Re: Give in to the awesomeness of Wood Rings!

Regular Rogue rings are oversized, that is wider and bigger than standard gymnastics rings.

FIG gymnastic spec rings actually are reinforced in the construction of the ring. FIG spec rings nowadays are fiberglass but I believe wood can still be used, I can't find the specification document.

You traded a six-pack for them. Dang, that's the deal of the year!

You got a black eye from wood rings?

How slippery one's hands are naturally seems to very from person to person. I have some kids in the gym and they can barely do anything and will need to constantly chalk their feet (beam) or hands.

Wood oil actually sounds like a great idea. I imagine you could use something similar that you would use on a wood deck but that might make them slippery.
