Cortland’s Gel Spun backing is made from super-high-strength gel-spun fibers, braided to exact specifications. The tight, round braid allows you to pack a lot of backing onto small spools. Available in hi-vis yellow, pink, blue, and white, in 30-lb., 50-lb., and 80-lb. test on 300-yard spools.
*Note: If you are buying any reel from us and you would like us to spool the backing and / or fly line for you, we are more than happy to do so at no charge. Either email us at email@example.com or make a note in the comments section of checkout.
If you need a different size or color, let us know. Cortland also makes a 2,500-yard spool option but we do not normally stock those.
