So I know there are several threads about Proton Labs' Helix hoop... BUT this is not just about the hype anymore! Word on the street is that Helix's are coming in! So.. I wanted to make this forum for all of us who have been patiently waiting for the arrival of our dream hoop. If you get one PLEASE post us a video, your thoughts, what your most excited about (or not excited about), tutorials, and all! I ordered one but probably won't get it for a few weeks but you'd better believe that I'll be posting about it in here!
ALSO, this thread would be a great resource for those folks who have been waiting to see one in person before making their purchase..
btw.. I have no affiliation with Proton Labs.. this is not an advertisement.. I am just truly excited!
I just want to bump this thread. I ordered mine today so I can get it in time for my birthday in August, and am looking for a few answers about its durability. :)
Having videos on their facebook and actual feedback is what made me decide to order today! I saw some people asked about durability of them, but the people who are responding are babying the hoops right now (not that I blame them!). I think I read that Proton Labs have improved on the design of the Atomic and Phoenix so they can really be used and not break, but I'm wondering about first hand experiences from people outside of the company. I did e-mail them about it though, so hopefully they'll get back to me in the next few days with some answers. I ordered HDPE for some (hopefully) extra durability
Yeah I saw this video yesterday. So is it just me or is there a gap in the lights?.. probably where the batteries are placed. That's a little bit of a pet peeve of mine with LEDs. Astral evenly distributes their batteries so there isnt one noticable gap... or is it just the girls hand on the hoop.. I can't tell.
i think it's either in the pattern, or it's the girls hand. i'm fairly sure there are batteries placed evenly around the hoop.. i noticed the gap, too.. but it wasn't there during all the patterns.
excellent. I should be getting mine in a few short weeks..
eta 4 weeks actually... *sigh*
hm upon seeing new videos I think I was wrong about the gap.
yeah.. i'm really frustrated about that gap now that you can see the real time videos of it. :(
I'm a little bummed about it, too... But still excited to receive it :)
