Pros and Cons of the Xperience dance pole
For its price of less than $90, it’s a great buy for beginners on a tight budget. Users get to enjoy both spinning and static modes in one dance pole.
The 2-piece, 45mm exercise pole fits common ceiling heights. The pole kit also includes a set of extension poles to allow users to adjust the pole’s height to fit it in their selected area.
An unknown brand without proven reputation in providing safe and high-quality products is the main disadvantage the pole has to overcome. Some may say it’d be better to just save your money for an XPole or Lil Mynx stripper pole.
Some consumers have reported on the instability and unreliability of the pole’s support structure. The bottom mount is quite small and a wedge may be needed to improve the pole’s stability. Using its spin mode gives a feeling that the pole may come loose anytime while in use.
