I bought a HDPE Sacred Flame hoop several months ago and I have to tell everyone how awesome it is! It's super light-weight and responsive. The design is beautiful. (I got the sugar skulls.) And it's incredibly well balanced. You can coil it up for travel and the bendy wicks make it less likey that you'll hurt the spines if you drop it. There is nothing not to like about this hoop!
One word of advice if you get one: be sure you shake the fuel off as you pull it out of the dip can, because some of the hoop is bare plastic, if can get a little slick if you drip fuel on it.
The customer service is wonderful. Slang is super helpful and totally on the ball. If you've been on the fence about this hoop, go for it. You will be so glad you did!
