Whenever I practice with Loops, they work perfectly. When I perform with them they usually break. Do any of you have any tips on how to make Loops more flexible?

(Sorry. I didn't know what to classify them as.)

When you go out, use brand new loops. That could be part of your problem there if you are using used loops. Also, clam yourself before your performance. I know that I sometimes get nervous when performing. For me, this has caused my loops to snap because of jerky movements, or not paying enough attention the the actual loops.

Be sure to pre-stress the new loop before you perform.

1) This is to make it easier to extend evenly when you perform.

2) This can test your loop to see if the knot is secure.

Just stretch the loop. It works wonders. And as drewer said always have an extra loop or two on your other wrist.

Stretching them before the performance is best, and also be sure to gentle when performing for an audience. Not sure how many years you have been performing, but a couple friends who are trying Loops, tend to get a little tense and has broken many Loops that way. So relax, slow down a bit and you should do much better.
