Phil,

I can't speak for anybody else, But what I liked about the blind spice was the smooth transition between the line and the backing (no bumps) When a big fish was hooked and took off, you didn't even notice you went into your backing. I pulled on lots of big fish with no failures.

In the last 6-7 years I have switched over to 50 pound Power pro, On the Power pro I use Max's loop. I connect my backing to the fly line via loop to loop. I hope some of this helps.
