The Andros reel is a blast to cast. It casts FAR! I had it on a six foot rod and was throwing soft swimbaits and iron a mile. The longer rod never...
I do not think the gear is able to be swapped but I will check for you.
The Cedros rod has a softer tip than the andros rod which is pretty stiff the whole way. The 561-xxh has been a popular Alaskan halibut rod.
Ooops I got the gear ratio wrong on Friday evening. Just checked the specs on it and the high speed is 4.3:1 and the low speed in the current...
It will be 4.6 or 4.7:1 on the high gear and 1.7:1 low gear.
