I finally got around to trying out this fairly expensive hoop tape (acquired here) to refurbish the few hula hoops that I haven't tossed to the karmic wind, and I have to say that it is some tricky stuff to work with! I may be a traditional hoop tape purist even. I enjoy the malleableness of a good electrical tape, graceful curves and swoops executed with nary a wrinkle. But this new flashy stuff. Well. Does sparkle and gleam always make up for an inherent lack of supple adaptability?
Duh. This is America, of course it does! Oooooh. Sparkly.
