Default Yeast Calculator Settings

The Brewers Friend Calc and a few others have a target pitch rate drop box with a myriad of selections. The default is Pro Brewer .75 Ale below that is Manufacturers Suggested rates and above is Pro Brewer 1.0 High Gravity
Probrewer 1.25 High Gravity etc... What is the difference and what should I be using?

I have brewed a few 1.060-.070 so I just arbitrarily chose the probrewer .75 High Gravity.

thanks that is exactly what I was looking for! I must've missed it somehow.
