The Phoenix is the brainchild of Hoopdaddy, but has been since handed over to the very capable hands of Spin-FX. The updated 2016 version of the Phoenix hoop includes: up to 4 hour battery life, 2 hour quick charge time, brighter LEDS, an upgraded power button, and a new bluetooth system compatible with both IOS & Android! Plus, the Phoenix has a great pattern designer system which allows you to upload any image you want to use as a pattern on the hoop, just like the Hyperion. The main differences between this hoop and the Hyperion is the Phoenix features a gapless design, and has and internal battery. The Hyperion has about an inch gap to allow you to use interchangeable batteries to keep the hoop glowing all night long. But if you are a hooper looking for the brightest hoop with the crispest and most unique patterns, the Phoenix may be the best choice for you!
