thanks for info. why would you be concerned about cranking speed if it's live bait set up?I spooled mine with 330yds 50# Berkley X9 braid plan on using short 30 & 40# leaders. 4.8 gears (23 ipt) might be kinda slow for this reel due to its small diameter These reels work great with 6:1 (28 ipt).
If a fish makes a run towards The boat you gotta be able to keep the line tight. Might be hard with the 4.8 gears. I fish my torque 12 & 15 with stock 6:1 gears and torque 25n with 4.8 gears these are all live bait setups mostly used for flylining baits.thanks for info. why would you be concerned about cranking speed if it's live bait set up?
