I am entering into month five of hooping with my home-made hoops. I have used 3/4" 160psi and 100psi, and also 1/2" 125 psi. My options are to either buy another bundle of tubing--but making it HDPE (it would cost me more just to "try")...or to buy a single, blank polypro online. I have not hooped with anything other than the regular PE, so I don't have much to go on... If I go with HDPE, will I still find myself wondering if I could've skipped it and moved straight to Poly Pro? Also I should add that I am always broke and I usually have to convince my husband that I REALLLLY NEEEED this hobby of mine...so cost is an issue.
Any help is greatly appreciated, even if I can guess what most of you will say! :)
i know how you feel about explaining spending money on hooping to your husband.lol.he fully supports my hooping but most of the time we don't have the extra money to throw into hobbies. i'm getting ready to order the stuff to make a single polypro on etsy and he total will come to about $23 after shipping ! super awesome deal, i'm ordering from this shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/GrooveeHoops?ref=af_you_favitem but if anyone knows anything cheaper let me know .lol.
i feel silly now. it is cheaper to buy the materials for making even a single hoop from hoopsupplies. just wondering when they say it comes with insert material, is that how's it's connecting ? like it won't have the rivets? i'm afraid it will come apart if i just use insert material.
I thought i'd seen some connected with rivets? but thank you very much, I'll definitely check out the video. don't want it flying apart all the time so I guess I just need to figure out how to put it together properly :)
I have been using my polypro that I got from HoopSupplies for a couple of months now, and it is my best friend of hoops! I ordered the one with the travel connector option, so I don't have to rely on just the friction fit alone. LLOvve it!!! Ps. I did not get mine sanded. That costs extra. I thought I would do it myself, but I chickened out and put gaffers tape on it instead. It does not seem to have affected it negatively in anyway, except that it is a little harder to keep clean.
