I think you will find that a BBS 3 will balance a lot nicer on most 5 wt outfits than a BBS 2 would. I think most 5 weights would be a little tip heavy with BBS 2 reel. Be careful with the manufacturer's backing charts. I always error on the conservative side (when loading backing) to make sure there is plenty of room for your fly line even if it is loaded a little lopsided on the reel (which happens a lot of the time).

Orvis backing chart says 125 yards of 20 lb. dacron backing for a BBS 3 with 5 wt line. like I said, I would probably only put 100 yards on to make sure that there is plenty of clearance, and 100 yards of backing is more than enough for a 5 wt.
