Will be getting the powell 703cb, which is mainly going to be used for cranks down to 12-15ft, traps, squarebill and topwaters. which gear ratio should i pair this up with, a 5:5-1 or the standard 6:4-1??

I'm disappointed in you LMG!!! You forgot to mention which Shimano reel to buy. :laugh5:

I'd suggest the standard Zillion.6.3:1 or the Z200H 6.4:1. :wav:

I fish a topwater and jerkbaits with the same reel I use for cranking, a Daiwa Alphas. You can find the US version, TD-Sol, on the used or like new market. They are 5.8:1, 23" per turn.

I was using a Daiwa Fuego, but now have an Abu 1600C on one rod (both 6.3:1), and am going to try a new-2-me TD-Z 103ML on another rod (5.7:1). Trying to make my Sol a finesse reel.

Just match it to the right rod, and it's good to go. I can fling peanut sized cranks plenty far enough on a AVC70MM. Lighter plastics are easy enough on a AVC69MLXF.

Thanks. What line are you using?

The ipt is the crucial factor, between manufacturer and series within the manufacturer reels there can be a significant variation of ipt with similar gear ratio. Abu's reels are like this a 6.3/1 brings in 30ipt on the C4, but the Revo with a 6.4/1 only brings in 26ipt. Good luck

Pflueger Patriarch in a 6.4:1 gear ratio will do almost anything you ask of it. Great reel.
