The best backing I've ever used. The orange is a differnt color then fly making it easy to see when you are getting into the backing
It Makes sense -
By: JackLN from on line
I've never been lucky enough to hook a fish the took me to the backing. I bought this line because because it looks good and because if I ever do hook a fish that takes a lot of line, color contrast will let me know when I'm getting close to the backing. As long as I'm not using bright orange fly line, it just makes sense to me.
Not good! -
By: Bogus1 from Sweden
I bought the fluorescent backing from Orvis, I thought it would match the quality of their other products. It was a disappointment. After two fishingtrips in Baltic sea, I took it of and dumped it in the trash bin. It discoloured my fly line and that is not what I expected.
Great Backing -
The backing is great. It fits well on the reels and is color fast. Is color makes it easy to track your line and know when you've reached the backing when the fish wants to run. Highly recommended.
Orange is lucky -

Use it on all my reels. I take it off after a tip and clean and put it back and it like new.

I ordered the Hi-Vis Dacron backing and am happy quite with the product so far. I like the orange color to give my reel a little POP.

I've been using this backing for several years in both 20lb and 30lb . Its great! it stores exceptionally well on the reel spools, doesn't rot and is color fast. On the stream its very easy to see and track your line.
