I'm going to partially disagree with you there. I have it on 6 of my spools. Never bothered my fingers. And I like the strength. Stillwater fishing I sometime go 25' into the backing. Not by a fish, but line out.
But I'll agree gel is overkill for a 4w- I also think more than 75'-90' of backing on a 4w is overkill in most circumstances.
