Default Too much backing line or Too much fly line?

It's one or the other, I bought a new rod & reel combo that also came with the backing line and fly line coiled up in the reel, the problem I see is that when the fly line is all coiled in the line drags on the inside of the reel, and when extending the line out it drags, what should I do, cut the back of the fly line or cut some of the front of the backing line. I'm guessing about 1' to 2' of line that needs to go!

Also does anybody no what line they throw on a Redington 9' 5w rod, the guy at G-Mountain didn't know, he said it's definetly WF, it's green, I don't know the brand, taper, nor the weight
