Default Need help finding colored backing

I'm looking for some bright blue backing, I purchased some a while back online but I can't seem to remember where I got it. 20# or 30# doesn't really matter.

Thanks

I wasn't sure if it is as dark as I purchased before, here is my other reel setup.

The backing on the Jim Teeny site looks lighter to me, has anyone purchased it yet?

This is the Teeny backing. The color isn't too dark nor is it too light. I find it to be just right.
It cpmes in pink too. That was a nice find for a Casting for Recovery rig we built up for an auction.

I got Teeny fly line backing on Ebay. They had Blue in 20 but were out on the 30 so I ended getting it in bright green.

I think this is the guy. He's out except giant spools. 20lb Blue Fly Line Backingtrout Saltwater Rod Reel 1000 Yd | eBay

I've never tried this brand but the have blue also. http://www.ebay.com/itm/WOODSTOCK-AN...item460d156238

Thanks all, the eBay backing is from Great Britain, and I'd like to have the rod ready for opening day April 13th, My rod builder said he will have it done for me by then. I'll be ordering some from Jim Teeny

Also I'm new to this site and one time I found a bunch of step by step fly tying threads but now I can't find it, any help is appreciated. This forum is awesome and really huge and a little hard to get around for a newb.
