Default Re: 3.0mm hoops anyone?

I have used 1.6mm (batter hoop pulled over head collar) as well as 2.3mm & wooden hoops with out any issues. I don't see a need for 3.0mm hoops on a marching snare unless you tune your snare to those (in my opinion) crazy high formica tabletop tunings I don't think there is any advantage / disadvantage with 3.0mm hoops. If you're going for higher tensions I would go die-cast or s-hoop.
