I have Hatch PE backing on several of my reels. Put the blue colored backing on a new Abel SDS reel and could tug-test my Bimini without breaking the line and NOT at the knot but in the line itself. After Hatch asked for and received a 10 yard sample of the backing, they have gone silent -- crickets. I trust the backing as much as I do their service.
