No lining on this ring, it,s whipped onto the dolly section and the line can be unwound from it, still allowing you to take the dolly section off without breaking down the rig.

Il post a better photo once it,s fitted.

Morning, Could you tell me where I might get some rings like that,I am going to make a swingtip and thought that if I used two rings like that I would be able to remove or add the swingtip without having to break the tackle down.Thanks

Ah, does that explain the single whipping "Ghost" on the dolly?
