My boyfriend is interested in doing poi with mini hoops and to also learn some isolations. To those of you you use minis. How big to you normally make them (in inches)? What size tubing do you you (psi and inches)?
Yea, 20-24 inches is pretty standard. I use 23 just cause 24 gets frustrating for me but anything smaller goes too fast. And also isolations with a 20 inch is REALLY frustrating at times. Beyond that, use a 1/2 inch tubing between 100 and 125 psi. the 1/2 inch makes handling better than 3/4. Although a man might have an easier time with a 3/4 inch than a girl would, I would still stick to the 1/2 inch. Hope this helps! Let us know how things turn out!
I have some 1/2 inch 125 psi, so I am going to make him a pair and see how he does with them. I just have to go out and buy connectors and order silver mirror tape for them. I will post pictures when I am done. :)
