COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT POLYPRO HULA HOOPS

 

WHAT IS A POLYPRO HOOP, ANYWAYS?

Polypro is a nickname given to the type of plastic that these hoops are made out of. 

Wikipedia states- “Polypropylene (PP), also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling,textiles (e.g., ropes, thermal underwear and carpets), stationery, plastic parts and reusable containers of various types, laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, automotive components, and polymer banknotes.”……and now Hula Hoops!

 

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT IT? 

Polypro hoops are lighter, stiffer, more springy and reactive. In hooping terms they are quicker, lighter, more responsive and generally a lot better than the standard hardware store irrigation tubing historically used to make hoops. 

 

ISN'T LIGHTER MORE DIFFICULT?

Yes and no. The first time you get to work with a polypro hoop it will feel light and a little strange. Give it about 30 minutes (or less) and you will be in LOVE! 

Lighter hoops move faster than a heavier hoop and they are also a lot more responsive to your body movements. 

 

WILL A PP HOOP MAKE ME A BETTER HOOPER?

Most definitely, but it’s not going to happen without some effort on your part. It’s not like you can just buy a polypro hoop and suddenly be as skilled as Rachael Lust (she’s incredible, by the way. (and she’s sponsored by us!! Eeeeee!!! (excited noise)))

...ok, where was I? Oh yes, you need to practice. 

Polypro hoops require a faster hooping style and they also open up a whole new book of tricks and moves that will not feel as good without a polypro hoop. 

 

DO I NEED A SMALLER HOOP? CAN YOU TELL ME WHY? 

Polypro hoops are most optimal at a size of 36” or less. At 37” they tend to coil in on themselves due to the natural curve of the tubing. 

A smaller hoop will allow you to do more off-body style tricks and give you more freedom of movement.  

 

WAIT, WHAT’S 3/4” and 5/8” OD TUBING? 

This refers to the size of the tubing measured at its widest point. A ¾” hoop is the “standard” size that most people use. It is a very good hoop to get if you are just starting out with a polypro hoop. To give you an idea of the size of this tubing, I can fit my pointer finger in it.

5/8", on the other hand, is only big enough for my pinky. 

...and now I have hoops stuck on both hands. :)

 

A 5/8” hoop is going to be thinner, lighter, and a little more flexible. The people that buy these hoops are usually professional performers or someone that is very small and light. This would be closer to a kid's hoop size and weight. 

 

AND WHAT ABOUT GRIP, WHAT’S THAT?

Grip refers to what we do to the inside surface of your hoop (where it comes into contact with the body most). Without any grip, the hoop might want to slip down your body depending on what fabric your clothes are made out of. Adding some grip (sanding or tape) will help the hoop to stay on your body and make it easier to learn.

If you have any other questions please DO ask them. WE LOVE talking to our fellow hoopers (and soon-to-be hoopers) and helping them get the hoop of their dreams.
