Hyperbola Hoops replied to the discussion 'Cooked...'
"Ok, so it looks like it is a Sunhoop, which in itself presents a new challenge, even to an experienced fire hooper. Did this happen on their first burn with it? Did they lend it to a friend? I can guarantee that is a LOT of fire to suddenly be…"

Hyperbola Hoops replied to the discussion 'Single Mini LED for reasonable price?'
"I would also be happy to do a single 25" hoop for a very reasonable price.  Definitely shop around so you know you're getting exactly what you want, but if you are interested, you can reach me at info@hyperbolaonline.com.  If you…"

Hyperbola Hoops replied to the discussion 'Do you retape your hoops?'
"The only thing I have to add is that I've found deco tape never really looks the same on a re-tape as it would a fresh hoop. All the little scuffs and scratches dig through the tape and into the tubing itself, so the shiny tape doesn't go…"

Hyperbola Hoops replied to the discussion 'Lithium Ion Rechargeable Batteries Dangerous/ Fire'
"Many circuits have this weakness: if you attach the power source backwards it will fry the circuit - in your case, the battery.  If the hoop still works with a different battery, you are very lucky!"

"Thanks Martika!  I agree: it sounds like a good batch/bad batch thing, but it's certainly something to look out for!  We have had good results with Tenergy batteries, and they also make a LiFePo4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) type of…"

Hyperbola Hoops replied to the discussion 'retubing a rattling LED hoop help'
"Unfortunately I do not live in New England, but I AM in the NYC metro area.  I make LED hoops and would be happy to re-tube your hoop, wrap the strand so it doesn't rattle, and install a battery that is a bit lighter.   If you…"

Hyperbola Hoops replied to the discussion 'PEX tubing'
"Sonja, Quick answer: I personally wouldn't recommend PEX for minis, unless it specifically says on the tubing that it is 125 PSI or less (at 73 degrees F - PEX often has ratings at different temperatures printed on it, but 73 degrees is the…"

"Im glad you posted this!  perfect timing for me to read this, I was just watching 'made in America' on abc like 20 minutes ago.  I personally rather spend a little bit more money and help local/fellow hoopers  (Americian…"

"You make a good point about the people overseas needing jobs and money, too.  I mean (and this is just what I've read, I haven't seen anything firsthand), if long hours and low wages are the only option for feeding your family, what…"

"I would only imagine that you could start networking with these individuals and companies, as well as buy stock in their products. That way you can still make money from them. "

"Hmmm. All this time I thought alibaba was a fake website stealing images from others and always wondered how they weren't getting shut down, lol. This is interesting.    I don't think I care too much about "buying…"

"Everyone makes some great points.  These are exactly the kinds of thoughts that have been on my mind over the years as I have been researching and developing the hoops I sell.  First there's the supply chain issue: I can't shake…"

""This also begs the question, how much of the supplies that go into making hoops are locally made?"   This is an excellent point... I was thinking about this a few days ago when thinking about "locally made" clothing. All…"

"Wow, this has been on my mind for quite some time now. I built my own LED hoop using a battery module kit from Prodmod.com, and then I decided to research how to make more from scratch and sell them on etsy (never got that far). It's not that…"

"Very informative post. I thank you for researching this topic. I am surprised with what I have found on this site. Many hoop companies seem to already be outsourcing and getting their hoops in China. I do not want to directly call them out but I…"
