Just experiment and see what you like. You’re not going to hurt anything.

I like them for hollow belly swim baits, easy to overwork them on faster reels.

I use it for most types of swim baits.  If I'm not actively paying attention to my retrieve speed, I tend to reel to fast for a swim-bait if I'm using a higher speed reel.  I use the 5.4 to kind of force me to slow down.

Good for slow rolling baits on the bottom like spinnerbaits and big soft swimbaits. It's much easier than cranking a high speed reel for one turn every 5-10 seconds.
