Appreciate your comments have great experience and that helps.

I am going for the Dacron figuring the "if it ain't broke........" theory ....

Never really had a problem with Dacron either and the two times in my life I was almost spooled....reeling in another 100 yards would have killed me not the fish!!!!!!!!

last question.... do you spool the backing on yourself or let a flyshop do it... my feeling is if I do it I would tend to criss cross more than a machine and maybe avoid cutting into the rest of the backing...if you follow my logic...

Thanks again
