I would recommend moodhoops as well if you're looking for a hoop low in price but high in quality. And they're super bright!
The hoop i currently have is the 33" firefly from moodhoops, i find that it is too heavy now? im thinking maybe an astral hoop since they are made with polypro tubing instead of hdpe? im not sure though :p
Astral hoops are bad ass to look at and people LOVE them but I don't think they would be much lighter than a mood hoop and might even a bit more heavy considering it has a LOT more LEDs in it which will add weight. I don't know for sure, I've never used one. You can probably send in your current hoop back to mood hoops to get re-tubed in polypro I do know that!
The LEDs used in the AtomicPro are much different than MoodHoops. My AtomicPro polypro hoop (with 100 LEDs in it) is lighter than my custom polypro LED hoops that have only 24 LEDs.
Ah that's good to know! I have been really hesitant towards smart hoops because I figured they would be heavier than my mood hoop and I just don't like too much weight but hell yeah! Oh god that makes me so excited!
I second the Astral Atomic Pro. Amazing, amazing hoop. I adore mine. <3 And it's soooo lightweight.
I have a 33 inch polypro sunrise led, and actually when I pick up my friends 36 inch hdpe the weight doesn't seem much different at all.
putting led's inside of a polypro change the weight drastically.
I love my Moodhoops LED!
I think 33" is the smallest you can get from MH unless you are buying mini's, but I could be wrong. There may be a custom sizing option. MH also gives you the option of HDPE or Poly, but the poly is gonna cost you extra.
You can buy any of there hoops in 30 inch now! They have a remix page where you can customize the LEDs and pick 38, 36, 33, or 30 iches and now they have a full customization page where you can choose any LEDs, hoop and tubing diameter :D
