    The XTS Gel Spun Fly Line Backing from Scientific Anglers is some of the strongest, thinnest material in the world. Because it is a fraction of the diameter of standard dacron backing, you can store up to 75 percent more behind your fly line, which buys you more time to catch up to that huge tarpon that just went screaming across the flat. Scientific Anglers' XTS Gel Spun Backing is impervious to elements like UV rays and salt, and retains its strength when wet. Smooth coating and low coefficient of friction High visibility Abrasion-resistant.

    Features:

    • Micro-diameter gel-spun polyethylene allows up to 75% more capacity than standard material
    • Retains 100% strength while wet
    • High abrasion resistance, high visibility, impervious to UV rays, gas, salt, and other elements
    • Smooth coating and low coefficient of friction (COF)

    Purchased the 50lb GS to eat up a little of the capacity on a large arbor reel. Liked the larger size to capacity ratio. Color leached a bit, I hope I get to wash it all out.

    The backing is quite thin and the price is ok. It tends to loose its color quickly. Still a good way to use a smaller more balanced reel on lightweight rods.
