    Firstly, the ring is inexpensive and made good enough for me.
    Now, let me offer my best advice to avoid cross threading filters. Never screw it on with too much force use light pressure only. and, (the best for last) to help keep from cross threading filters first rotate the filter in reverse, wait for the threads to drop in place then rotate to screw on the filter. Starting in reverse will help to properly align the threads. I hope this helps!

        Comments about Sensei 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

        Fits well, does what a step-up ring is supposed to do. I use it to attach a Canon 500D close-up lens (77 mm) to my Canon 180 mm f/3.5 macro lens (72 mm). Sturdy enough for the job.

                Does the job it needs to do. Saves me from having to buy numerous filters. Does catch every now and then, which causes some concern about double-threading. Haven't had that problem so far though. Should also take into account how inexpensive it is.

                      Without going to the expense of brass, this aluminum step ring performs well. It does periodically stick like other aluminum rings but no more so than the expensive items. For the price, these are a good bargain. Get a set of filter wrenches.

                                      The bigger part of my lenses has a front thread of 77mm and that's the size of all my "special effect" filters"; having the need to use them with my Canon EF 85 f1.2mkII too - which has a 72mm thread -I decided to buy this step-up ring. It work like a charm, is metal and black finish and couple smoothly with the lens front thread… I'm really happy because it make me save a lot of money, avoiding to buy a whole new set of lens filter. Thanks to the relatively thin ring and the fact that filters are larger - notice the difference between a STEP-UP and a Step-Down adapter ring - there's no vignetting and the quality of final picture is preserved.
