The first thing you need to think about when buying rings is whether to go for wood or plastic. The answer is clear - wood rings have it all over plastic ones. For a start, wood rings feel much better in your grip. They will not wreck your hands the way that plastic ones will. This is especially the case when doing Muscle Ups. If you've ever tried them with plastic rings, you'll know all about the calluses that can result. Switch over to wood to improve your grip and avoid that annoying hand pain.
Another major benefit of heavy duty wood rings over plastic ones is that they absorb your sweat much better. The last thing you want when you're working in mid air is for your hands to be sliding all over the place due to sweat build up. Yet that is precisely what you will end up with if you train with plastic rings. Go with wood to avoid the perspiration blues!
Now that you know to go with wood rings, you need to think about the actual thickness of the ring. The International Federation of Gymnastics standard is 1.1 inches (28 mm). If the ring is either too thin or too thick you will not be able to perform properly as your grip will be compromised.
Some gym rings are very heavily laminated. Do not buy them! Instead go for a raw wood item that is smooth and natural. It can have a light coating of laminate but that should be about it. Heavily laminated wood rings are a nightmare to grip onto and will get sweat slippery .
When it comes to straps, be sure to get a set with as long straps as you can get. Do not buy an item that has less than 15 feet of strap length. The extra length of heavy duty straps will give you more flexibility when it comes to hanging the wood rings on high objects. Longer heavy duty straps will also allow you to perform a wider range of exercises such as push ups. When it comes to strap thickness, look for a one inch thick strap. Straps that are much thicker than that will be likely to produce too much friction on the object that they are hanging from.
