I am an Atlantic salmon fisherman and for years I used the conventional 20lbs backing... Now, I used this 30lbs Gel-spun which is 50% stronger but 50% thinner in diameter, allowing me to store almost 40% more backing.

This stuff is incredibly thin, but strong, it is just what I needed as my line can only take a limited amount of backing, that can be achieved with this ultra thin backing..
Good Backing. -

When fishing for those tropical fish, bonefish , permit, tarpon etc this is the backing you want on your reel. Now wouldn't use any other product has been reliable for many a year. Very good diameter for strength get maximum backing on your reel. Don't go fishing without this product.
Looks good, havent tested yet -

Unfortunately I cant comment specifically on how the gel spun backing works with a fish on yet, however the line feels very strong and is wound on the reel nicely, I purchased 200 yds of the backing, which I anticipate will suffice for the 30lb Atlantic salmon I plan on catching at the Flowers River in Labrador Canada next week. I ordered this fly-line backing based on a recommendation from a friend. The backing arrived within 5 business of ordering, professionally packed. Thank you ORVIS, I look forward to future orders.
It works great -

I like buying from a company that helps the fishing world so much. The Gel spun is a great product.

Santa brought me this, a new sinking tip line, and a new extra spool for Christmas. It was just what I need in addition to my floating line for chasing the striped bass up here near Portsmouth, NH. This addition should help me go from the surf to the rocky shores. I can't wait for spring!
Backing Favorite -
By: Hulahoop from Eastern Oregon
Good strength and compact on the spool. I like the white for visability when lining out on a run. Knots have been tight without any worry. Considering he lower price than the other colors this is a good value.
Best backing -

I really like how much backing can be added to smaller capacity reels. It is also super strong and will not let you down.
