Default thoughts on the PWO carbs/pro ratio

All- have read all over about the "correct" ratio of carbs/protein in a PWO shake. A long time ago, I started doing a 50g whey and 50g 50/50 maltodextrin/dextrose shake. So I'm running a 1:1 ratio. For me, any more than 50g carbs and I have a major crash about 1-2 hours later, regardless of the meal, and regardless of how long and heavy or short and light my workout is.
Because that's my ceiling for carbs, if I were to do a 2-1 or 3-1 ratio, I'd have much less protein, but I feel like it's a key time to grab some extra protein, especially during a bulk (which I'm about to start back on in a few weeks).
So the question is, is the ratio that important? Or is it just making sure I've got enough carbs in there to support repair/recovery immediately PWO?
