Gel-Spun Backing

4731 Views 12 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  tonyd
I have been thinking about using Gel-Spun Backing for a couple of my reels as it would give me more backing and give me piece of mind for an up coming B.C. trip. The backing i have been looking at is the "PowerPro", Cabelas sells it and it is not that expensive.
Pro's and Con's? let me know what you think, or what you use,thanks,brian:D

How about Fireline - Berkley's fused line - as an alternative ?
It has good abrasioin resistance, it tends to be underrated
(at least in the lighter diameters), and it tends to be easier
to spool on. I've used 10 and 14 lb "test" for most of the
spin fishing I've done during the past 4 years or so, and 30
lb test for a bit of muskie fishing.
