    Some insight into the Hanbali madhhab in particular would be appreciated (bearing in mind I have no prior knowledge)

    Why don't you provide us with an insight into the Hanafi Madhab, so that we can mirror that with what the Hanbali Madhab says? Otherwise, your question is far too general.

    Well it's almost complete opposite method of doing.

    The Hambali madhhab will dwelve less in ray- and use more textual reference to make a position. If no Saheeh Hadiith is found on the issue, they will largely rely on ahaadiith having some weakness in it's chain before doing qiyaas and ray-. They also generally prefer taking an opinion reported from a companion before doing ray- or qiyaas.

    The Hanafi madhhab will use a lot of ray- and qiyaas, sometime prefering it to a hadiith having one chain of transmission, even if the chain is good.

    It's really different way of doing. And no, the Hanafi madhhab is not about ignoring part of the sunna, and the Hambali madhhab is not about not using anything of ray-.
