Tiny o-rings on flysurfer lines

Postby BigSky » Sat Apr 27, 2019 10:50 am

Hi. I'm looking for a US source for stainless o-rings on flysurfer lines. Any idea on what size they are for searching and/or a source in the US? I'm splicing some lines and want to add this dimension. Thank you.

Try a fishing tackle shop, they sell solid stainless rings about the right size.

I scoured aliexpress a few years back looking for those. I bought some of the fishing ones but they are too thin. Shame since they are so cheap. Would be good to find a cheap source for small but chunky rings.

I'm using this in 8mm.



These fishing rings are flatter - somewhere between a ring and a wisher. I think the Flysurfer rings a little nicer because there is a larger radius for the line to bend around. But these are working for me as line terminations. Can't beat the price and availability.
