It's probably sh_t luck but I've had the good fortune to see a lot of my backing this season, knock on wood. I like a meaty backing, at least 30# normal backing diameter. The 20# is just too tenous when your $50 fly line is out there somewhere down a set of rapids or in a big surf.

Given the choice of not enough and thin, I'd take thin. Tough choice though!
