2.4 piston ring options

I'm freshening a 2.4E that has Mahle pistons and cylinder. Everything measures great but needs fresh rings. What are my options? I'm not a big fan of the Mahle high-drag coil oil control ring... Some digging shows that JE has some iron moly that look like they would work nicely for $100

For iron (and biral) cylinders I've had good luck with Deves rings.
The JE are Hastings which are also good, but confirm the price is for a set of 6...not a set of one.

Not putting miles on your car is like not having sex with your girlfriend, so she'll be more desirable to her next boyfriend.
