Personally I am an Okuma guy and it takes a bit of backing to ensure the spool is full even with 1000' of wire.

I have 1000’ wire I always use for dipsey, but there is no backer on it.. do you guys have backer on yours? And how much if so

Depends on the reel you're using... easy way to check. Measure off 100ft in your lawn and walk it off and see what your line counter says at the 100ft mark. If it reads higher than 100 it means you need backing.
