There are many types of pole dancing poles you can buy and it can be really difficult choosing the right one to use at home.

Many people think there is a difference between a Stripper Dance Pole and a Fitness Dance Pole. There is no real difference. Stripper poles are a lose term used to describe almost all pole dancing poles on the market, even if they are not used that way. The real difference between a Stripper dance pole and a Fitness Dance Pole is the intentions of the dancer.

If you buy the wrong type of pole for your situation, then it can be dangerous. On the flip side, if you understand the different types of pole dancing poles available and buy the best one that fits the way you plan to use it at home, then you will find that learning to pole dance at home one of the most rewarding things you could do for your emotions and your fitness goals.

You probably already know if you plan to use your dance pole for casual fun and nothing major such as walking sexy around the pole for your husband, or if you are a beginner who wants to use it for fitness and weight loss, or if you plan to do inverting or more advanced pole spins and tricks.

There are different poles for each of those different uses. In addition, you will need to decide if you want a portable and removable dance pole, if you want a spinning pole, and if you need a cheap dance pole due to a limited budget.

Blending all these considerations together will help you buy the best pole dancing pole for your home. There many brands and no brand poles available including the X-Pole, Carmen Electra Pole, Platinum Stages Poles, Lil Mynx and other knock brands you can find on Ebay and Amazon.

Be very cautious about buying pole dancing poles from Ebay and Amazon, here’s a video that will show you why:

  1. So i lost the two little screws that go in the bottom of the pole to make it stationary. How could i go about getting more?

    • Hi Layla, I have some here at the studio. I am working on adding them to the store very soon. They are so tiny many people often lose them 🙂 They are $4.99 for two, that includes shipping anywhere in the USA – would you like me to send you a PayPal invoice? Thanks Danna

  2. Hi!! I’m looking into getting a pole to try before I buy 12 or so. I’m new to the pole buying experience, I watched your videos on it, and do these poles all have the spinning option? I want a pile that spins, but can be stationary as well. What is the best option seeing as how I’m not trying to spend 700 on the floor set. Thank you!!

    • Hi Tiffany!

      Yes these poles are both spinning and static 🙂

      I don’t think you can find a professional grade pole set of 12 or more for $700 though. The cheapest dance pole I have seen is a knock-off brand of the Carmen Electra Pole that has plastic parts on Ebay for about $50 – that pole is not suitable to spin or invert on, even though they say it can hold 200lbs – they are dangerous. Good poles that are good quality and are built to last cost a bit more money to manufacture. We do offer a bulk discount and in your case since you are buying more than ten poles that discount would be 15% off the total for the affordable no brand pole – shipping is still FREE in the USA.

      I know that’s probably higher than what you wanted, but it’s a good pole and worth the price 🙂 Thanks!

  3. Hi! I have a few questions:
    1- The X-pert pole has the stationery and spinning mode? And the dance pol is only stationary?
    2- Don’t you have the 50mm size of the pole?
    3- I’m from Itlay, do you ship to my country?

    Thank you 🙂

  4. Hi! I’ve been searching for Pole kit and there is so many out there to choose from, It make it hard for me to choose which one is the right one for me! I’m 5’3 tall, my weight is 210 something around there, under 220! Is there any pole you recommend me?. I saw some reviews on YouTube about this website and I heard good stuff about these poles,but what I did not heard was about the weight these poles can actually take sense all the ladies that made the review video were skinny and good body shape.

  5. Hi Danna,
    Does the no brand home pole work on popcorn ceiling? What is the minimum radius floor space for pole dancing? I rent an apartment and i don’t have a spare room or anything which i can dedicate to pole dancing.

    • Hi Tanya, yes it will work just fine with a popcorn ceiling, however, it can leave a little ring on the ceiling when you take it down because the dome will knock off some of the texture. This can be repaired by getting a can of spray texture from Ace for “popcorn texture”.

      The minimum radius for pole dancing depends on the size of your body. We all have different length of arms and legs. The best way to decide what is best for you is to put a chair about where you want the pole to be. Hold on to the back of the chair with your right hand and then hold your left arm straight out to the side. You should be standing with both arms extended out as far as they can reach while holding onto the chair with your right hand. Then, walk around the chair in a circle without letting go of the back of the chair. Your fingertips of your left hand shouldn’t touch anything in the room. The circle that you make when you walk is the “approximate” area you would need to dance in for your body type.

      Hope that makes sense 🙂


  6. Hi,
    Just curious about the differences between 40mm, 45mm or 50mm? Meaning is there a reason I should look into getting one size over the other? I am a complete newbie, Thanks for all your help!

    • Hi Monica, the only reason you would be particular about a size is if you have experience as a pole dancer and prefer an existing size or you plan to compete. Since you are a newbie, go with the 45mm. It’s the industrial standard now and if you choose to compete someday then you will be prepared as well 🙂 Hope that helps!

  7. Hey i lost my bag of pole supplys, is there any way i can buy an extra bag or can i get things at home depo or ace?

    • If you email me your original order number I can look in the warehouse for an extra set for you. You can also buy an Allen Wrench set at ACE (costs about $2) and that will unscrew the hex screws in the base to make the pole spinning or static. You can use a pair of Channel locks or a wrench to loosen the nut on the adjuster bar 🙂 Hope that helps!

  8. Hi, just wondering whether any pole would be suitable for use in a rented apartment. (Basically wouldn’t damage the ceiling and is easy to remove for inspections /showings)

  9. Hello I was wondering if the pole is affordable no brand pole is safe for using on carpet and is there anything you need to do differently to install on carpet vs hard floors

  10. which portable pole is best for an apartment im extremely interested in getting a pole but need to be able to disassemble it when need be . I’m not sure what the difference between the X Pert and the NO Brand….please help! lol look forward to your response !!

  11. Hello Danna,
    I have a chrome 45mm pole and it get slippery very quickly. I make sure to wash my hands and not put any lotion on prior to using it and the pole still gets slipery so often I am constantly wiping it.
    do you have any suggestions as to how I can prevent this?

  12. Hi , will you be selling any pole bags (for easy transport/storing) ? I can’t find them a anywhere without them being an outrageous price . I hope you start selling them soon , i would like to buy one for my pole that I’m also purchasing from your site.

    • Thanks Sul, yah there are kindof expensive, we don’t have them as of yet, wish we did. That is one of our many works in progress.

  13. Dear Danna,

    I ordered the affordable no brand pole and received it 2 weeks ago. Shipping was superfast and easy and the pole is fantastic!!!. I love the classes that came with it as well. I only got to use it this weekend due to a business trip and it was absolutely worth the wait :).

    Just wanted to let you know that i am over the moon with my pole and am totally excited to start my journey.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Nan, thank you so much for the fantastic feedback. I am so happy it’s working for you and that you are allowing me to be part of your wonderful journey! Enjoy you pole!!!! 🙂

    • You cannot install the pole to a drop ceiling but you can remove one of the ceiling tiles in the ceiling and run the pole up through to the ceiling above. You would need to remove a ceiling tile to see what kind of roof structure is up in there and hopefully install the pole to a secure location above the drop ceiling. Remember to consult a qualified carpenter if you are not sure. Safety is important. 🙂

  14. Hi purchased a xpert xpole 50mm some years back, and love it. However I moved and my ceilings are 10ft tall, I need a purchase a extension however my pole doesn’t have the xjoints the extensions screw in.. anyway of getting these?

    • Hi Kayla, we don’t sell the X Pole screw together type pole parts, the best way to get those is by contacting the X Pole US division 🙂
