"In my experience, most of the beginners in my classes tend to gravitate to the 3/4 inch 100 PSI hoops.  I have some 160 PSI, (also some superpex and polypro) but almost all go for the one I mentioned.  Good luck and have fun!"

"I think the 3/4" 160 psi would probably be good so the actual tubing isn't so big, but it still has the weight... but Tink brings up a good point about bruising!  beginners definitely wouldn't benefit a lot from using polypro,…"

"You'll be fine with either. See what's available. If you can get the specs for the materials, do a little math. See how many grams/meter (or oz/ft) and then multiply by the number of meters you'll use for each hoop. That will give you…"
