Do you know the weight of the rings?
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"
So it would be 14 grams vs the SMC version for 11 grams. Considering the price and color options I could spare 12 extra grams on my ring buckle setup...of course, I'm not counting!

Well, I pulled the trigger and ordered several sets of black rings from Sling Ring and they arrived today. I took them out and hung from them for a while and I'm pleased to say they worked great. I'll stay cautious with them until I actually spend a few nights on them but I so no reason now to think they are weak.
Those .22 cent rings look good and are 3/4" smaller. I'll have to give them a call sometime and see about the specs on them.
