Lift Motors/Gearing

What Internal Motor gearing and lift setup do you use?

I am using 6 high speed motors on a 5:1 gear ratio for my lift.
The claw is currently comprised of pneumatics for the clamping power.
It doesn’t need rubber bands atm, but if I see an improvement by using them i’ll post up here.

What would you guys recommend? What do people in your areas use?

(My robot has a two bar linkage)

8 high speed motors 1:5 is our setup
