Scientific Anglers XTS Gel Spun Fly Line Backing
The XTS Gel Spun Fly Line Backing from Scientific Anglers is some of the strongest, thinnest material in the world. Because it is a fraction of the diameter of standard dacron backing, you can store up to 75 percent more behind your fly line, which buys you more time to catch up to that huge tarpon that just went screaming across the flat. Scientific Anglers' XTS Gel Spun Backing is impervious to elements like UV rays and salt, and retains its strength when wet. Smooth coating and low coefficient of friction High visibility Abrasion-resistant.

No gel spun
Too thin too stiff cant tie a spiced loop. Had to toss it!

Great product. Easy nail knot to fly line, easy arbor knot to spool. Significantly more backing capacity due to small diameter of the gel spun material. The days of dacron are over!
