Ninja Hoops are our lightest weight and the 5/8″ are the lightest of these. The lighter the hoop the more you have to move quickly and precisely. These are often used mainly for off-body moves and hand manipulation tricks by advanced hula hoopers. These are not recommended for beginners as precision is required nor for children as these will bend or kink if forced.
Weight: Weight is approximately 6 oz (170 g).
Plastic-type 5/8″ O.D. Polypro: Outer diameter of the plastic tube is 5/8″. Wall is 1/16″. The plastic-type is polypropylene, a plastic that offers a perfect amount of rigidity and flex and just the right amount of weight for advanced hoop dance moves. This plastic is durable but is vulnerable to cracking especially with hard breaks and especially if it is cold. Not recommended for young children since it is more vulnerable to cracking.
Size for hoop: is measured in inches and refers to the full assembled outer diameter size. See the size chart in the FAQ for size recommendations.
