I agree, Great customer service and fast shipping. I told them ahead of time that I had a performance coming up and they had no problem with getting it here on time. My hoop is the spectrum, very light weight compared to the ones I've played with before (trick concept) my mood hoop is a 33'' with the 5/8 in. hdpe tubing. I'm still getting use to this size of tubing I normally use a 7/8 in. The tubing is a little wonky so I wouldn't leave it coiled down overnight or in the sun. I wonder what thickness the tubing walls are?
I have a Cosmic Hooper LED and I love it. It's pretty lightweight, pretty well balanced and super bright. I've got eight white lights and eight rainbow strobes and it was $150.
I've also heard great things about MoodHoops and Illumi-Nation hoops. I'll probably buy a MoodHoop next.
You might want to look in the forums here for info on Lighted Lifestyles. Especially this thread, which is fairly recent:
And this one, which has some older reviews and some newer ones:
Most people's concerns are about customer service responsiveness and that the wait times are fairly long (they are at Cosmic Hooper too, but he always responded to emails quickly and would let me know the status of my order). Some people have gotten the wrong hoop, or had their hoop be a little off (missing a color, lights in the wrong order, fewer LEDs than they ordered). However, those that have gotten the hoops they ordered from LL seem to love them and really gush over them.
i hear alot of great things about the mood hoops-how they are a great company-ship in a timely manner, and priced great! With lighted lifestyles, I feel you will have a similar experience as I did (not with LL but a similar type of company). These are 1 men operations out of there home-and it's summer time. Most of these guys are going to festivals-as well as there customers who are ordering these hoops. You can't run a business when your partying all week. 4-6 weeks is a long time-which is what i was promised where I purchased my hoop. To save yourself any frustration-or having to wait 8 weeks like i did-as I saw other people who ordered from LL did; and that time really feels missed. By the time you receive it summer will be over-and even a little of that excitement may dissipate. Spend the extra money-go to mood hoops-or even troo hoops!
Hoop <3 and Harmony!
