Owner made a change to their solid rings in 2019. Previously there were not necessarily our favorites, we liked QuickRigs much more. The old owners appeared to be stamped, had sharper edges verses a round welded ring. The edge on the old ones could have been a stress point for mono or braided lines in comparison to a round wire. Their change is reflected on the new versions which we are stocking. The picture right shows the old version rings. The new versions are in the image below. The new rings are made from stainless steel and anodized black. Much better product in our opinion, more like QuickRigs and they are worth checking as well.
