I found this confusing until I realized that when you used the words
"higher" and "lower", you meant numerically.  When I hear "higher"
I think "less reduction, faster speed", and when I hear "lower" I
think "more reduction, slower speed".  If you think like me, reverse
Dave's "lower" and "higher" ;-).
