What replacement ring for Sugino XD triple crankset?

I would like to replace the middle chainring on my Sugino xd triple crankset. I want to replace it with the same Sugino 36t ring, but I can't find one online with the ramps and pins. Sugino rings with no ramps and pins are everywhere, but I don't know how that will affect my shifting. Thoughts?

I run triples on most of my bikes, and have some with, and some without ramps/pins on the middle ring. It has not affected shifting to any great degree, in my use. On the big ring, though, I have noticed a MARKED improvement with ramps/pins. I think the middle ring takes less pressure to shift onto (from the small ring), so not so much difference.

you can purchase the sugino supershift rings in a set of three, any bike shop that orders QBP should be able to get them.

they are a bit pricey ($100 m/l) but why not?

Yeah I really only need the middle one replaced, I rarely use the other two rings, thanks though.
