What is the purpose?  Not sure how a solid ring could be attached for hook replacement.  As a line connector welded rings are pretty common on ball bearing swivels.

 I use them as a 3 way & a coupling between braid & mono lines. The 4# braid does keep squeezing the mono leaders until the mono is too weak to land fish.

 

The braid is the Boa Constrictor. The poor mono keeps getting squeezed a little smaller after each yank on the lines. The smooth rings stop that problem completely.

Why not use a spro swivel.

I could use a twisted wire type of saltwater 3 way or a swivel.

 

Just have always used rings  Will stay with them

As a line to leader connector I quite often use a Bristol knot (the name might not be right but you get the idea) which is identical to an Alberto except the leader is wrapped around the braid.  The leader can also be attached by forming a loop in the end of the braid and tieing off that, either way you get the same knot.  Having the braid on the bottom eliminates the chance of it cutting into the leader.  Even though I use this knot when I do tie a traditional Alberto I've yet to have f/c or mono get cut, in saltwater I don't that chance.

 

Check out Southern Salt ball bearing swivels, carry several sizes many with welded rings.  They have worked as well as any other ball bearing swivel I've used.

I use a lot of pre snelled hooks with bait for kids & those new to fishing. So a permanent improved Trilene knot to a ring is simple.  Then I just do a simple loop thru the ring with a pre Snelled hook & I am done.  I make up different sized hooks with 12" of braid with a simple   loop on the end.  

 

 

Make a fold of the bitter end. Then just pull the end of the loop thru itself.  I find that is all that is needed for up to a 10 pound fish & a correct drag setting for beginners on 4# test line. If it breaks off ?  We all brag about the HUGE fish that got away.  I take them out to see the  number of things that can happen.  No rip their lips off or dislocate the jaws are done.   The 2 new Penn ultralight spinning reels & 7' ultra light rods will provide great runs with small fish.
