Best underwrap -
By: Smokinjoe from Long Island Surf
I use this as an underwrap when using expensive braid on my surf reel. The larger diameter fills quickly and the orange color looks great.

I had this but on my reel for fishing steelhead in the Great Lkaes and it has held up to many strong fish. This backing has more of a backbone than a 30 inch steelhead! Great product and would recommend to anyone.

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.
