Hi, Yea love Reno hoopers! I haven't gotten to participate in a Sunday hoop jam yet. The weather has been so chilly. I want to go sometime.
I now have a huge indoor space off Longley Avenue. I want to host hoop jams durning the week at this location. Its been a work in progress since the beginning of the year.
Sunday I have a nice group hooping & walking the 5K Moms on the Run. Should be fun!

Hi Liz,
good questions...

-the metal ring (the clamp) does not get hot, nor does the bottom half of the spine closest to the hoop (surprisingly) -its because just like water gets spun outwards due to the centrifugal force, the same applies to the heat.

-I suggest using a layer or two of gaff under the clamp to protect the hoop a little bit - as the clamp holds very tightly to the hoop and can make a slight indention. with the tape, it leaves your hoop unscathed.

-I don't know of a kind of tubing/plastic that is less resistant to melting, but its easily avoidable (just don't hold the firehoop still in a vertical position.)

-some use protective (kevlar) sleeves while hooping, although that takes some of the danger out of it =)

-the hoop tubing does not get hot

glad to help, hollar back if you have any more questions.
cheers!
Scott
