Mighty Hoops
« on: June 24, 2019, 05:44:59 PM »
I'm looking to slowly add mighty hoops to my hoop arsenal and wanted to see which size everyone would suggest for polo shirts/beanies. Is 5.5" the most popular or should I consider going up to the 6.5"?

best investment you'll ever make for embroidery, guaranteed. We have both but we mainly use the 5.5, the 6.5 is a little too big when you try to hoop smaller size polos with the placket....I'd go for 5.5, skip the 6.5...
...keep doing what you're doing, you'll only get what you've got...

We did the change over a year ago. I will say that we would never go back. 5.5 for us.

For doing polos and other lightweight items you might want to also look into the weaker rings. 4.5 & 5.5

From Mighty Hoops website:

"This is an extra ring that has less holding then the normal ring that comes with the hoop. The normal ring is good for thin to thick items, but if you mainly hoop thin shirts, the normal ring has more holding then it needs. This ring can be used for thin items and makes it much easier to remove when the embroidery is complete. This is not needed but can be a good option for customers that embroider a lot of thin items."
