Teal, what exactly do you mean by "backing"? I am assuming you mean spool so far with cheap line, then put your expensive line on last. Thanks for an input you can give me.

Braid for mainline

 

Leader can be any other line of mono, copoly, fluorocarbon.

 

If you're limited on number of setups, this can be an awesome way around it.

While TT review is nice. It does not include seaguar tatsu a line very promising in just about every category. Furthermore, I have had 0 knot issues to date with FC. I agree that the cheaper stuff is problematic, but fluorocarbon itself offers slack line sensitivity and does not belly on the water or in the wind. It is a big deal to me to be able to feel slack line strikes and for my line to sink readily creating a more linear connection from rod to lure.

 

This is the first time I have read that fluoro does not belly on the water or in the wind.  That makes me want to give fluoro a try on a few more of my reels.  Big line curves on the water are aggravating.

Mono for topwaters, jerkbaits, other floating lures. Can also use for cranks and spinnerbaits, but Seaguar invizx and tatsu does well in that area too.
Braid for frogs only
High Grade Fluoro for everything else. You cant beat it. Perfect feel throughout the entire casting and retrieving process. Is great in the wind, works for all water clarities, doesnt dig, high abrasion resistance, it sinks, etc

So how much "backing" do you put on the reel and how much of the good line do you guys use? This sounds like an interesting idea that I may have to try out. So any more advice anyone can give me on this would be much appreciated. Thanks guys, Matt

Yeah and that belly kills sensitivity because the line is so slack and braid does not transmit slack line sensitivity anyways.

On that note, fluorocarbon will belly somewhat just not anywhere near the extent that braid does because the line is much denser and it sinks. Much better overall feel imho.
