Need some input from everybody

Marty at badger has asked to to get some input from the hunting world so you guys are my guinea pigs...
He is considering making "sporting" rings.... I suggested to him to simply make his normal tactical rings in aluminum...
I think you get the best of both worlds- Tough as hell but lightweight...
What do you guys think? Would you buy them for your hunting rifles or should more changes be made? And what would they be?
Thanks guys....
Chris

    I'll bite...

    Most of the guys I guide hnting are worried about 3 things..

    1. How good they look in their brand new stuff from cabela's
    2 How their brand new superloudenboomermegamagum looks and the stuff it wears...
    3.How lightwieght everyting is.. ( read most are out of shape and FAT )

    for a true "typical" hunting rig.. asthetics will catch they eye of most and saving weight is a plus...

    if Marty were to offer the rings built tough like the tacticals but round the hard edges and whatnot for a more appealing ( less rugged/aggressive ) look he just might have a winner...

    just my .02

    I'll second Wyo's comment on the rounding off the hard edges and I like the idea of an aluminum heavy duty ring.

    And how about 1 or 2 pc aluminum bases to go with them?

    Concur with the ring suggestion for sure. I'd use them (vs. steel) on a couple of my tactical rigs to save some weight regardless.

    Thanks for the inpu and keep the suggestions coming....
    A one piece aluminum base is definitely in the works.

    Sounds like WyoWhisper has it covered. I'd buy a set.
