These alloy rings are very small, smooth and seamless connectors between your leader and tippet. They make changing or replacing tippet easy without nibbling away at the leader, can be used on any leader system and are excellent for tying droppers. Outside diameter of 5/64 in. (2.0 mm) for light to medium leader or 3/32 (2.5 mm) for heavy leader and tippet. Single size packages have 10 rings. Assorted packages have 30 rings, 10 in each of 3 sizes: 5/64 in. (2.0 mm), 3/32 in. (2.5 mm) and 1/8 in. (3.0 mm). All sizes come strung together on a metal snap for security and easy handling.

Time and convenience: Tippet Rings

Reviewer: 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 [email protected]
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!

Outstanding, uniform quality and strength

Reviewer: 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.

Pleasantly surprised

Reviewer: from Greenville, SC US

I bought these tippet rings and after a bit of reluctance tied one on to a tippet that went to a single dry fly. I was expecting it to pull the dry fly under but it didn't. I was impressed and more inclined to change my tippet when I needed to (4x that day).

easy tippet changes

Reviewer: from Shirley, NY US

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