I'm very interested in this. My Cabelas CLA reels have a rather low backing capacity, 120yds 20lb. I did not know the diameter varied from color to color. I do like the more colorful/visible backing, it's a bit easier for me to see. I guess the color doesn't so much matter as long as I never see the arbor knot. I was looking at Cortland's Micronite, it's supposed to be something like 1/2 the diameter of the micron.
