Backing done

Modern backing is very compact, and on a large arbor reel like this one, there is no reason to overdo the amount. This little 5-6 weight reel now contains more than 100 yards of backing, which should enable you to cope with even the fiercest of fish that you are likely to want to catch on a 5 weight line.
