"now back to you, tweed---
heres what i ordered & a few shots. (hard to take good photos of clear stuff!)
for the 1/2" OD hoops i had to use larger 5/8" tubing for the connectors. when i tried the smaller 3/8" connectors, the…"
"ok mike, back to breaks. i hooped for quite a bit today with the bubble ring doing a lot of breaks. & i think mostly what i notice (& something that i forgot to mention earlier) is that its kinda hard on your body for doing A LOT of breaks.…"
"for some reason im having problems replying to replies on the page here.they are being covered by the stuff over here!--------------------->
so ill have to just generally reply.
anyways, tweed, if you can wait for a bit, ill let you know what i…"
"yes! it was a gamble, because i really didnt know how they would work out. plus the fact that you cant get the tube longer than 8 feet. but i took the chance because i didnt want to ruin my bubble ring, & i figured i could play around with the…"
"hey tweed, just saw on your post that you were trying to make one from tubing from usplastics. if you havent made one yet--->
thats how i actually got my smaller 34" hoop. i didnt use any glue at the connections (2 of them) & so far it…"
"so i just went to do some breaking with the hoop & its a little more wonky, but i think its just a matter of getting used to it & controlling it (part of a good challenge!). in the short time that i was just out there, i was able to control…"
Hi Beth!! It is nice to hear from other hoopers so thanks for contacting me! I think Brecken's class is definitely worth signing up for! Even though I haven't gone through too many of them - there is a lot of content, and well worth it. I am already in all SaFire's classes - and work with minis and two hoops on the body, as well as a single, so since I am all over the place I haven't spent a dedicated time with Brecken.
I don't work in the summer so I plan to really study them then. I also love taking all the classes with me on my Iphone to the gym, and wherever I have time to study them! I teach, as well as take classes, learn from DVDs, and watch free online tutorials but love learning from SaFire's classes the most.
I have watched quite a few of Brecken's wave classes and like her style - and she also explains things well. As well, at the end of the class/video the trick is shown in slow motion and then SaFire adds her own comments, and explanations, which I truly love. I'd say most of Brecken's stuff is off body and best learned with a lighter, smaller hoop. I know SaFire already commented back to you - but thought I'd offer my opinion! Do you also work with the mini/poi style hooping?
Thanks Beth!! Hey, why is there tape around your switch? I've heard I'm supposed to rivet it, so it stays secure...um Adam had a tut....I'll try to find it and see if you can add it to your awesome page!!!!
I've never tested one LED at a time because I was worried it would be too much power at once. I usually have a string of at least 5 before I hook up a battery to test. Other than that, maybe the LED itself was faulty? I didn't use the resistors on my twins either.
Oh Beth! I feel so bad that you deleted your discussion. There are some benefits to friction tape. There are just some other considerations to think about also but I know quite a few people who really love it, especially in winter when you don't have to worry about getting it on your clothes. Please don't ever censor yourself because of input from me. People benefit from your wisdom and from the discussions they generate. We need your discussions! All of them! Love love love to you girl!
