Thanks Chris, I used these when our club made all it's gates this year. FYI The hoops you made for me years ago are still holding up very well and are used at all our trials.

Can you still use x-pen panels still?

If you are referring to using x-pens in X-Hoopers the answer is yes.  I think this is just instructions for people that want to make/use gates.  A lot of people use them for all kinds of foundation and directional training, not just for X-Hoopers.

Is it still permissible to use 3 gates per side and 2 gates for the wings or must a club use the 4 gates per side and 3 for the wings?

If all you have is enough for 3 and 2, then use those.  If you can use 4 and 3 that is better.  Be sure to let the judge know if you are using 3 and 2 so the yardage can be adjusted.  Now that X-Hoopers is a normal NADAC class, the yardage needs to be adjusted for the shorter yardages when there are 3 in the circle and 2 on the wings so the run index is correct.

Thanks!  We will try to get the additional gates to build the bigger circle.

This is very helpful Chris - I guess this weekend I will be building some new gates!

    I have some older PVC supports that I used with Hula Hoops.  Some of my supports are 1/2 inch PVC and some are 3/4 inch PVC.   I want to convert them to tubing rather than PVC.  What kind and dimension of tubing do I need to buy for the tubing?  Thanks, Norma Gaddy

The 3/4" pvc takes 1/2" PEX (more flexible for water delivery).  Depends on your video camera whether you will prefer 3/4" pvc or 1" pvc.  I find with the 3/4" pvc and 1 fixed camera, I do not have enough pixels to tell if all hoops are in the field of view.  Sometimes I have run out to the final hoop with an open umbrella to make sure I have it in field of view (have missed it on occasion).
