Rings, Rings, Rings

So, which are your favorite?

Elite II rings
Rogue rings
Xtreme rings

Obviously, I'm especially interested in the views of those who might own different kinds and can give me pros and cons. But if you just have one kind, I'm very interested in your views as well.

Thanks.

Elite II get my vote for sure. They are light, sturdy, have a great grip. Also Tyler is an awesome guy who answers all of his emails. Can't say that for the other companies... Customer service means alot even to "potential" customers.

Elite II rings get my vote... I bought them about 3 months ago... great grip and awesome customer service. I used the Elite I all summer at a local affiliate, they were good, but the II are better. No complaints here whatsoever.

Haven't tried the rogue rings, but I own the Xtreme rings and have used the Elite rings.

Hate the Elites. Really bad grip and don't feel as sturdy as the Xtremes. My vote goes to Xtreme rings, definitely.

Re: Rings, Rings, Rings

i have the xtreme's as they were the cheapest route. I have to say i am very satisfied with them. Especially the very long straps that come with them. I think 18' ?

Re: Rings, Rings, Rings

ROGUES all the way baby!

I LOVE them. My buddy has his rings hanging in the gym as well, not sure which they are, elites or extremes, but I don't ever touch them. They just don't feel right compared to the Rogues, they feel cheap and too light for me. Nothing against them, as there are many satisfied customers, but they're just not for me. The Rogues are just bad ***, sturdy, comfortable, feel like they will last forever. And the buckle system is awesome as well.

I would never go with any other ring setup, given a choice...

Re: Rings, Rings, Rings

Has anyone tried new muscle driver rings?

They are HQ'd about 15 minutes away, I have thought about going to check out their rings and accidentally purchasing a KB while I was there.

Bill, When I PM'd you I got answers back almost immediately. Thank you for that. With Rogue-related questions folks should just go straight to Bill.
