Specification

The backing choice of big fish anglers. Braided from gel-spun polyethylene this ultra-thin and extremely abrasion-resistant line has virtually no stretch.

Sizes Available: 30lb & 50lb test

Colour Available: Yellow

Braided from gel-spun polyethylene, this incredible fishing line backing is 10 times stronger than steel in equal diameters. A very small diameter for higher yardage on the fly reel means slower spool rpms on runs and faster pickups.

Gel-Spun has virtually no stretch, is extremely abrasion resistant, yet has a very low coefficient of friction so fishing line backing will not damage your fly rod's guides, and retains 100% of its strength while in the water. Unaffected by UV, petrol, oil, salt, or detergents.
