RIO’s traditional Dacron braided backing features high strength and low stretch and is unsurpassed in quality.
Good compromise between thinness and the ability to make blind splice loops
Easier to knot than brands that are very thin but have too tight a weave for a blind splice loop
Fly Line Backing….Yes, You Need It
Ordered my Ross Animas reel and the great folks at Stillwater loaded the backing onto my reel for me. It’s rare that I ever get into my backing, however for those times that I do, it’s good to know that I have a high quality product like RIO Fly Line Backing on my reel to allow me to land that fish.
