      This is a solid chunk of metal. A little pricey, but well worth it. Feels much stronger than the typical aluminum step up rings, and it won't bind because it's made of solid brass. If your like me and you only like to buy things once its worth the expense.

      Works, is durable. I bought this because my inexpensive, aluminum Cavision step-up would lock up with the filter. I thought buying brass would help deter this. I used it with a Heliopan brass ND filter and also with a B&W brass Polarizer--it occurred with both. It is a nice product, just not for the money. Save your cash, buy a spare $10< stepup ring. These steups never seem to stick to the camera so you can use the spare when you want to change filters.

        Comments about Heliopan 72-77mm Step-Up Ring (#141):

        This ring allows me to occasionally use the SinghRay Circular Polarizer I purchased for my Canon 28-300 L series lens on a Canon 20mm wide angle lens. The threads on both sides of this ring smoothly attach to both the lens and to the filter. The brass has a wonderfully solid and smooth feel. I always have a concern about the potential for cross threading. When I attach this ring to either the lens or the filter there is an immediacy of feedback which makes me feel very confident that the threads are correctly aligned and won't be crossed.

        At Last ! No more sticking filter rings ( as in all of the aluminum rings ). Pricey, but worth every penny to eliminate the frustrations, especially with rorating filters like ND gradients and polarizers. Now to save up a few pennies to buy a couple of more.

              I like the feel of the brass construction on Heliopan filters and step-up rings. They seem less prone to seizing too. If you want the best, this is it.

                  The Heliopans are on the more expensive side but worth it because of the brass construction. You won't need to replace it anytime soon.

                      I've decided to standardize on 77mm filters going forward. That way I need to buy only one of each color/type. I have no plans to buy or use any lens using filters larger than 77mm. I'll use step-up rings to adapt the filters to those lenses I use that use smaller diameter filters. this Step-up ring is a quality item and I've rated it at '5' for that reason.

                      I use this Step up ring to fit a 77mm Singh Ray variable ND filter onto my 72mm prime lenses. It works and is nice and smooth. It is a bit pricey for something so simple.

                            extremely solid and well made.

                            the only things I neglected to think about were:

                            1) you, obviously, need a new lens cap :)
                            and
                            2) the shrouds that come with your lens will not easily fit over the new, wider, mouth.

                            so, you need to buy both of these to fit a 77 mm mouth... again, obviously :)

                                        It's made from good materials and well machined. I've used low end reducers before and ended up with them 'bonded' to the filters. This one is easy to mount and remove without tools, beating of colorful language. I got it to fit a 77mm polarizer to a smaller lens- it works perfectly. I should have ordered and extra 77mm lens cap for use while the polarizer is mounted.

                                                This step-up ring is more expensive than others, but since it is brass, it won't bind and get stuck on my lens or filter. I use a Vari ND filter, and don't want to buy 2, so this is perfect for me.

                                                This is a well made adaptor ring that works smooth, doesn't bind, and allows me to use expensive, but rarely use filters on more than one lens size.

                                                  This is a solid chunk of metal. A little pricey, but well worth it. Feels much stronger than the typical aluminum step up rings, and it won't bind because it's made of solid brass. If your like me and you only like to buy things once its worth the expense.
