Re: Does line price dictate quality?
As far as how much backing in length I dont know. But when all the line is on the reel it fills it right to the top of the spool. Its almost as if there was more line it'd hit the little cover thats on the bottom of the reel. And as fae as flies and distance. This season I used poppers in a size 10 that I was using in a pond for bass and gills. I normally casted 15-20 feet due to the trees and weeds. But did occasionally get on the river and used a few flies that came with the kit I got. I can only guess the size but I'd say around 16 and down to 20. And ibwas able to cast those a good 30-40 feet.
