Super-braids for fly reel backing

I'm trying to figure out what super-braid to use for offshore fly line backing. I hear good things about Izorline spectra and PowerPro, but also that they're very abrasive and will destroy snake guides in short order. They are thinner for a given break strength than Cortland and Orvis thin backing, and I have to wonder whether the extra-thin braids are just too abrasive to be used as backing. Anyone know?
