Nick,

"Micron" is made of dacron. You may be thinking of "Micronite" which, according to its manufacturer (who is not a sponsor, so shall remain nameless) is a "super braid backing " that enables you to add more backing without increasing reel size". I don't know how much more backing you can squeeze onto the spool, and I don't know what it is made from.

I use Micron and have no complaints.

My $0.02.
