Tips for Leaving a Helpful Review
Okay so I have bought both the 100 and 160 PSI and hooped with them both A LOT!
I first bought the 100 because I figured the wicks would add enough weight. And I loved it for awhile, but then I started getting wild with it and probably using it more often than I should have, in too hot of weather. When the hoop heated up (desert heat + fire), it got REALLY flexible, resulting in several burns and then one really nasty burn that came from the hoop flexing and holding its position with the rod and wick searing my forearm flesh. So I decided the sturdier hoop might be better.
I have probably gotten about 10 burns from the lighter one, and after about 3-4 months of hooping with the 160 PSI hoop, still no burns that haven't washed off in the sink. I also noticed with the 100 PSI, which was collapsible into 3 parts, the connection areas started to pull apart pretty much immediately (particularly when knee hooping.) So I asked Brandon, the hoop maker, not to make the 160 one collapsible. He still put one bracket in there so it could ship easily, but haven't noticed the same wear on it. I really recommend the 160 PSI hoop. It is durable, beautiful, and actually I like the weight better.
Other pro's, the guy gets the hoop out to you in about a week, which is WAY better than I've experienced for LED hoops. And the tape wrap job is nice. AND he guarantees the wicks for a year, you just send them back to him for servicing. I feel like the hoop itself will last forever.
