SO YOU WANT TO BUY A POLE?
When you are first buying a pole it can be a little confusing! So many options and not knowing which ones are best for you can be frustrating! I learned through trial and error, and after the years found my preferences, as you will too. The information below is to help you educate yourself before you buy.
I have been purchasing poles for my home and studio for the last 8 years and always recommend X-Pole first to students purchasing for their homes, as they are my personal favorite company. The design and quality is top shelf. However, if you are needing studio grade poles, the Platinum Stage studio poles have been my choice due to our specific studio needs.
If you are an addict, the first step is admitting you have a problem! ;) Some tips can help you ween yourself of the grip aid or help you not become addicted to it in the first place!
1. Make a plan to use less grip aid next time your on the pole or in class. Try only applying half of what you usually do and figure out how to work around the new feeling of not feeling as sticky.
