey but they are excellent reels! http://www.lews.com/casting-bb1pro.php

For the large deep divers I use a round reel. I prefer Abu Garcia C3 just pick your size based on line capacity your looking for. Shimano has a couple nice models. Go to Tacklewarehouse and compare them.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Daiwa-Prolite-PL-100-Level-Wind-Bait-Casting-Fishing-Reel-Japan-/142218756238?hash=item211ce6008e:g:3hEAAOSw6DtYT0SD I have 4 that I use All for different reasons, Not that I don't use a higher ratio but these tend to get the reaction bite when other ratios don't IMO

These are what I use for my low gear ratio for big crankbaits. Or 5.1:1
