    So as my pole funds start to add up, i’m doing more in depth research on the actual purchase of the pole!! so excited i’ve been planning this purchase for almost a year now! but never really got into the 100% decision. i’ve recently ran into some problems. only offers the original x poles… not the xpert x pole bottom loading one eveyone is raving about. I don’t wanna drop the big $$ on a pole and regret my choice, so i’m wondering.. other Canadians eh, whats a good way to get a hold of the xpert xpole? I looked on here but it says no shipping to canada:( boo!!!
    ps. also wondering about finish.. chrome is a bit cheaper. but tg i think would look better and is grippe er? or so i hear lol
    thanks for all the advice ladies im young and new i know all the questions can be annoying sometimes!!

    I was very afraid before I put my money down for a pole and that I would make the wrong choice and I spent a lot of time researching my options. I live in Toronto and I bought my X-pole from Studio Veena before there were all the options that there are now. I bought a 50 mm Chrome X-pole. It cost just under $400 Canadian and I got it the next day!!!!!!!!! It was perfect! With the help of my husband we put it up and I loved it!! I toyed with getting the gold one, or the 45 mm one but I wanted to be able to pole on anything so that is why i ended up getting the 50 mm. Also I heard that the gold ones can chip, yuk. Anyway,

    I highly recommend buying on from Studio Veena as you can tell it is a reliable source since she has hundreds of members who are addicted to this site. And people like me who has bought a pole from here and had a great transaction with Studio Veena

    Good Luck!! If you buy an X-pole you will love it!!

    yes I want to order the x pole x pert .. a winnipeg dealer apparently is telling me she has a old version 50mm TG available now at 550 .. or I could wait a week when I order an new "xpert" pole for 575 dollars.. now thats everything including shipping taxes blah blah… I donno it just seems a bit more expensive? .. i tried on studio veena but once I get to the checkout it says SORRY WE DO NOT SHIP TO CANADA.. ugh boo cause it is cheaper on here but I guess cause that could be in US dollars. … so did this website used to ship to Canada then before the new x poles?… Should i just pay the 575 flat out for a x pert x pole ? it would save me all the hassle of figuring out shipping and such, just gotta save a bit more cash!! chrome or tg now … hummm

    We CAN sell you X poles here if you in Canada…its just a pain right now…all they have is the old style pole. They are not selling the new ones yet. Once they start stocking the new bottom loading poles we will be able to sell to Canada no prob!! Until then it can be done but its a hassle and it wont be the new style.

    As Veena said the Xpert is not "available" in Canada through the manufacturor. Xpole only stocks the original Xpoles in the Canadian warehouse…so those of us who sell XP can currently only sell the original in Canada.

    The reason it is more costly is likely because the only way to sell the Xpert in Canada is to buy one in the US, then pay shipping to get it to Canada. In my case for example, I would have to have it shipped to ME (minimum $30 USD to my location) then ship on to you in Canada. After customs and shipping cost gets added that raises the price again.

    Additionally, for most of us, we will not get the savings that big companies like XP gets when they have large business accounts with UPS or FEDEX delivery companies. So if shipping and other costs in Canada usually costs $85 for XP to ship, then its even more if someone is shipping to the girl in Winipeg who does not have a bulk discount.

    So, she MIGHT be marking it up as she is the only (or one of the few) to get the XPert to Canada, but very likely it is costing her more to do it as well.

    yeah thats what I started thinking as well, so I understand where the price is coming from. So now I’m definitely gonna get it. It’s not really a shock to me now to think about it, ordering anything is a pain to get to Canada if your not ordering something that has a Canadian dealer. I think it will be worth the price cause I really want the xpert x pole not the original that is only available here. Not that there is anything wrong with old one If I’m spending all that cash to get a pole in canada I want to try the newest version. :d wish me luck!! getting very excited!!
