Before you add the maximum quantity you might want to read the note below...

We also sell Hatch premium Braided PE backing as an alternative choice. You can compare it with the chart below or view the Backing Guide link above for more information about backing.
Looking for maximum amount of backing but don't want an over-stuff your reel? Consider Hatch backing!

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 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.
