Thanks for the reply.I'm basically looking for backing at least 30lbs in strength but around the diameter of 20lbs.That way I can get enough on my reel to make it more versitile.I could use the same reel for warm saltwater and on my spey rod without having to change backing or worry about capacity.The only way I can get the diameter I want is to go up to 50-100lbs braid.Obviously this is much stronger than I need but it will still allow for more capacity than reg 30lbs backing.It would also allow for more abrasion resistance.I don't want to use 30lbs gel spun because it is so thin and hard to handle.
