One of the most important things to consider when purchasing your baitcaster is gear ratio. Gear ratio simply means, the number of revolutions of the spool per turn of the reel handle. This determines how much line comes in per turn of the handle. For instance, in a 7.3:1 gear ratio, the last number (1) will always represent a 360-degree turn of the reel handle. The first two numbers (7.3) represent the number of revolutions of the spool per handle revolution. So for our example, for every 360-degree rotation of the handle, the spool will rotate 7.3 times. Sometimes other angler's might ignore the second number in the gear ratio and just call each reel a 5 speed for a 5.3:1, 6 speed for a 6.6:1 and so on.
Because braid is lighter and tighter on a spool and the line diameter is often much smaller than monofilament or fluorocarbon, you can get away with less brakes on your reel, giving you greater distance and better efficiency. So keep that in mind. Turn down the brakes with braid and turn them up slightly with fluoro or mono. Eventually you want to turn them all down to achieve maximum distance.
But the best part about this baitcasting reel is the fact that it can be used with any fishing line thanks to its ceramic insert-line guide. Moreover, it features a rubber cork handle that is slip resistant with a soft-touch and over-sized knobs to provide anglers comfortable grip even when it is wet. But what really makes it light in weight is its carbon construction for the handle, side plates and the body.

In this section, I’ll outline the key features (components) you should be looking for in quality baitcasting reel. Baitcasting components are similar to spinning reels; drag system, gear ratios, bearings, etc, but the baitcaster has larger variations of these components. For example, they have a higher gear ratio than the spinning reel. Lastly, based on this research and personal testing I’ll outline my best baitcasting reels for the year (both low profile and round reels).

   This TATULA is more likely Black Bass and Pike fishing Purpose.  I personally use TATULA for Deep dive Crank bait,  Lipless Crank, Mid size Soft Shad lure, Blade shad, Rubber jig, Texas rig, Frog game etc...  I would say this TATULA is all around reel for French water purpose.  And This TATULA had 4 different gear ratio. So, You can choise it for differrent purpose.  I usellay use 5.4:1 for Super deep Crank bait, 6.3:1 for Crank bait and Spinnerbait, 7.3:1 for Soft shad lure and Texas rig and 8.1:1 for Heavy Texas and Frog game. 
More Control– Baitcasting reel combos provide a high degree of casting control compared to spinning gear because you can control the distance and speed of your lure by thumbing the spool during the cast. Once you become proficient in their use, you can achieve pinpoint accuracy with your casts, allowing you to place your lure exactly where the fish are.
To bring in big game fish successfully, you need one of the best baitcasters with powerful specifications to handle striped bass, steelhead, musky, blue cats, and other saltwater species. The Goture Ares-Max is a heavy duty reel with powerful features suitable for both freshwater and saltwater fishing, as it is built to withstand harsh saltwater conditions.
The stainless-steel ball bearings in the base model are average, but again in looking at the price point of this reel they’re certainly on par for me. The gear ratio for the models are all different 100P = 5.4:1, 100H = 6.3:1, 100HS = 7.3:1. For a baitcaster I always recommend a minimum of 6:0:1 gear ratio, so I’d certainly recommend the 100H or 100HS in this case.

It’s a low-profile caster that had a cut-brass gear system with a multi-disk carbon fiber drag system that delivers 17.5-pounds of drag and a dual-brake system that’s designed to deliver professional level casting control. Another great feature designed into this reel is its 11+1 MaxiDur ball bearings that are corrosion resistant and manufactured to not only deliver smooth casting but to also make this reel more durable.

I go fishing a few times a week, and was looking for another reel to have another baitcaster setup. I currently have 2 Abu Garcia BlackMax 6.4:1 reels and some spinning setups, but was looking at trying something different. Between the high rating and the price, I thought I'd give this a try. The KastKing was not only $20+ cheaper, but also outperforms the Abu Garcias on every level - Less backlashes, smoother reeling, further casting distances. I'm just so happy with this reel, and can't wait to try out some of the other ones and ratios from KastKing.
