Single Tab Lyra
I bought my single tab Lyra from Coggs Circus. I absolutely love it. If I could have done anything differently I would not have paid for the extra tab. Tabless is the way to go!
Many Lyras vary in the size of the circumference of the hoop. I have used the ones from aerial essentials and the circumference was small and hard. It bruised a lot more and was not an apparatus I wanted to spend time on.
Coggs built the Lyra to the size of my body. It fits like a glove!

Portable Aerial Rig
My very first aerial rig is an xpole a frame rig. It holds up to 1,600 pounds and is safe for two aerialists at one time.
This adjustable rig ranges from 8ft – 11ft. This rig is up and ready within 10 minutes and is easily portable.
This rig is a great starter rig for beginners and comes at a lower cost at $700 compared to other rigs that start at $1500. I was looking into a professional Ludwig rig. The tripod rigs breaking point was 1500 pounds 100 pounds less than the xpole. At twice the price I decided to go for the xpole rig.
If you are looking for a professional rig that I would definitely go with a Ludwig. Their rigs will raise you sky high and allow small bomb drops on silks.
When buying your first set of aerial silks you want to ensure that you go with a low stretch option. Medium stretch silks are for intermediate to advanced aerialists. Medium stretch is softer on drops although it is much harder to climb. If you are considering a medium stretch I would recommend trying them first. Sarasota warrior has great aerial silks packages that include all of the hardware you will need to rig your new apparatus.
Just remember when buying your silk you want it to be at least twice the length of the area you are rigging from and plus another minimum two feet of fabric for the tails.
