Hoop Tubing Types
So many hoop tubing types to choose from! Struggling to find the best hoop tubing type for your experience level and body type? Let this short guide help you choose the best hula hoop for you.
A lightweight, bouncy material that is great for hula hoops. It is ideal for those who want to do hand tricks and waist hooping. It can be sensitive in the heat and cold. IE it can get hot and reshape in the car mid-summer, or it can shatter in the cold. All hoops come with free repairs. Polypro is the most popular choice of my hoop tubing types.
Comes in skinnier lighter 5/8″ tubing size OR thicker 3/4″. Polypro hoops come bare and coloured or taped. It is also available for DIY projects.
More rigid than polypro, this tubing is great for outdoor winter play and fire hoops. For taped hoops only. The weight will also make it easier to learn waist hooping. It comes in 5/8 or 3/4.
1″ Blue HDPE
This 1″ blue tubing is the best for focusing on waist hooping for fitness, They are NOT good for hand hooping. These hoops are the heaviest and only come taped. They are best in size 36″ to 44″, though if you are doing a DIY job you can make it up to size 58″.
