Quick-Sight™ Fluorescent Orange Backing

Maintain better control over a hooked fish with this flyline backing.


This high-visibility fluorescent orange flyline backing lets you see the backing in the water when a big fish takes out line in a hurry. Tested extensively by Orvis' saltwater guides, who found the flyline backing helped them know where a fish was and when it was changing direction. The round Dacron backing won't rot or mildew and stores well on the fly reel. Flyline backing available in 20, or 30 lb. test.

    Good backing - 6/27/2015

    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 - 6/23/2015
    By: 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 - 5/8/2015
    By: from Paris, France

    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 - 3/26/2015

    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 - 3/9/2015

    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.
