Well, I don't own either one..... but those 2 aren't the only competitors in the blow-your-mind-LED catagory anymore. You should also check out the proton-labs "helix" LED hoop. I just ordered one and their video makes it look mesmerizing. Also semi-affordable considering how many crazy things it does when compared to other smart hoops. Just food for thought.
Atomic pro all the way!! I have 5 Astral hoops! Atomic, Atomic Pro, Aura, and custom lumminate Minis. My pro is light!! Super bright!! I've dropped it, threw it, smacked it, had drunk people try it. And it's amazing!! Worth every single penny!! They even gave me a free bag, stickers, buttons. Stef and BJ are fantastic!! When you deside to order use MissHaley in the Refferal box and get a rad Discount!! Or just follow this link!! http://astralhoops.com/r/MissHaley .... Any other questions you have shoot I'm my way or email them :-) happy hooping!
The Synth by LED Artistry. Look them up on facebook. It's cheaper than the Pheonix, Atomic, and Helix. And, it's known for having no gap or black spot.
Can't waittttt I'm on the list for that baby! Seamless...so beautiful :)
