I have been enamored with the prospect of using some of the new(ish) low-friction rings since I first came across them. Their simplicity and strength, especially when teamed with Dyneema, is appealing, as is their relatively low cost (when compared to blocks).

In spite of fondling them at the chandleries every time I pass by their displays, I have yet to put one into use on the boat, nor even purchase one. This article, although extremely brief, gives a few examples of where they would work best, and where they won’t.

Do you have any of these rings on your boat?


  1. Please do post a video of you splicing the dyneema around one of those rings! Or hey, just splicing a loop like he did.
