They do. There are lines I know of like the Barrio line that is 130' long. The Rio distance line is 120'. But you can cast backing if you don't have that long a line or just if you can cast that far. Here is my entire line in my stripping basket and then a bunch of backing on the ground. Backing seems to tanle coming out of the basket.

Here is a friend of mine after casting an entire 95' Trevor Morgan line clean out of the rod. That's the backing knot you see laying there on the grass.

This is my same friend casting an entire 120' RIO gold competition line right to the backing.

You can cast backing, and if you are really good you can even do it with a really long line.
