Connectors don't fit- any advice?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kortney 'Kid A' Bewley Jan 13, 2011. 3 Replies

I recently bought some new tubing and connectors, but when I went to make my first hoop with them the 3/4" connectors were to loose for the 3/4" 100 PSI Sil-O-Flex tubing.  I don't know what kind of…

"Oh, I see the difference very plainly- thanks so much.  I was comparing my old tubing with my new and noticed that even though they are the same outside diameter the wall of the new tubing is thinner than that of the old.  So that would be…"

"If you want to make infinity hoops, you need the Lasco connector at the bottom of the picture (part # 1429-007). Are you sure you didn't pick up 1/2" connectors? Even the Genova 3/4" should fit snugly. You should have to really push…"

Connectors don't fit- any advice?

I recently bought some new tubing and connectors, but when I went to make my first hoop with them the 3/4" connectors were to loose for the 3/4" 100 PSI Sil-O-Flex tubing.  I don't know what kind of connectors they are, but they are gray.  Is there any way to shrink the tubing at the ends so that it fits securely?  I am wanting to make infinity hoops, so if anybody knows how to accomplish that with what I have, please let me know.  Or if you know what I need to get in order to successfullly…See More

Miss T commented on the blog post 'Why?'
"Thanks guys so much for the suggestions. I feel like the higher I keep my shoulder the harder it slaps and then falls. I know with my dominant current it took me a while to find a happy medium so I guess I'm just not at the point yet. And…"

Sarah "Dwiizie" commented on the blog post 'Why?'
"I am going through the exact same scenario right now, and with a little collaborative efforts, I figured out what the problem is. So my dominant direction is counter clockwise, so the issue was going the other way. I, too, had the flopping up to the…"

"Remember to really stick your shoulder up. Reeeeaallly get it up there so the hoop has something to rotate around. :)"

Why?

Why does shoulder hooping have to be so difficult to do? It took me months of practice to get it in my dominant current but now it is super easy that way. The opposite current on the other hand is driving me nuts. Every other opposite current move I learned took time, but not near as long as learning it in my dominant current- not this time. I can do it but it is not at all smooth and I usually can't keep it up for very long. And when it is up it is on my neck flopping around 75% of the time. I…See More

Miss T replied to the discussion 'Second Current'
"I love the video and blindfold ideas, I am going to have to try them. I have been working on non-dominant hooping as well and managed to get the knees rather easily, and I eventually got chest hooping but I am still struggling with shoulder hooping.…"

Selling Hoops

I have quickly become obsessed with hooping, but also with making hoops. Just as quickly I have gained more hoops than I ever thought I'd have, plus I have more ideas so I am looking into selling them. I'm at a complete loss as to what I need to do in order to be set up to take on such an undertaking so if anybody has any tips I would LOVE to hear them. Tips on materials to use, where to get materials, shipping methods, prices, anything and everything that you could possibly come up with.

Miss T replied to the discussion 'Recent Accomplishments. What have you "nailed" recently?'
"I just got shoulder hooping in my dominant current and chest hooping in the other current. I'm so excited, but I still need to get shoulder hooping in the other current and then I will be extatic. Congrats on your accomplishments! And the…"

Miss T replied to the discussion 'Nikki Basshead vs. Yadida Rapcat' in the group Hoop Competitions
"Both show a lot of talent with the hoop and Yadida's went with the music a little more I think, but Nikki had good flow and it kept my attention a little more, so my vote goes to Nikki."
