7:1:1 reels

Recommended Posts

hey guys what do you use the 7's for? i was given one brand new (cabellas pro something lol) and i was gonna use it for buzz baits since you need a higher speed to keep them on top. what else can use that higher speed reel for? cranks? thanks guys

I use 7's for pitching jigs & soft plastics, burning a spinnerbait or a buzzbait and a carolina rig.

I have a friend who is a great crankbait fisherman and he uses a 7 gear ratio for that, but the norm for cranking is a 5 or lower.

nice thanks fellas... i guess you could milk the 7.1 slow enough to where the cranks arent skipping on top lol

A 7 ain't that much faster really.  It is a significant change but it wont skip a bait on the top of the water either.

You can really use a 7 for just about anything except deep crankbaiting.

Jigs, Beavers, ALL PLASTICS except finesse techniques, buzzbaits, spinnerbaits, senkos, anything t-rigged, frogs.
