I know it is not suggested to keep them collapsed for too long, but would it be Ok to practice an hour every couple of days or would it even work at all? I am a little unsure. :/

"try looking up "tape cutter" on Amazon.  I actually use an exacto knife and carefully cut the tape right down the middle on the roll.  It's probably not the safest, mind you! ;) "

thanks for the comment on the 1 handed vortex! so good to hear it was helpful :) yes you definitely want to use a smaller hoop for this trick! the tubing i'm using in that video is 1/2 in 100 psi an about 35 inches. but even if you gradually move down even to 40 inches or lower the psi to 100 i think that would be helpful. and it may take a while to build that arm muscle to and just teach your muscles what to do. I did start hooping with a bigger one though and gradually downsized. Now I hoop w 1/2 in 32 inch 100 psi let me know if i can help you out anymore! keep practicing :)

Hi Jennifer, ^_^

I want to know how your new hoop(s) came out.
But I also want to help you find some better quality stuff to work with. Do you have a theater supply or an electrical supply store where you live? Here we have an electrical store called "Rexel" and I think it is a chain so see if maybe you have one.

oh wait....Google...

Look: You HAVE ONE IN LYNCHBURG: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENUS339&ei=WKvgS4fpH57k9AT5iIXYAQ&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&ved=0CAUQBSgA&q=rexel+lynchburg+va&spell=1

rexel's website:

http://www.rexelusa.com/

Call or just go in there and ask if they carry gaff tape or spike tape.
I buy it from Rexel here in Winston-Salem. I also order it online or get it from a local theatrical supply house.
These tapes are made of cotton cloth and are are a thousand times easier to use than duct tape. They roll on SMOOTH, and they are super-grippy for your skin and clothing. Buy rolls in one-inch width for the gaff. I think the spike tape is always a half-inch wide. Combine it with electric tape, which is also super-easy to use and you should be on your way to some cute new hoops.

oh...something else I found at Wal-Mart but have not tried to use yet is clear electric tape. They put it separate from the other tapes, back in the hardware section, but I want to try putting down a layer of skinny ribbon and covering it under a line of the clear electric tape for protection. You might try this too!

good luck to you! I hope you post photos of your new hoops!
