    If there is a slit you can see through, or put your knife blade into, that might not be normal.

    There is a "joint" that looks like a tiny groove around the ring. That's normal.
    Not like a but jointed steel ring, but a joint around the circle.


    And they hold fine.

    That's the one a groove. Good to know that's normal, was not so sure about it, when it turned up in the post a week ago.

    What's your recommendation for a descending ring? There were quite a few options... and we don't have a REI here. The one from Whoopiesling.com is out of stock... Your advice would greatly appreciated.

    Another vendor

    Another option for rings is Paul a "AHE".

    Keep in mind what these are used for. They are made to rappel off the rock face. The only thing I would look out for is it's construction, Solid is the one you want. I am not talking about the SMC Descending Ring, I am talking about the one that is rolled, they will fail easily.

    The SMC Descending Ring's Break Strength is 14 kilonewtons, (about 3147 pounds-force)

    The Omega Pacific Rappel Ring is rated at 20 kilonewtons, (about 4496 pounds-force).

    I think you good to go!
