    Do you purchase the xpole 45 mm or 50 mm? I am 41 years old, 20 lbs over weight, 5’6" with medium hands I guess.. LOL, I want to try this and love it. Just really dont want to order a 50 mm and feel frustrated trying to enjoy myself from what I have read. Then again wouldnt want to find out I am a natural either .. LMAO and learned on a 45 mm and want to venture out into classes. Really gorgeous ladies, I am thinking I am not going anywhere with this, Just going to set it up ( definitely going to purchase attachements once I figure out what I need) in different areas of my home. Put on DVD’s and exercise.. this is my goal.. that Pole dancing will help me shed my 20 lbs. Enjoy it.. hoping to love it and become addicted to it, and also give dh a little thrill every now and then too!! wink wink.. But what would you all advise me to do!!! Do I get the 50 mm… or get the 45 mm.. going with TG also and need to be able to move it around from little less then 8 foot ceiling hts to 12 foot ceiling hts.. LOL I have a 24 foot ceiling ht in the family room.. Do they make those?? eheheheheh but seriously ladies all torn up what I should purchase!! so I can stick with it!!!!

    First…20 pounds is not that much overweight.

    I have women over 200 pounds pole dancing and several in the 175-200 range who are strong and invert and lift.

    The main thing, especially if you don’t have really slim legs is that climing and inverted poses (when you are ready for them) using leg holds will be more difficult on the 45mm. If you intend to only spin and do floor work/transitions then the 45mm might be fine but you will have a more difficult time with if for the more advanced moves.
