Intermediate/Advanced Poly Pro Hoops

Size Guide

Thanks for looking to Radiant Life for your new hoops! I hope this guide can help answer your questions about your new polypro hoop size. If you have further questions please contact me!

If you have been using the same size beginner hoop for a while and feel like you want to expand your flow you may want to get a smaller hoop! I recommend choosing a new size that is 2″- 4″ smaller than your current hoop.

Where to start?

Tall – 30″ or larger

Short – 28″ or larger.

The smaller the hoop, the faster, bouncier, and lighter it is. The larger the hoop the slower and less bouncy.

Small hoops are harder for the waist. Large hoops can be more difficult for hand tricks. This goes for diameter and tubing size.

Taped hoops are heavier. They *should* be used on the grass to preserve the tape job. They are brilliant in the sun.

Bare Polypro hoops are lighter and can be tossed around and left in the rain and they will always look the same. They get scratched but not noticeably

My Favourite Polypro Hoop Size

It has changed as I have learned more tricks and progressed in my journey. I started with a 3/4″ 36″, then went down to 3/4″ – 32″ diameter after a year. near the end of my second year of hooping, I went down to a 5/8″ 32″ then 5/8″ 28″ 6 months later.

Doubles:

I started with 5/8 32″ then went down to 5/8 28″ which is my current favourite size and the one I recommend.
