In my opinion.....Hoop Master, hands down. However, I would consider what types of garments and logo sizes you handle the most. Hoop Master magnetic frames are pricey and somewhat limited in sizes, but I love mine. Less stress on your hands and arms, handles heavier weight garments and pieces much better, less chance of burnishing garments, and things like totes, computer bags, etc. are a snap to hoop. I have an All In One Hooper as well, (started with that) and rarely use it anymore.

Hooper Master just so easy to use. Tried the all in one very hard to us. I have been embroidering for 16 year. Any machine is a good one as long as you take care of it.

1) The placement marks for various sizes are wrong... like, WAY wrong.
2) The angle is very uncomfortable for hooping unless your 7 feet tall. In our market, experienced machine operators seem to be 5' 5" tall or shorter
3) Ours is mounted on a 30"h bench, I am 5' 10" tall, and I find it very tiresome after a full day of hooping.
4) It's cumbersome to adjust for various sizes.
5) It does work well for hat backs, sleeves, jacket backs etc but left and right chests are a more painful.
6) Over the last 2 years we have had some very experience people come in as hired guns to help get out large 2k pc jobs. Not one would use it. They all hooped the garments freestyle.

When you have one you get use to it. I can set up for size/location, hoop, trim previous run before the current run is done so... It's not worthless :-)

What you will need to do is tell them the brand names of your machines. They put the metal brackets on the hoops to fit your particular machine(s). You will have to ask them if it will fit both of your machine types, as I believe some do cover more than one brand. They cover quite a range of brands. Here is a current list: Allied, Tajima, Barudan, Brother, SWF, Happy, ZSK, Melco, Toyota, HoopTech, Durkee,
Meistergram, Feiya, Axiom, Aemco, Prodigy,, Inbro, Generations
Ricoma, Phoenix, Sheen, Consew, Vital Link
They also can provide fixtures that will use your tubular hoops. Be aware you will need to purchase each fixture size per hoop size. As I stated above, it can get quite pricey, but we started with 2 sizes only, then added a jacket back size, then extra hoops. That wasn't quite as "ouchy" on the pocket book so to speak. One thing to note is they are rather bulky so may not always fit into an area your regular tubular hoops may have, such as a port pocket for embroidery. We picked up a few items off of e-bay after we purchased the initial package.

Is amazing how many fellow embroiders won't recommend the all in one hooper. All with the same issue of how inaccurate the hooping is in left and right chest!
