Have not tried the Rio version but many years ago (20+ years ago) I tried some fly clips. I think Eagle Claw made them. They were really crappy. Heavy and the fly wouldn't stay on for long.

I've built a fair number of rods but I don't consider myself a "builder" but here's my take based on my experience. U-40 or any cork sealer is a double-edged sword. I don't use any sealer.
