HATCH PREMIUM BRAIDED BACKING
Hatch Premium Braided Backing is the thinnest diameter, strongest backing ever conceived. With a thin diameter similar to Gel Spun, backing capacity is increased significantly, with no increase in weight. Amazingly, this new backing technology yields a whopping 68lb test strength, which is why it is the choice of big game saltwater anglers worldwide. When you take the trip of a lifetime, and hook the fish of a lifetime, are you really going to put everything at risk over your choice of backing?
At Hatch, we’ve 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. This backing can be used on any reel and for any fishing situation, and will guarantee you never lose a $100 fly line, or worse, a prize catch due to faulty backing.
Why only one size backing?
The diameter of Hatch backing is equal to or less than our competitors’ products, with much higher lb/kg ratings. Hatch backing 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.
