Re: Tippett rings
So I am not the best knot tier in the world but not bad either. Just sitting here watching Home Alone as it snows in Denver. Typical night cleaning out the hip pack even though I haven't fished in forever, reading the internet bored.
Ran across tippet rings. For a guy like me who fishes 6x leader 99% of the time, wouldn't these work just fine for regular old Rocky Mt trout fishing. Every time I do a double surgeons to put new tippet on I end up losing 6-8" of leader. Not a big deal but after a few outings I blow through a leader.
I could also use these to go to 7x FC tippet when I need to step down a touch.
Am I off my rocker, but for 6x or 7x these are so small I cant see them affecting performance much if at all.
Am I off my rocker ?
