    The reason for the ring is that it gives a better diameter for the amsteel and does not jam in the loop part as will happen with tieing the knot you use.

    FWIW the problem with knots and amsteel is the diameter of the loops get very small as the hollow braid collapses flat. That significantly degrades the strength of the rope. Using a hard ring maintains the diameter of the cord through the knot. Better would be to use a solid braid and ring as it would collapse even less.
    YMMV

    Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)
