Your system makes sense, planning to use it.
My backing is currently attached to the running line with a nail knot. Have thought about cutting the backing about 12-18 inches from from the running line and tying a perfection loop in both ends to make a loop to loop attachment. Have you tried using backing for both loops? If so, any problems getting them apart when wet etc? Thanks
