if its the numbers like-60 ,70 ,6000, 7000 then its the size of the reel. 60 and 6000 would be the same(i think).


if it the numbers like 5.3:1 or 4.8:1 then its the amount of times the spool turns with every full turn of the reel so 5.3:1, the spool would turn 5.3 times every time you wound the handle a full turn
