Hatch 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?

In the specifications below, you’ll see that the diameter of Hatch backing is equal to or less than the competitors’ products.  Now look at the lb/kg ratings.  You’ll notice right away that Hatch's 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.
