Who makes a low ration casting reel today? All I can find are 7:1 to 10:1. I am looking for a 3.8:1 up to a 5:1. Want something to throw big deep diving cranks. Thanks

Would you be more specific? I can't find them, especially in my favorite brand, Shimano. Thanks

Old school Lew's BB1N was one of the best crank bait reels ever made. 4.9 ratio and casts a mile with almost no backlash. The earliest models were made by Shimano, and later by Ryobi. Quality is the same. You can find a clean one on Evil-Bay for less than $100. I think the U spool casts better than the V spool. Replace the original spool bearing with a ceramic bearing and you'll really be impressed.
