High-capacity gel-spun fly line backing
This is the preferred high-capacity gel-spun backing for big game angling. Orvis maximum strength fly line backing provides up to 60% more capacity than Dacron®. The 30-lb. test Gel-Spun Backing gives you more capacity than using 20-lb. Dacron, which is why it is the backing of choice for big-game angling. Braided from gel-spun polyethylene, this incredible fly line backing is 10 times stronger than steel in equal diameters. A very small diameter for higher yardage on the reel means slower spool rpms on runs and faster pickups.
More advantages of Gel-Spun fly line backing: It has virtually no stretch, is extremely abrasion-resistant, yet has a very low coefficient of friction so it will not damage your fly rod guides, and retains 100% of its strength while in the water. And is unaffected by UV, gas, oil, salt, or detergents. Fly line backing comes in 30- and 50-lb. test. In yellow. Made in USA.
