Scientific Anglers Backing - Bulk

Scientific Anglers' backing is very thin, highly durable and the colors are colorfast. We've been using it for years on everything from steelhead and salmon to tuna and billfish and haven't run into a single inconsistency. We offer our backing off of our bulk spools and will professionally load the exact amount you need onto a new reel (if you purchase the reel and backing together).  If you're not ordering a reel, we will load your backing onto a plastic spool with the exact amount you indicate.

Under "Quantity", please indicate the number of yards you would like. For example, if you need 150 yards, change the quantity to 150 for this item.

If you are ordering a reel, line and backing:  If you order a reel, line, and backing on the same order, we will also pre-load the line so your new reel comes with the reel, backing, and line all ready to go.  Select the size and color of backing and which hand you reel with.  For example, if you want white 20 lb. backing and reel with your left hand, you would choose "White / Left Hand / 20 lb. - $0.08" from the drop down menu above.  Make sure to order the quantity of backing your reel needs as mentioned above.

If you are ordering a reel and backing but no line: If your order includes a reel and you would like us to put the backing on it for you, your reel will arrive to you with the backing on the reel all ready for you to put your line on.  Select the size and color of backing and which hand you reel with.  For example, if you want yellow 30 lb. backing and reel with your right hand, you would choose "Fl. Yellow / Right Hand / 30 lb. - $0.08" from the drop down menu above.  Make sure to order the quantity of backing your reel needs as mentioned above.

If you are ordering backing but no reel:  If you are ordering backing without a reel or would like to put the backing on the reel yourself choose "No Reel" from the drop-down menu above.  For example, if you want orange 20 lb. backing, choose "Fl. Orange / No Reel / 20 lb. - $0.08" from the drop down menu above.  Make sure to also order the quantity of backing your reel needs as mentioned above.

Do I need 20-pound or 30-pound backing? Use 20-pound backing for most 6-weight and lighter rods. Use 30-pound backing for most 8-weight and larger rods.  (Exception:  20 lb. backing is usually used for bonefish even on 7- to 9-weight rods).
