Would it be worth it to change the high gear on an Avet 50 to 4 to 1. Apparently Avet will sell the parts for $50 to change the ratio. I have a 50 SDS that I haven't really put in a bind yet but it seems like it might be helpful for when you want to move line faster. Don't think it changes the low ratio. Any thoughts?....Fred

I think it would be cool to have the low ratio set as the high ratio that is currently on it and then make the convert to a higher ratio on the high ratio. That being said, I am pretty happy with the speed of the retrieve on my 50w's

I was just thinking, the high speed is 3.2 to 1 and moving it up to 4 to 1 would be a 25% increase in speed. You'd still have the winch when you needed it.
