Hi! Wondering if anyone know the weights of those amazing helix hoops? (Currently I use a 34" 5/8"Non-led polypro, and absolutely love it! Im thinking of a 32"-34" LED hoop, that is great for dance, off body, etc..)
I'm seriously stuck deciding between the 3/4"poly, and the 3/4"HDPE.. I'd much prefer to get the lightest, but have been warned about the fragileness and durability of the poly—especially when LEDs are added.. yet I don't want something that I wish was lighter..
What is the biggest difference btwn the two? Weight? Bounciness (which I love) One the website, it says they're less than an ounce difference.. (and if you know the weight of a non-led poly pro, let me know for comparrison?)
Sorry so many Q's!..Any info would be so helpful! It's a hefty purchase so I want to be sure to make the right choice for myself. This hoop wow'd me to tears—it's so beautiful! THank you so much for any help!
Happy (and indecisive) Hooper with much love,
I do have a 7/8 HDPE led from trick concepts which has become waaay to heavy for me to dance around with it.. :'(
Thank you so much! I want the poly, but however I do live in Minnesota.. and will be using it during cooler fall days and transfering it in and out of the cold in the winter.. But most definitely never leaving it in the cold.. What do you deem as cold weather (as far as what would make the poly more likely to crack, etc.. There's 40's-50's cold.. and 20's-30's, and in MN definitely colder at times..) How cold of temps affect the durability? This is my main concern.. and In this case, would you suggest I do the HDPE?
Ok, and my last Question, I swear: With the understanding that if the poly were to crack—it is not covered by the warranty, but how much would you charge to replace the tubing? (if that's even an option..) Or If I get the HDPE do you UPGRADE hoops to poly for an additional charge without having to purchase a whole new hoop? :>
You seem to really know your stuff, so I value your opinion greatly! (and most definitely don't want to bother as I'm sure you're swamped with awesome hoop Q's.)
Just let me know your suggestion based on that, and I'll order what you suggest TODAY and start my eager countdown to HOOP-Phoria!!
Thank you again Craig, you've been VeRy helpful!! And thank you for creating such an amazing hoop for all of us hoopers!! THANK YOU!!
