Best glide speed, glide ratio.

Hello,I was wondering what some of you experienced highlander pilots found works best for best glide speed. I understand that no two are created equal but what attitude and speed gives you the best results? Also has anyone calculated their glide ratio and what did you come up with? I've searched and found no answers. Thanks to whoever replies.
