Alfa Gel Spun Backing has an extremely thin diameter compared to its high breaking strength. Therefore, it allows you to increase the backing capacity of your reel by up to 70% compared to ordinary Dacron backing. It consists of the so-called Gel Spun polyethylene with a special coating. Thus, it has a very smooth surface and an impressive abrasion-resistance. It creates less drag in the water, due to its thin diameter, which is a great advantage when fighting a large fish. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that this backing is often used for targeting powerful species in saltwater. Nevertheless, these spools with a length of 50 m are particularly great for smaller reels for targeting species such as trout or grayling.
