For instance, I can spool my 101 Chronarch casting my 8" Lunker Punker, not so much with jointed hard baits, soft baits like the 8" Hudd is a bit ify on that reel, so I use the 301 for those. The 6" baits can be tossed with a 100, or 200 sized reel.

mainly because i want to be able to keep the swimbait going nice n slow, and keeping a realistic movement with the swimait
which i feel the lower powered 5.x gear ration help you achieve
LMB: 6 3
SMB: 2 10

Going to purchase a setup for mainly soft swimbaits and start tinkering in that department of fishing. What gear ratio reel do many of you use, or any other specific tips on selecting the right reel?
I use a Shimano Citica 200DSV , 6.2:1 gear ratio and it does a great job.
