BendyWicks Fire Hula Hoop Spines are removable wicks that quickly clip onto your hoop to instantly turn your regular hula hoop into a fire hoop. This set contains five simple and quick wicks that will fit any hula hoop made from 3/4" (20mm) diameter tubing (hoop not included).
Five wicks are a popular choice with fire hoopers. These five Bendy Wicks should be evenly spaced when clipped onto your hoop, where the tips of a five-pointed star would be (see the pictures for an illustration). For a set of six BendyWicks, click here
These fire hoop spines are made from high quality stainless steel. The flexible stainless steel wire rope that makes the shaft of the wick is capable of absorbing the impact from drops and limits the heat transfer from the wick to the hoop.
The wicks are made from a 15 3/4" (400mm) length of 2" (50mm) wide para-aramid webbing rolled into a wick that is approximately 1 3/8" (35mm) in diameter. These wicks will give you decent size flames with a good burn time. When attached to your hoop the wicks will be approximately 5 1/8" (130mm) from the hoop. Each spine weighs 1.7oz (48g) so this set of five will add 8.5oz (240g) to your hula hoop.
The clips, that attach the spine to the hoop, are also high grade stainless steel. These clips fit 3/4" (20mm) hoops and can be loosened, tightened or opened completely with a flat head screwdriver. Instructions are provided.
Fire hoops should only be used by experienced hoopers. For fire safety information, click here
