I have tried a bunch but will only use regular dacron and saltwater gel spun.

I don't need 300 yds of backing on my reels. More importantly have found that
if you have a large fish/cranked drag, the fine diameter stuff will dig into itself on
the spool and basically tangle or effect the drag to the point that you will lose the fish.
