Am looking for a collapsible fire hoop or quick connect style wicks, it could be in good used condition or new! also looking for staff, fans or other fire toys, I live in canada so shipping gets a bit expensive... willing to barter, trade, offer up first child (lol) pay cash etc... will also gladly take such things off your hands if they are just sitting around collecting dust!!! Free is always nice...I am a welder and tradeswoman, would gladly barter work for said items... but alas then you…See More
"I am not completely sure, but as I work in the trades I believe the colours are codes to indicate what the pex tubing can and can not be used for, for hoopers though I would imaging it will make a difference for weight and ridgidity (sp), we have a…"

I'm wondering if the odd shaped bit on your hoop that you're cutting down is where the connector is? (what did you use for a connector?) I just recently made a pvc hoop and because the tubing isn't as rigid as pex it's definitely a little 'flat' where the connection is and the few inches of space that the connector takes up inside. No way around that. PS. I hate the pvc hoop, too light and flimsy, it's like working with a happy but extremely drunk friend..ahahha! I'll just use it to practice hand tricks and off body moves and then transition back to my heavier hoop.
Hi there! Thanks for the comment! Gah, actually it made me rewatch that after not really looking at it since I posted it. I've been hooping now over a year, and goodness there as been a lot of growth! Hehe. Made me feel pretty happy.
Don't worry, you'll get there and post one! And, I need to post a current one! LOL
What size is the plus sized hoop that you posted about? (outer diameter, in inches). I use 3/4" pex (brand name is SuperPex), 180 psi and even my biggest hoops hold their shape (i have a really big and awesome 56" hoop, that I've had since last year and it is still going). What tubing did you use?
Let's put our heads together and maybe we can figure out what happened with your hoop. Do you have a picture?
Talk soon! Dreena
