Easy Choice

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is a no-brainer for a great line backer and the orange color pops. Grab it, wind it and get yourself out on the water. Happy with this simple purchase.

100 yard / 20 lb

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Used the 100 yard 20 lb option on my redington rise reel to connect my fly line and to take up some volume in the reel. Works great.

have not made it there yet

Good colors. Unfortunately a fish hasn't made it that far.

Worth it for peace of mind

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Backing is great to add some diameter to your reel, especially on older reel models with a very skinny center. This helps line retrieve speed as every turn equates to more line distance. I'm also a fan of adding backing to all reels, even small stream reels as getting spooled would be a major bummer. I don't get taken into my backing often, but am always glad to have it.

Works great! Got orange in color and it is easy to see.

Does the job

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Not a lot to say here... this backing does exactly what it is supposed to, attaches your fly line to your reel. I find 100 yards of 20lb test works well in most trout applications when using rods size 4-6 or so, might need to bump up to 200 yards for 7 and up - just depending on the reel and line that you are using.

Solid Backing

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is the standard for any fly fishing rig. Dacron backing is surpassed only by gel spun backing for serious big game fly fishing so this Dacron spool will do fine for nearly 90% of your needs from panfish to trout to salt water up to about a 12 weight rig.
