The most popular rings thus far seem to be SMC. I didn't switch to the ring buckles because of weight, to be honest. I went to them for ease of use and ease of adjustability. I think they're a great way to go, and, as evidenced by the poll, about half or so of the respondents thus far are using them. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not saying to go to them because everyone else is. I just think, for me personally, at least, that it's an ideal suspension system.
