There are lots of different pole dance poles on the market right now which can be used as professional poles, for pole dancing classes, portable pole dancing poles or for the home for private use. It’s imperative that you pick a sturdy pole that will be safe to use, right for you and your situation and also one that you are definitely able to install properly – if you need some pointers on how to choose one check out my pole guide here.
I’ve compiled a list of some of the top rated pole dancing poles for sale…
X Pole XPert 45mm Chrome – Static And Spinning – Professional Pole Dancing Kit

- Available in 40mm, 45mm and 50mm diameter tube sizes
- Available in various different finishes
- Static and spinning options
- Micro articulating base – easy to set up on uneven floor

The Xpert Pole from X Pole is a very popular choice, especially for advanced level and professional pole dancers but it is also suitable for a beginner looking to continue their training. It can be used at home or in a studio.
Pros: Easy to set up. Spinning and Static Function. Sturdy and reliable. Used by professionals. Lots of different diameter and material/colour options. Comes with carry case. “Worth every penny”
Cons: One of the more expensive options so might not be ideal if you’re starting out and not fully invested in pole yet. Takes less weight than others claim to.
(The X Pole Sport is similar but doesn’t have a spinning option so is slightly cheaper)
- Extendable from 7’4″ – 9’3″ft
- 45mm Pole
- No ceiling fixings required.
- High grade electroplated chrome.
- Angular stability lock, helps stabilise your Pole.
- Max load weight: 440lbs/200kg
The Mega Brand Pole is one of the cheaper options on the market but still gets lots of great reviews. It has been described by most people as sturdy and easy to install with a bit of help, there is also an instructional video available to help.
Pros: Great as a portable pole dancing pole. Spinning and static functions. Good for a budget pole. Suitable for inverts and climbs as well as spins.
Cons: Doesn’t include carrying case. There are some mentions of the metal defecting or bending, but seems like a rare occurrence. Also some mentions of the pole moving positions after a while but seems easy enough to rectify.

And for those just looking for a pole for a party or for the bedroom perhaps and not for serious pole moves, the best rated good value pole out there that I can find is…
- Height adjustable: 7’ft 2″ inches to 8’ft 6″ inches.
- No ceiling adapter required
- Safe to use – This pole has locking components, so it does not unwind when you dance.
- This dance pole is NOT intended for spinning moves. It can be screwed on the ceiling (on ceiling Stud) for more sturdy support.
- Included DVD for installation.
- Max load weight: 175Lbs/79 kg
This 2xhome New Pro pole is a very cheap option but does come with quite a lot of favourable reviews and seems decent enough for very basic pole.
Pros: Claims to be installable in 5 mins and is apparently easy to take down. Different colours to choose from. Comes with carry bag. Suitable for people wanting to use it for exercise.
Cons: Not a spinning pole dancing pole – it doesn’t have a spinning option (although they do have a spinning pole as well). Only takes a light weight load. Plastic so not suitable for professional use.
