JINKAI Sleeves are made from a special aluminum alloy that is easy to crimp and resists electro-corrosion in saltwater. The soft metal and oval shape work together to provide a permanent crimp without compromising line strength. A wide variety of sizes coordinate for use with all ib. tests of JINKAI Line.
Get the full size crimper from Jinkai and these crimp perfectly. I found that they destroyed the smaller size crimper due to the quality. Very easy to make crimps with these-tested about 10 and the line always broke before the crimp let go.
Easy to use.

Another use for sleeves
May 7, 2020
I no longer do much fishing but I found a little different use for the sleeves.
I used them in my hobby with some 90 pound test mono to serve as rigging on a model sailboat I am building.
There are other small items of terminal tackle used on models as well. They are kept in a divided plastic tackle box also purchased from Tackle Direct..

I've used Jinkai sleeves for all my Long Range trips without a single failure. They work best with the Jinkai crimpers.

I use these crimps with the SC-3 crimping tool and they hold great. I did a pull test on my leaders to compare against hand tied knots and the crimps won every time.

Absolutely the best. There is no need to look any further. Pair them up with some Jinkai line and your all set.
I am buy the Yo Zuri 50lb leader (HD50LB-CL/YOZ-0310). There is no diameter information. Which crimp shall I use?
Yo-Zuri states that the diameter of the HD50LB-CL is 0.711" or 0.028mm, so you would need to use the Jinkai K050 Sleeve (for 50lb test or smaller) which you can view at the link below: http://www.tackledirect.com/jinkaik050.html
