Default Drum Hoops

I've got a little change in my pocket, and I'd like to change out the hoops on my M Birch set. I would like to upgrade to the Mapex 2.3mm power hoops, but I cannot find them anywhere online. Are these offered to the general public? Are there any other better suggestions as far as drum hoop options go?

Before you go with a "higher range" Mapex hoop...count your lugs. One of the differences with the M-Birch versus the other lines is the number of lugs per drum on some sizes. IIRC, there were only six lugs per head even on the 14" drum. I'll check it out tonight to confirm, then get back with you.
