Triple Threat

I preparation for the second class in the series of circus style hooping classes that Jenny is teaching and I am attending, I decided to make what I am dubbing the Triple Threat Hoops, which are basically just a set of three polypro matched trio of hoops that I whipped together last night.

I didn’t use really expensive hoop tape on them, mostly because the sparkly ones are too wide and I’d have to cute them down anyway, so I decided to use electrical tape, this transparent colored tape called Plexi Deco,  and what gaffer grip tape I had on hand, which wasn’t much.  I stretched it across all three, so at least they have some grip to them.

The tubing I used wasn’t normal polypro, but rather it was repurposed polypro, i.e. recycled, tubing from hoopsupplies.com.  It only comes in 5/8″ outer diameter size, but it’s decent to handle, though it is a little harder to get the connectors in.  I recommend getting an appropriately sized HDPE connector rather than a polypro one.  It seemed easier to insert using the one I had.   The tubing only comes in black, but it still is san-dable and tape-able.

I’m anxious to give these hoops a spin tonight in class, and am looking forward to another hard workout.  I have a lot of steam to blow off tonight.  I’ll tell you about that next post as to why.

Until then, keep on hooping!
