As for the curve of the back of caps, I've used a radius of about 8 - 10 and
straighten out the cap back to accommodate the curve of the design.  That
way you can get the fabric taut and still achieve the curve after you
reattach the strap on the cap.

I' ve tried following the link to see the hooptec frame for the amaya-but
have no idea 'where' to look once I get to that website. Could someone post
me the exact link to find it? I'm turning down a good hat order because I
can't do the back
I was playing around with the hoops last week, and on an unstructured cotton
canvas hat, the 4" (smallest hoop I have) actually held the back of the hat
securely but I didn't try sewing on it-would have to take time to figure out
the curve of the 'ponytail hole' to get the lettering evenly around it. Then
the trick is to line up each hat dead on level....
