    im liking the low gear on the new silver 20sea makaira with 13" per turn does this low gear only apply to the silver version. I want the blue mak with the low gear

    I don't think color matters, silver, gunmetal, blue. Maybe someone can clarify

    It’s the SEa, not the color.

    John, as long as it’s a SEA it will be the same. The only ones with a higher gear will be the gold ones with a marlin on the side plate.

    You can get the those updated to SEa specs for very little money.

    Yep, my point was as long as its an SEa, color doesn't matter much as long as its not gold. The only color that could be a problem would be a gold one with a Marlin as it may or may not be SEa converted. Blue = good to go!

    Im used to my talica 25 where the high gear is 5.2;1 low 2.3:1
    the makaira high gear 3.8:1 is gonna feel extra torquey
    there is a time & place for the super low gear but I will use it sparingly just nice to have when really needed.

    btw I just pulled the trigger on 3 maks SEa the 16,20, & 30 all blue

    yay!! 13" per turn?

    I really dont know when to use the low gear on my mak15SEa which is 15" per turn.. too damn slow, the high speed 4.7:1 with 33" per turn is pretty torquey for anything that swims in Noth Sea of Cortez.

    If you get something big enough that you can’t turn the handle in high remember that little button on the handle that you paid extra for!

    pros & cons to each platform as far as inches per turn, power, torque etc the ability to put line back on the reel in an actual fight . for fish up to 150lbs my talicas have been stellar and actually prefered the higher low gear. I have no problem keeping tight when the fish turns & runs back at me. but also have had times in high wind or when a tuna sulks down in the depths and couldnt budge them without doing the line pull by hand, I would have appreciated a little more torque.
