Faster gears? They don't have any. The 2-speed in high gets 6" more per crank 36" vs 30" (6.3:1 gear ratio vs 5.3:1).

my SX has been the goto reel this reel for the tiny deens and 20# floro.
If you need more line per turn, try the mxj or call Avet.

    Try an Accurate BV-300 if you want a tiny reel that gets 38" per crank. I have both the SXJ and the BV-300. My BV-300 has 300 yds of 50# Maxcuatro and kicks ass!

    Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
    The high gear in the 2-speed SX is faster than the single speed. But there are no faster gears available, and the diameter of the spool is so small that you just can't get much line per crank. A 6.3:1 JX is much faster but a much larger reel, too
