As Carl said, there isn't a bump. Per online research I've done, both the blind splice & the bimini are supposed to be 100% strength connections.

When I got my new reel (from California Fly Shop), they did the blind splice on the backing loop. On my other reels which I rigged myself, I had done the bimini. I really like how smooth the connection is. Part of the reason to change for me is experimenting & learning all the 'new to me' stuff about fly fishing.

BTW, still waiting for a big enough fish to take me to the backing!
