Blue water fly line core strength
I heard some folks use Diawa Saltiga line as backing since it is somewhat more user friendy that some of the gel-spun lines. I think the folk at Hatch fly reels told me they used Saltiga as backing. Their catalog lists the capacities for their larger reels using Diawa Saltiga 55# Boat Braid. They list the line at .014"/.36 mm diameter. Has anyone heard of comparisons between Saltiga braid and other small diameter heavy test lines used as backing?
