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 400m
  • Diameter .015″ / 37mm
  • Strength 68lb / 30kg Conversion
  • 400m = 432 yards (Ideal For 11 Plus & 12 Plus Reels)

More info is to come but if you have questions please feel free to contact us for more info...Thank you...Greg - GFS Team

"Great backing, silly spool size."

Review: This backing is the best I’ve found. It has all of the benefits of gel spin, but doesn’t bite into itself on the spool or into your fingers when running. It doesn’t mildew or degrade like Dacron, and has a much smaller diameter. It truly is the best of both worlds. My only complaint is that Hatch needs to sell this backing on larger but still reasonable spools. I just bought 400 yds of it, and it comes in 4 100yd spools. Why they don’t do it on one spool is beyond me. You can buy 1600yd big reel... More details
