Nice, but what happens when fighting a fish and not paying enough attention to winding line back on to the reel? I learned the hard way a long time ago, maxing the amount of backing can and will backfire. The extra assurance of 100' more backing is lost when the line jams against the reel frame while you are trying to recover line. I try to leave at least 1/4" of clearance between the line and frame.
