Default Re: Cheap backing or substitute

Lots of good information here. If you wind on your own backing, assuming 30lb. dacron, how much tension should you use? I once had a reel where the backing got buried into itself and would not come off. I may have loaded it on myself and probably didn't keep enough tension on it as I was winding.
