Best Deal Around
This high-steppin, hip-dressin fly fishing fella has shopped all around and found this to be the best deal on backing you'll find anywhere. Basic white is always suitable on any water you might want to fish. Buy this backing and show the world you know what you'e doing.

As good as the rest
Does the job well. This line ties nicely and is a good value for the quantity.
I purchased the 20 lb spool and have not got into it in the field yet but so far it has performed well. Holds a knot well and is easy to tie and use.
I used this backing coupled to a Scientific America WF-5x line and a 9 ft orvis mirage 4x tippet. So far it is a nice combo.

Excellent for the price. Great for those not needing a whole spool of level line.

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.
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.
