"Hey! I was having really gnarly bruises at first too, but it think I figured it out! Try alternating "pusher" legs. That's really the easiest way for me to keep it in one spot, feels weird/funny at first but it works for me! Good luck!"

"I've always found that I grow into and out of hoops. If one starts feeling too big, I chop it down. If its too big and too heavy, go with a lighter, skinnier tubing. Sometimes you can have a lot of fun playing with hoops that are a weird size…"

"I have to agree with the general consensus. Not a bad thing at all to have a polypro hoop in your arsenal, but don't make it your only hoop. PP is so light, your body can barely feel it. It's far more efficient to learn most moves,…"

"I'd highly suggest you try the 100 psi or 125 psi 1/2 in. pvc tubing (black tubing can be found at lowes or home depot for about $15-$20 100ft.) before you invest in polypro. Polypro tubing is not going to make you a good hooper faster. You…"
