"Many fuels or alcohols will quickly remove tape glue. Dab a bit in a paper cloth and rub away. Wear rubber gloves and do it ouside though. And if you can safely burn the paper towel after use, that's the best way to get rid of…"
"A leather hoop could be really cool if you don't mind the extra weight. You could make it look really steam punk with some brass or other metallic coloured reflective tape showing through from underneath.
I've always thought…"
"The first 10 seconds or so, I was like "this is kinda lame" - I don't know if it was that the isolations were slightly off, or just less than spectacular moves, but then you warmed up and got steadier and I was hooked, and the more I…"
"Not that I have a problem with homeofpoi.com, but I'm not sold on their round poi, unless they've improved a lot over the last couple of years. I like the shape and the slowly changing light (my wife got the other type, that strobe…"
"One of my Ogg poi broke pretty quick. The rechargeable feature is nice. But they are also not the brightest out there. I haven't owned a pair myself, but I'd go with one of the flowlights offered by flowtoys if I was to…"
"I started out with a 3/4" 100psi hoop, 38" in diameter. A few weeks ago though, I found a bunch of kids hoops for sale. I took the biggest one there (33" diameter) to play around with, and wrapped it in hockey tape to weigh it down a…"
"I have 1/2" 125 psi, 3/4" 100 psi, 3/4" 160 psi and 3/4" pex. I usually end up switching back and forth, mostly between the 1/2" and 3/4" 100 psi. I was unable to master knee hooping or the escalator until I started…"
"i find them easier to manipulate all the space with. i like to do a whole range of tricks without the hoop even spinning around my abdomen. i noticed heavy hoops are much harder for my hands and wrists to support the way id like :)"
"It's all different strokes.
I use a lighter hoop most of the time.. I'm perpetually pushing lighter and stiffer..
If you get into breaks and reverses and technical off body stuff, the rigidity and light weight gives you more…"
"I'm with you. I love my 3/4" 100psi hoop that is about 38". We just really connected. She was my first light hoop and I was suddenly able to knee hoop.
I haven't tried a 1/2" hoop yet. Not sure how I'll feel about that…"
"That's kinda funny, I usually do things the opposite way. I'll learn a new move with my bigger hoop because I can do it slower, then go back and try it with the lighter hoop. The only way I figured out how to leg hoop was to practice with…"
"im with you guys, i prefer a little heavier hoop. i usually hoop with psi100 3/4", but have a bunch of psi125 1/2" hoops too. i do go back and forth, but mostly to use the lighter hoops when learning a new move that is harder on my body.…"
"I really like the lighter hoop because I find it more difficult. The hoop moves much quicker than my heavier hoops and therefore I have to react quicker. Which in turn forces me to improve. When I master a move on my lighter hoop, I then go back and…"
"lighter hoops take a bit of getting use to but they are great if you like to go fast and for hand flourishes, they are also great for doing more that two hoops in a split. That said if it is to flexible then it sucks.
Light and ridged is what you…"
I agree...total rednecks! And thanks for your comment. I'm sorry for your losses as well. Death is a terribly hard thing to deal with. It does hit with a shock that you can't always react to right away, I know exactly what you mean. Much Hoop Love to you, friend! :)
