Product Details
Hatch has created a backing material that has the touch and feel of Dacron combined with the strength and diameter of Gel Spun in a single 8 braid PE line for use in all fly fishing applications.
 
Why only one size backing?
Take a look at the chart below. You’ll see that the diameter of Hatch backing is equal to or less than our competitors’ products. Now look at the lb/kg ratings. You’ll notice right away that our material is stronger than everyone else’s. The diameter of the line determines how much backing builds up on the arbor of a reel, not the pound rating. So, a single diameter line can be used effectively in all fly-fishing applications – fresh or saltwater.
 
Specifications -
  • Length 100m = 108 yards
  • Diameter .015″ / 37mm
  • Strength 68lb / 30kg Conversion
  • 200m = 216 yards (Ideal For 1 Plus, 3 Plus , 4 Plus & 5 Plus Reels)
Hey All -
If you have reached this listing than you must be thinking about some backing. We're excited to offer this great new product from Hatch and believe it will revolutionize the way we think about backing. More info is to come but if you have questions please feel free to contact us for more info...Thank you...Greg - GFS Team

"What can you say about backing?"

on 1/13/2020 3:28:12 PM

Review (Tell us Why?: I decided to splurge a little and go with the Hatch backing in blue. Upon receiving it, it looks like backing... I tied a loop, put on some gloves and tried to break it. Only after cranking on it really hard was I able to break the backing, it broke inside the loop by the knot. Compared to some cheap backing I got off eBay, the Hatch backing is waaaay stronger. The Hatch backing laid down really smoothly on the spool and didn't take up any extra room. I hope to never see it flying out of the gui... More details

"Hatch Premium Backing"

on 8/27/2019 10:47:54 AM

Review (Tell us Why?: This is a superior product because it is both very small in diameter yet extremely strong with a breaking strength of 65 lbs. Gorge's web site is simple to navigate, has excellent products and a large selection of fly fishing gear. After I placed the order it was processed the next day and shipped so that I had my backing in less than a week. Thanks Joseph G. Alesi

"Good backing material"

on 8/2/2014 10:41:09 AM

Review (Tell us Why?: I own a Hatch Fly reel and love the reel. The backing material is the same high quality with attention to detail as with Hatch's fly reels. I bought this to use on my five weight rod so it won't get the test that a heavier weight outfit fishing bigger fish will get but I wanted to check it out before I put the backing on my steelhead rod.
