so this is what i came up with. i purchased some welded rings from a hardware store since the local rock climbing store didn't have any descender rings but anyway, what i did was took out the S hooks from my GTUL and just looped the rings through the same way they were attached to the S hooks.(you should be able to see it in the picture below. let me know if the picture doesn't work) does this seem like an acceptable set up? i will probably eventually switch to whoopie slings, but this is what i got for now. and i'm 5' 10" at about 160lbs if that will make a difference.
