Hello all! I'm going to be on a study abroad trip in Italy for six weeks this summer (for all of June) and I'm spending the majority of my time in Rome.

"If the company that makes it won't do it for you, but you're really in love with the LEDs in your hoop, I'd suggest sending it to Ryan from Illumi-Nation Hoops. He remade my PSI for me and I've never had a better LED hoop.
"it looks like user damage to me. i can't imagine just fire hooping normally with it would create that kind of damage. if they are new to fire hooping, perhaps they're just not as aware of the flame as they should be?"
"I have a 32" HDPE that I coil down all the time. I coiled my 30" poly once, but I got really nervous about kinking it, so I haven't done it again. It's hard to explain how to do it in text - but search YouTube. There's…"
