Rings is pretty much almost always better for strength to say the least. Plus, probably better ergonomically as you mentioned.

Although the stabilization effect on rings goes away at heavy weight as I mentioned. My weighted ring dip is +155 lbs while only +170 on bars. Not much of a difference (and that was with an extra ~5-6 week cycle for the ones on bars).
