RIO's premium 65lb, 8 carrier backing is made of the finest materials from Japan. 8 Strands of tightly woven fibers makes for a round backing that stacks perfectly on the fly reel. The result is a stronger, softer and smoother performing backing.

The bright multi-colored backing changes color every 10 meters and compliments fly reels with a beautiful splash of color and functionality. The breaking strain and diameter make this a perfect choice for all fishing, from pan fish to ultra-big game such as GTs, billfish and Tarpon.

"Backing Installation issue"

Joseph Wilson on 12/4/2023 11:56:19 AM

Review: Material is great! Backing was wound WAY too loose. The backing buried up in the underlying line. Had to strip it off and rewind all 300 yards. Took way too much time. When I called they offered to send a label to shop it back and they would redo it. I didn’t have time for that. Besides, I didn’t have a great deal of trust it would turn out any better.

Review: Well, at least that's what it makes me feel when I take a look at this backing. For full disclosure, I only licked it once and it tastes nothing like Sherbet...though, it does tastes better than Crayons. I love this backing because it's slightly thinner than typical Dacron, so you can put more on, or leave more room for the rest of your line set up. Though it's thinner, it has more strength. However, if you need to splice, you won't be able to. I've never tried, but I read that while doing my DD... More details
