Spinning reel with 7:1 gear ratio?

Recommended Posts

I do not think they make a 7:1 spinning reel. If they do, I have never seen one. One thing to keep in mind is line retrieval per crank aka inches per turn. A 1000 size shimano will take up just about as much line per crank than a 7:1 baitcaster. (28"). Check fish.shimano.com for all the specifications on each reel and you can compare inches per turn of a spinning reel and baitcaster. Also, just one step up to a 2500 series increases the line pick up to roughly 34" per crank. I hope this helps.

Yeah my Symetre 2500 spinning reel is a 6.2:1 and takes up 35 inches per crank where my Curado is a 7.0:1 and takes up 30 inches per crank.

Later, :)

How do you like the Symetre? I was thinking about getting one of those.

The Symetre is smooth and solid.  It's a great reel, and I'm sure you will be happy with it.

It is an awesome and very solid and smooth reel.  Really love the new one piece bail.  Very very good reel.

You will NOT be disappointed. This is what I call the workman's reel with some class. Never failed me and still running strong, smooth, and silent.
