Hatch size comparison to Dacron backing.
(note: These are general sizes for Dacron..Sizes do vary between manufacturers)
Note: How much do I need? Consider these facts...
Reel manufacturers generally give you maximum specifications of backing capacity and in many cases these numbers are over-inflated...Just like gas mileage figures on new cars...to look more attractive they are generally the absolute maximum they can be...You'll likely experience less than these figures. So before you request the maximum specification of backing yards please ask yourself this; How much do I really need for the intended purpose of the reel I am purchasing? Personally I find that over-stuffed reels are an aggravation on the water and takes away from the pleasure I wish to pursue.
