I assume these high gear ratios are mostly born out of the pimping done on the fishing shows?


Tight Lines!

That's what people want now
Same with many other things
Can't buy a truck anymore with a vinyl bench
seat and a rubber floor mat instead of carpeting,
or manual roll up windows, etc.

Helps to quickly get a fish out of thick cover.

Also helps get the bait back to you quicker for the next cast. I bought one to try for my jig rod and it seems to work well for that purpose.

I haven’t noticed a reduction in torque as some have warned.

No they’re used to get the fish moving quicker and to not let the fish have a chance to turn its head

To the OP:

You hit right on the head, buddy.

Sounds like it is working.
