Perhaps these power hoops are just taller? Personally, it shouldn't matter what kind of rim it is. You learn how to do a rim shot on what you have and then put the time in playing them. I've played all kinds of drums with all kinds of rims and making rim shots on any has never been an issue. Perfect practice makes perfect!
