Description

These nickel alloy rings are very small, smooth and seamless connectors between your leader and tippet. Tie one on the end of your leader, then tie the tippet onto the ring These rings make changing or replacing tippet easy without nibbling away at the leader. They really have caught on among competitive fly fishers, because of the speed and ease with which tippet can be changed. May be used on any leader system and are excellent for tying droppers. Though light enough to fish dry flies and midges on 7X tippets, they will handle any load your leader and tippet will bear. Available in the original nickel silver and now in black nickel for use in deep water or low light levels; choose from nominal 2 mm for light to medium leader or 3 mm size for heavy leader and tippet. Made in England, available with 20 or 100 rings per package.

Other Details

Actual measurements for the 2mm rings are 0.075″ (1.9mm) outside diameter and 0.05″ (1.3mm) inside diameter. For the 3mm rings, the outside diameter is 0.095″ (2.4mm) and the inside diameter is 0.0625″ (1.6mm).

Outstanding, uniform quality and strength

Reviewer: A viewer from Southern Connecticut

I prefer these tippet rings over all others. The 3mm size is more general purpose than the smaller 2mm, and the weight added to your rig is negligible. I use these tippet rigs for nymphing rigs, to add droppers and more importantly to save expensive tippet. When you first tie on a factory leader, you can add one of these to the end, and tie tippet off of it. This saves you from cutting the leader back all the time for new tippet knots. I gave it 4 stars based on cost, but the quality is unparalleled.

No More Disappearing Leader

Reviewer: A viewer from Woodstock, GA US

I love these things! I tie it on to the end of my leader and tie the tippet on also. Works great, when I change flies I don't eat up my leader because I can cut the tippet right at the ring.

Time and convenience: Tippet Rings

Reviewer: A viewer from Aurora, Ontario CA

As far as I know these rings were "borrowed" from the coarse fishing competitions in Europe. I first saw them in a book written by two Czech champions and in 2004 I had the chance to buy and try them at the World Fly Fishing Championships in Slovakia. I haven't fished without them ever since. The idea is that you can use a ring to join very fast two pieces of leader and/or the leader and the tippet, even if there is a big difference in diameter (i.e. 0X and 6X). Usually the tippet is a 6X and that needs to be replaced quite often. An improved clinch knot and away you go. Time is really expensive in a competition. For non-competitors it provides (a lot of) convenience. Try it once and you'll never go without it. Then drop me an email to say thanks, or swear, or anything, at sorincomsa@yahoo.ca
PS - One advice: as soon as you get the rings split them in sets of 5 and place them on safety pins. When you want to tie on a ring, pass the line through the ring, tie the clinch knot, clip the end of the line, and only AFTER that take the ring out from the safety pin. Then you can tie the ring to the second piece of line.
Tight Lines!

easy tippet changes

Reviewer: A viewer from Shirley, NY US

saves the leader from continual shortening with each tippet change. Pricey for what it is.
