Cortland Micron ECO Backing

Cortland says its new Micron ECO backing makes a statement about the its commitment to the environment without making any sacrifices in fishing performance.

The company says: “We’re turning recycled plastic bottles into legendary Cortland braided line. We use fibres made from recycled PET 1 (Polyethylene terephthalate), a purified thermoplastic polymer resin, to braid a high-strength, thin diameter fly line backing that is as strong and reliable as it is friendly to the environment.”

Cortland Micron ECO is available in 20lb and 30lb tests and in 100-yard, 250-yard, 1000-yard and 2500-yard spools.
