"Im guessing they get it custom extruded. It would be pretty much the only way to colour the plastic.
Juggle Art in Australia sell a range of hoops which they make from really cool custom extruded pipe too. It is not poly pro but it is…"
"I'm confused by this... As far as I'm aware polypro is incredibly difficult, nigh impossible to dye, especially in the consistnet shades they have... My only solutions are 1 maybe they are getting custom extrusions or 2 it's not…"
"My understanding is that the plastic is dyed so they feel just like regular polypro hoops. Those are the ones from Superhooper.org at least.
I have regular poly pro and I taped mine. I don't really notice a weight difference and the…"
So I've started noticing a bunch of websites (such as http://polyprohoops.com) selling colored polypro hoops... what kind of coating is this?? Is it just the actual tubing is colored? Is there any way to make colored polypro that doesn't really affect weight?
By helicopter I'm assuming you mean that over-head swirly thing I do? I haven't actually seen anybody else do that so I'm not really sure what it's called or how to explain how to do it.. I accidentally figured it out one day while just playing for fun. I change my hand grip a lot, that's really the only thing I can think of... Explaining these things online is almost impossible. :[ I hope you can find a tutorial on it somewhere!
thanks for the comment, im sorry to say that im not very good at explaining things via internet BUT i can still let you in on a little something haha you probably have already figured it out but those elbows! Those are what seem to screw up the flow and get in the way most of the time! atleast for me anyways. Its all a matter of tucking them in the right spots so they stay out of the way when your spinning! i hope that helps, like i said i much better at showing then explaining things :( good luck.
Hey hey! just now saw you commented on that one video of mine about the shoulder hooping. the advice i have for those two shoulder tricks are.. are you comfortable hooping normally on those two angles? being comfortable with those angles helps and ton!and if you've really comfortable with shoulder hoop tricks standing up straight. and which direction do you hoop, to the left or right? if you're a lefty, like myself... when i'm facing the ground hooping on that angle the trick is the smoothest when you try it on your right shoulder. and when you're facing the sky on that angle, use your left shoulder. my friend tried using the other shoulers to learn first, and it was so hard to learn that way. once you're comfortable with using the two shoulders that make it smooth first, then you can learn the other shoulders. omg sorrrry for the long mesage and awful explanation. much love though! hope i help some! -Michelle!
