I like to use a 5.1 or so gear ratio. It simply helps me fish the bait slower without having to concentrate to slow down!! I like fishing fast but with certain baits it's counter productive. Huds are one of these baits. Worst case, I wouldn't want to fish over a 6.1-6.3 gear ratio for Huds.
I'm going to emphasize what Gary has already stated. My fatal flaw when it comes to fishing Huds is poor pacing. Most of the time, fishing a Hud too fast for the conditions and water temp completely nullifies its effectiveness. For me there is no question that fishing a 5:1 reel helps me slow down and put more fish in the boat. I should be able to make the adjustment on my own but I'm just not wired up to do it, so the slower reel is a solid tool that helps me.
as fast as i can get lol . i can slowdown for retrieval but when a big one grabs it and keeps coming toward me or when one hits when im ripping it in 50+ ft of water i want as fast as a retrieve as possible . lost big fish , tournaments and aoy's because of it . doesn't happen alot but enough for me lol
