Simple and elegant, but very light and strong, Antal’s reliable, long lasting rings replace ball bearing blocks or fairleads in a host of applications. Polished and hard black anodized aluminum rings are a near-universal solution, increasingly popular onboard offshore long-distance racers. Common applications include jib leads, backstays, lazy jacks, furling line leads, fairleads. Purchase the rings by themselves and splice your own custom lengths of 12-strand Dyneema, or buy them pre-made with a short loop already attached.
