PG VS XG VS HG ?

MAXMELL
Hi guys im intending to get a fishing reel and i have tried to google it online but i still dont quite understand....
Im buying a reel for myself mostly used for pond fishing. 
Which reel would fit pond fishing?

PG / XG / HG? 

Please advise thanks

    PG = Power Gear (Jigging and "Bottom") 
    HG = High Gear (Shore Jigging and High Speed Jigging) 
    XG = Extra Gear (Popping and when you need to retrieve at very high speeds)

    Is it possible that I use a HG reel and use it for bottom fishing? Because there's only HG available for the model I want :( tp 8000 hg

    ​What sized weight are you using? Yes you can use a HG. The only PG I use is a 10,000 PG.

    if u r fishing shallow waters <50m deep , u can use pg,hg,xg, no issue

    for me I just buy hg for versatility, I use it for popping,vertical jigging, horizontal jigging

    Spinning reel is not ideal for bottom. Cranking a >J10 sinker is tiring. OH is better and there are many avail below $200

    What is your budget? even a conventional would prove difficult if the gear ratio is wrong. Try to buy a used jigger 4000, ratio 4.1.1, nothing more powerful
  • AGV
    PG = low gear ratio powerful but slow
    HG = faster gear ratio but retrieve speed faster 
    XG = Fastest gear ratio , fastest retrieve speed in the same model.

    Example 5.1.1 = slow but power
                    5.6.1 = middle 
                     6.2.1 = fast but compromise on power
    If I am not wrong = 5.1 rotor turn = 1 handle rotation and respectively . 

    Personally I am a lurer , I play buzz bait ... so XG always my choice .

    Same I almost exclusively use XG speeds, I just have to focus when retrieving slowly.
