Why Use Dacron Backing on Your Centerpin Float Reel?

Most modern centre-pin reels are made from aircraft aluminum.
Whether machined or cast, they are therefore potentially susceptible to environmental changes.  
Installing monofilament directly onto the spool can therefore potentially permanently torque the aluminum spool out of round potentially distort an expensive reel.
Similar to a fly reel, it is therefore recommended to spool any reel with Dacron backing.
The most common choice of backing is Dacron in 20# test.

The Dacron Backing accomplishes many functions:

  • Spool with Dacron Backing ONCE as a “filler” and ONLY replace your main line as needed – Far easier on your pocketbook;
  • As most quality reels are ported, Dacron Backing is far more breathable than straight monofilament and allows for quicker drying of your Main Line;
  • Dacron Backing creates a cushioned buffer for the potential forces of expansion and contraction;
  • Dacron Backing also provides insurance for those drag-blistering runs of steelhead or any other strong, far running gamefish;
  •  
    It takes far less Dacron Backing to “back” a spool than if straight monofilament line was used – Dacron Backing is usually much thicker in diameter.
  • There is a multitude of coloured Dacron Backing now available that will add a degree of appealing aesthetics at your pleasure.
