What Baitcaster Should I Use With Each Rod?

Recommended Posts

I just ordered three skeet reese rods

1) 7' crank bait rod

2) 6' 8" topwater/jerk bait rod

3) 8' flippin' pitchin' rod

mainly i was wonder what reel ratio would go best with each rod..i know certain reel ratios work best with each technique you are using im just not possitive which gear ratio works best for what

any help would be nice! Thanks a bunch everyone!

1 - low ratio, 5:1

2 - high speed, 7:1

3 - high speed, 7:1

The lower gear ratio will make it easier pulling cranks all day, especially deep cranks. The other two will benefit from being able to pick up line quicker. How much is debatable, like everything else, but I have seen improvement on what I can do since I switched.
