    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.

    FEATURES:

    • Diameter: .015″ / 37mm
    • Strength: 68lb/30kg 
    • Conversion: 100m = 108 yards 
    • Choose from 100M, 200M, 400M, 1200M and 3000M

    Very strong and thin backing. I use on reels for salmon and steelhead. I like using orange as it's easy to see when you are into backing.

    Thinnest and strongest backing avail. Saves precious space on smaller reels, but won't compromise strength. In process of spooling on the rest of my outfits... worth the premium price. Shipped out sooner than expected. Great customer service.

    Decided to see if the hype was reel, tried on my 9 wt reel and was glad I did. Super strong and easy to bimini twist. Wound up putting it on my 11 wt and 8 wt as well.

    This backing is thin and very strong. I use this when fishing for Kings and never worry when one gets into my backing.

    I spooled this on my 9wt setup for a trip to Belize, handled everything I threw at it. Well worth the price, in may opinion. It will definitely be on ALL of my large saltwater setups.

    Perfect for ultra-large arbor reels where space is at a premium. This is really thin backing but without any compromise on strength. It's thinner and stronger than 50lb gelspun by 18 pounds! I think this should be the go to backing for any large saltwater reel, especially those with large arbors.
