Alternatives to dacron backing?

I would like to hear from folks regarding their experiences with some of the alternatives to dacron backing. Micron, gelspun, P-Line, Power Line spectra have all gotten some press as ways to put more backing in less space on your reel. Before I go making any wholesale changes, I would love to hear from some of you who have actually used some of these alternatives to see whether the additional expense and trouble is worth it. More strength in less room certainly sounds like a desireable end to meet. Whaddaya think?
