"Another thing to consider is you don't know what that hooper's story is. If you saw me hooping with my smart hoop at The Mad Tea Party Jam over the past weekend, you'd probably think I was a newbie-not doing many "tricks",…"
"You're absolutely right. & That's how I feel about smart hoops - uninterested, for myself at least. They sure are pretty. I have been hooping for 4 years and I still don't have one. I cant get myself to spend that much…"
"I second the water idea. My friend has a ginormous hoop filled with water and I have yet to meet a person who wasn't able to waist hoop with it. The water weighs it down dramatically while giving it momentum as it spins."
"Not sure how you feel about jam bands but I love hooping to Galactic! They are a jam band with some serious funky/jazz beats. The Mantras. Parliament Funkadelic. Dumpstaphunk. Miles Davis (especially The Man With The Horn record). Talking Heads.…"
"No problem! Reading the discussions on here has really made me take a step back and see what people may be thinking like that. That's why I chimed in. And even though I may not agree, I try to at least spin it in a way that has a positive…"
"I get that smart hoops were made with the professional hooper in mind but if a newbie hooper wants to spend $400 on a hoop & take the risk of damaging it, that's their prerogative. I completely understand your point of view…"
"I completely agree with everything you said. There is no reason to belittle or speak ill of a fellow hooper because they are supposedly less skilled than you are. We all started somewhere; very few people are born with that inherent understanding of…"
So the sun is starting to set and I am sitting on the ground waiting for some pals while watching a hooper play around with her smarthoop about 50 feet in front of me. Behind me was a group of friends - one of which was a girl who was holding an orange LED.I hear the hooper girl behind me say "I WANT THAT HULA HOOP!" & her male friend replied "That's like a $400 hula hoop." To which the hooper came back with "Yeah I know but she sucks and I can hoop SO much better than her!"Granted, the…See More
Hi beautiful hooper! I saw your thread online here and saw you make polypro hoops!! Will you be attending spac with Phish July 6,7,8 by chance? I just started a thread on here actually about trying to meet up with a hooper who's selling any of those hoops at the Phish shows! I LOVE THOSE HOOPS! Anyway! Have a beautiful day! happy hooping! -Michelle
Haha! Right! It totally is! I actually found it on ebay for $5.99 a roll; but it is only 25 ft. long, compared to 150. But the price and length actually even out to the different of 3 dollars. I have one more question for you, if you don't mind. I heard mirror tape can start to curl up on the edges. Have you made a hoop just out of the fire opal tape? If so, did you have to wrap is with a clear vinyl? Thank you so much!!
:o That's really generous of you. Oddly enough, there was student council meeting today discussing plans for a rave fundraiser ("Glowcoming") and I was about to ask whether you had any extra glow hoops.
