High Speed Gear Ratios for Everything Bass

It’s tough to argue with success, so when Elite Series AOY Champion Aaron Martens says that 23 of his 25 boat-based casting reels are 8.5:1, we listen. We think you’ll find this extended talk session interesting too.

Aaron Martens lays out his reasons for fishing high speed reels for everything. When he speaks of high speed, we’re talking faster than 8.1:1.
