Not sure what the ratios mean? Gear ratios are easy to understand once you have a handle on what the numbers mean. 6.3:1? 5.2:1? 8:1? The number before the colon denotes the rotations the spool makes per one complete turn of the reel's handle. So a 6.3:1 ratio means the spool revolves 6.3 times with each handle turn. The larger the first number, the more line retrieved on each crank.
