Love using these guys. Save on leaders and just keep adding tippet to the end.

These are high quality, helpful little gadgets. I use these in direct line nymphing. Tip: Leave them on the swivel they come on until AFTER you tie the ring to your tipper.

As a new fly fisherman, these were recommended to me by a friend that has been fly fishing for years. I'm very happy I've added these to my arsenal. I can see how it will definitely save my leaders and let's face it, those aren't cheap over time. Highly suggest these!

Really simple to use, huge time and tippet saver. Highly recommended.

Works as expected. Saves me from having to waste a bunch of leaders. Saves time on not having to tie blood knots constantly out on the water. Would recommend.

I use these for Great Lakes steelhead but i only use the 25 lb ring. 45 seems overkill except for maybe PNW steelies

They work exactly as expected. A must have for Euro nymphing. I was a little concerned that the edges seem sharp. But, have never had an issue cutting tippet or breaking off at the ring. I typically use 5X and smaller tippet with a clinch knot with no issues.

Product met expectations. Quick and easy and saved me replacing full leader all the time.

So I tried something new these past couple of weeks. I have been using tippet rings in freshwater for years. They just save so much time and leader material, I love them. Because of this I decided to just try the 45lb steelhead tippet rings for salt. I never did this before because I didn't know if they would rust or hold up or how the knots would be compared to fluoro-mono knots. It turns out the tippet rings work great in salt as well! They do not rust (have had the same one for 2 weeks with no show of wear), knots hold strong to large redfish, and most importantly, I have keep the same leader on for the past 2 weeks (which is saving me some money). Pretty impressed.

Blood knots are easy to tie, but they eat up your leaders. Tippet rings solve that. They also give you a breaking point when you need to snap your line off of a stuck fly, yet they aren't weak when pulling in fish. They are well designed products and Rio makes smooth rings that don't cut into your leader or tippet. I recommend them.
