Hey, sawahladang, in what city do you currently reside? I'm in Bandung.
I used to hate hangs (because I became so slow when doing them) but it's one of my favorite exercise now. In my gym, it has the reputation as the callus ripper (happened to me once).
BTW if you're still not satisfied with your hangs, try to emphasize the head lead more (a good advice from Koing).
