    Default Buying a pole for a friend.. Help!!

    A friend of mine just quit dancing for school, but is looking for a pole so she can stay in shape. Unfortunately, she lives in a really old, oddly constructed house with very specific requirements if she wants a pole.

    Shes looking for a gold pole, less than 7 ft tall, can be set to spin or not, and screws into the ceiling.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Much appreciated!!

    So anyway, looking through Amazon, I saw one, it's 1k, But, it does self level, you don't need a ladder, it has rave reviews

    https://xpoleus.com/product/45mm-chr...rt-nx-model-2/

    $389 +shipping in the titanium gold finish.

    Xpole is the only home pole I would recommend to anyone. They are a pro-quality pole and do both static and spin. They don't screw into the roof but they're as secure tension mounted (and in some cases more secure than...) as any club pole I've danced on.

    Are they easy to install?^
    From what I see in description, it sounds like the one on Amazon, that one's a much better price!
    It says no ladder needed, also like the other one
    What diameter is good for home use?
    Thanks!

    Yes, X-Pole is meant to be easily set up and removed. I had one and once you knew how to do it it could be up and down in minutes. Nice if you need to hide sometimes from landlord/visitors etc

    Also missed your question about size- get the 45mm. It's a nice balanced size. 40mm is quite small, it makes hand grip easier but isn't as nice for tricks where you squeeze with your legs. Most club poles are 50mm (ish) which is pretty thick for most ladies' hands. In the club I mean you dance with what you get and make it work lol but as a pole for fun and practicing I'd get the 45.

    Lol one small town I danced at had a home build pole that was literally like both of my hands around... another was literally a powder-coated piece of pipe. What are guys thinking when they make clubs sometimes??

    Boobs, boobs, ass, boobs. I think that about sums up the thought process!

    As for the rest of the suggestions, thank you very much! She s adamant that the pole be able to screw on, and everything I've seen is tension mounted. Any other options out there?

    https://www.lilmynx.com/index.php/ --> Has screw in ceiling mount but only comes in stainless steel or powder coated black/pink/red. Lil Minx has a good rep, although I can't comment on it personally having never used one.

    https://lupitpole.com/shop/lupit-pol...ent-poles.html --> Has ceiling mounted option in brass. They ship from Slovakia though and appear to start at ~$520 before shipping. I've never heard of them prior to searching but they provide poles for some of the competitions so they have to be decent.

    X-Pole is the way to go.

    I have an anodized steel pole (the same they use for traffic signs) that I have tied to a beam in my ceiling when the landlords aren't coming up here, but that beam makes it super easy.

    Screwing it into the ceiling will only work if you know exactly where to screw it.
