The pole dancing pole that you choose is best for you might not be the on that is best for everyone – which is why we think a shop such as www.polesport.co.uk which is not affiliated to any particular manufacturer can offer you the best advice. This is basically what they told us …
- Don’t worry about budget – you get what you pay for and ll pole dancing poles ae great value for money – it only takes a few self-led pole dancing classes at home to balance the books
- Get a spinning pole if you can – they all have the ability t be locked into a static position, so get the versatility of both.
- Free standing pole dancing poles are really not required, they are expensive and quite heavy and are only needed if you’re ceiling is over 3.4m. Instead look for a brand such as X-Pole that offers a range of pole extensions to cater (almost) every height of ceiling.
- Get a surface finish hat you like the look of – they all claim to be “sticky”, but this is not true – just select on looks and maybe get a pink pole if you are feeling a bit fancy.
- If you really, really think you’ll never be leaving the floor then a peekaboo stripper pole is fine – but for everyone else then consider a true Sport pole – which is sturdy and will give you the confidence to attack it with vigour.
- Don’t get a pole that will require to be permanently fixed – this is so inflexible as to be really, really awkward – do you really want to only use it in one place??? Surely you will be taking it from room to room – and perhaps even into the bedroom for special occasions.
- Consider the quality of service – what are the delivery times, what are the guarantees?
OK, so that is the basic buyers guide – also thin about what diameter you want? Poleates.net suggests that you use the widest pole you can manage – 50mm – this is the standard and is also noticeably more sturdy when it comes to portable pole dancing poles.
