    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

    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.
