Rated 5 out of 5 by Lead core backing I used it for lead core backing on a Penn 210 reel. Worked fine. May 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fly Reel Backing Line This is a good value. Backing seems to be an overpriced item considering it generally doesn't get used. January 29, 2013

A: 
There is no easy way to determine how much backing to use on a fly reel.
Start by winding the fly line onto the reel.
Then, wind on enough backing to fill the reel.
Unwind the backing to another spool.
Unwind the fly line to a separate spool.
Wind the backing to the reel.
Tie the fly line to the backing with a nail knot.
Wind the fly line to the reel.
That's it...

A: 
The backing should be about 100 yds or more, with fly line added you would run another 85 to 100 yds.

A: 
Small fish won't take much line from a reel.
But, the reel will perform better if it is filled close to it's capacity.
The larger diameter the line on a reel, the faster the line will retrieve.
Backing will allow the reel to be filled near its full diameter.
That is why large arbor reels are popular...

A: 
That is a good question. It will depend on your reel. Most fly lines are in the 82 - 85 ft range. Basicaly you do not want to much string on the reel. Only about 2/3 or a little better of the reel should be filled. If you string can handle some backing then its a good idea. It helps make the inner loop a bit larger giving the string less chance of a tight memory. Another thought is that if you get a fish that wants to run hard then the 85 ft fly line can run out quickly, The backing is very strong and can give you plenty of extra room for a good fish to run.

A: 
Probably not, but backing effectively enlarges the size of the reel leaving larger and fewer loops.

A: 
The Fly Line Backing is hollow, so it is oval, not round. The 20# is ~.015-.020" (about 1/64" average), the 30# is ~.020-.025" (a bit under 1/32"). The 30# is best for all but the smallest reels with the lightest fly lines (1-2 weight?).

A: 
This is fly line BACKING not to be confused with fly LINE. Backing is spooled on first then the fly line ( level, tapered,floating,sinking, etc.) is attached to the backing with a blood knot. then the fly line is spooled on.

Well, it's backing line but I assume from its density that it would sink slowly.

A: 
Fly line backing is neither floating or sinking line. It's backing for your floating or sinking flyline and takes up the extra space on your reel.
