160 psi 1" OD PEX- Heaviest and thickest
Most hoopers prefer 3/4" as it makes transitioning to polypro a fabulous breeze.
Preferred and highly recommended diameters are between 35-37" for greatest benefits, allowance of movement, and unlikelihood of hoop being wonky in shape

--Tubing Selection & Recommendations--
1" PEX: Fabulous for the hooper that is down to chill with the hoop on his or her waist most of the time. Can be quite "heavy" for a hoop; the size and weight may limit ability to progress into the vast world of hoop tricks. Larger surface area makes tapes look stellar as ever and coils well, too. 37" and under in diameter is recommended and is also the Gnar limit.
3/4" PEX: Hands down best for beginners. The added few ounces mean worlds to the control and regulated speed offered by this tubing. Black in color, and a very small bit flexy, this tubing coils like a breeze just like 5/8" Polylpro but offers an experience comparable to 3/4" Polypro - transitioning just got real easy ;) 37" and under in diameter, please
3/4" UV Polypro: Best for polypro beginners, more chill and controlled hooping, and a bit slower flow. Gnar digs the swag; slower sweeping pull-flows offer more controlled manipulations. Dampened response time, stellar for learning new tricks. 37" and under
5/8" UV Polypro: Light weight, responsive, gnarly all around. Fabulous for quick finger-tricks, doubles, minis, and a feather-light experience. SO fun..gotta try it sooner or later, fo sho. 34" and under in diameter is the gnarly recommendation to avoid wonk
