Question

Gear Ratio

I want a left hand 25 but gear ratio is super low which makes inches per turn low. Is there anything I can do to up the recovery speed to somewhere around 40 inches per turn?

Per the Manufacturer. Unfortunately, you can not change the gear ratio on this reel and make the line recovery more inches per turn.
