DetailsExcellent value for money economy backing.
Its low diameter makes it perfect when extra capacity is required!
Fly line backing serves two basic purposes...
The first is to fill up your reel so that your fly line completes the filling of your reel to within, say, 1/8th inch of the spool capacity.
The second is to still stay connected when a big fish strips of all your fly line!
For most purposes, the No Frills backing is perfectly adequate as a trout backing line. If you require a stronger line, say for salmon fishing,then you should consider another backing line.
If you are using small reels and have limited space for the backing but require a long length of it for big fish - then, again, you require one of the more advanced backings.
If you want to reduce tangling with backing and have a seamless, no-knot connection then choose one of the braided backings.

Backing? Needs to be strong enough to deal with a feisty fish that strips your line out to the bare bones of your reel.
Let's face it, this is only ever going to happen in the UK on a handful of occasions for the recreational angler. A red letter day isn't going to happen very often.
Colourful backing isn't going to land more fish either. For the purposes of normal river and lake/loch angling, this product is perfect and at a reasonable price point too.
It's manufactured in the UK as well, so it's not a case of what more do you want? But what more do you need?

- In the cheaper range of backing this is as good as any. Great price, comparable with anything on the market. I use it for my lesser used lines and opt for the more expensive stuff for those lines which I use frequently. Review by Wee Bobby (Created 13/03/2015)
