Titanium Low Friction Rings – Aqua Marine

Titanium Low Friction Rings are lighter and smaller than a conventional pulley block. They have become a popular alternative for many applications where traditional blocks once ruled. Instead of rolling on a pulley sheave, the active line with a low friction ring (ferrule) merely slides on the inside smooth surface of the ring. Splice another line around the ferrule to attach it. This attachment line is sometimes made as a loop that is put through a pad eye or the toe rail. Frictional losses are not as big as one might think, especially when using low friction line such as Dyneema. In addition to being lighter and less expensive than conventional blocks, ring ferrules are also less prone to failure since there are no pulleys to crack or bearings to foul.
