Great purchase -
By: parlour52 from Wallingford, Oxfordshire UK
I received this a few days after ordering and was very pleased with the purchase. Usual excellent service and product from Orvis.
Good backing -
If you're seeking fish that take you into your backing and prefer dacron, it's worth a little extra for the Hi-Viz orange. Good product.
Great backing for any reel -
By: baseball4life26 from Maryville Missouri
the backing is great and can hold nice fish. I have used it on my two weight and my eight weight. It was probably overkill on the two but it's what I had and it worked awesome!
Excellent customer service -

Not much you can say about backing line apart from it's the usual high quality you'd expect from Orvis. More impressive was the customer service. I ordered the line over the phone a few days after having ordered a spare spool and when being told that it was too late to include the second purchase with the first shipment I expected to be charged p&p again. But no, I was told that this would not be the case by a very friendly lady - cool. Wouldn't get that kind of approach in France where I live!
Penny wise investment -

A lot of us rarely, if ever, see the backing come off the spool so its great to have this bright orange to wake us up - not that the flailing at the end of the line isn't enough. I really prefer this to the white backing that came on another reel I had - its a minor difference that makes the distinction.
Great product for a sensible price -

Does what is says on the tin. A high quality braid at a sensible price. Looks fit for years of service in tough conditions.

Purchased this backing to put on a Clear Water II reel for a 6wt Orvis Frequent Flyer rod. I like the color contrast and it gives me an indication of where the fish is going. Also will not bury itself like gel spun backing.
