3600m Hatch Premium Braided Backing

$840

At Hatch, we’ve created a backing material that has the touch and feel of Dacron combined with the strength and diameter of Gel Spun in a single 8 braid PE line for use in all fly fishing applications.

Why only one size backing?

Take a look at the chart below.  You’ll see that the diameter of Hatch backing is equal to or less than our competitors’ products.  Now look at the lb/kg ratings.  You’ll notice right away that our material is stronger than everyone else’s.  The diameter of the line determines how much backing builds up on the arbor of a reel, not the pound rating.  So, a single diameter line can be used effectively in all fly-fishing applications – fresh or saltwater.
