Does anyone use regular braided line as backing? I know they sell special backing but what's the difference. I've never had to replace line if you were wondering...

The only thing with braid for backing is that its very thin before I had a chance to read about it I made the mistake of loading up the reel I use for bass with some I think it was 20 pound powerpro long story short I came tight to a nice jack an suffered a nasty birds nest its good backing just stay over the 50# mark and for the price unless u really need the capacity its not really worth it to me.

If u do use it just stay over the 50# mark put a strip of electrical tape over the arbor so the braid has something to bite. lay it on carefully make sure its well packed an level an beside that check ur drag before u fish an all should b well. If when u fish u notice the braid cutting into itself u probably need to go heavier. A buddy of mine uses 60# an it seems to work well.
