      Great backing, great price
      Aaron (Massachusetts) | February 14th, 2021
      I've always used SA backing on my reels. Love its strength, thinness, and long life. So I was particularly thrilled to see RFR had the same stuff for less than 1/2 the price I've been paying elsewhere: $9.95 for 250 yards of 30lb.? Talk about a great deal! (But don't tell them ...)

      The backing looks great on the my new reel and I like that alternates colors every 100 feet. Very helpful when its time bail out...

      I find this backing particularly thin yet strong. Was looking for not your usual colour and this seems to do the trick. Have yet to test is properly but as usual seems like good quality from Scientific Anglers.

      Great colors/Great backing
      LVEZ (Northern KY) | November 28th, 2020
      The bright colors look great and have kept their color over time. Backing does its job. Low memory. Would recommend.

      I put red on all my reels. Love the look. Seems like solid backing. Unfortunately, haven't had a fish take all my line out to test its break-strength yet! Someday (fingers crossed).
