Home > Dance Pole Reviews
I created this section to help you sort out how to buy a dance pole that's best for you. And, you can rest assured I'm only interested in giving you honest, objective recommendations for high quality products.
As of this writing, there are a handful of major manufacturers worldwide, plus several small and/or local outfits, along with the usual assortment of cheap knockoffs and offshore imitations.
With this in mind, I want to stress that although I review all products fairly, I only recommend companies that I truly feel offer a quality product at a fair price, and that back up their products with excellent customer service.
Three of the major brands that I've reviewed so far have earned a "thumbs up." But rather than just give you a list of which poles I recommend, I've gone one step further.
I've tested each pole myself, from unpacking and installing to spins and inversions. And I've written up my findings in detail, complete with plenty of photos and commentary.

The MiPole is a relative newcomer, and is competing heavily on price. Nonetheless, I found it to be a sturdy, quality product backed by excellent customer service. Worth checking out especially if you're on a tight budget.
XPole scores very highly in my review. Especially if you're looking for a platform pole or a portable model with lots of options, you might want to check out what XPole has to offer.
Lil Mynx is my overall top pick, for a number of reasons. From the wide variety of models available, to quick shipping times, and outstanding customer service, Lil Mynx rocks it.

Unfortunately, Platinum Stages didn't make my recommended list for a variety of reasons. Click the link above if you'd like to find out why.
The Peekaboo Pole and Electra Pole are two others I don't recommend for serious students. These are not professional quality, and are not intended to handle weight bearing moves such as spins, climbs and inversions.
