Alternating Color Backing

Orvis has come out with a backing that alternates color every 25 yards. It is made of "DyneemaŽ". Does anyone know what this material is? It comes in 35lb. and 50lb. test. I have steered away from "gel-spun" backing, but now that I am using spey lines that seem to eat up a reel's backing capacity, I thought I might give this a try. It is, however, very pricey ($55 for 300 yards of 50lb.) when compared to good old Micron, so I thought I would ask before I bought.

Thanks in advance for your input.
