Personally, I think its find with the way its described. Because guys, if it was like in 21, the ring would be level with the pad. No way you can swing that big ring enough to get the angle you need to make it. It's called gliding ring, it glided didn't it? There you go the name fits now.
If someone is going to be an idiot.. I have the right to call them out for what they are. Lord knows everyone does it to me when I do it.
we underestimate the obstacles so much, yes the gliding ring was a lot easier than it was in 21, the only reason we see sumone clear it thought is b/c the level of competition is so much higher than it was when the pipe slider was being used....hell its a lot higher than 18, i mean its at the point now were probably 15-20 people if they got to stage 3 would have a good chance of beating it. I believe A) poor nagano and B) the gliding ring is tougher than the pipe slider...its still a very tough obstacle...Yuji just performed it perfectly

Honestly, all I think they need to do to the Gliding Ring now is just move back the mat about half a foot...
But, I will say that I don't think it is harder than the Pipe Slider. Maybe with the stopper gone it is because one might not have control on where they are, but I think that it isn't as tough because you can just glide down the track and use momentum to carry you, not much of an upper-body strength obstacle.

Was the new ring looking too easy to you guys? Come on guys if you can get past the cliffhanger alone you deserve the break from the strain so the ring slides easy for you. That doesn't change the fact that the jump is HUGE, Yuuji almost didn't make it.
