Yes !...I have been using these...

The top two are Mono and the bottom is from the guys who invented Fluoro. I use the rings with 7x leaders and up to 9x tippet material - if needed. I use the rings with Streamers, Buggers, nymphs, wets (try using more than one ring for droppers) and dries. ALL connections are with a Uni Knot...

I no longer burn through leaders when I need to add tippet and save some $$$'s in the process...They work just fine
