    Which size pole do you recommend? a 45mm or 50mm? How much of a difference does it make in your dancing?

    50 is the standard. I’ve heard 45 is good for smaller hands but makes holding on with legs more difficult.

    i would recommend a 50mm only because it’s easier to go from a 50mm to a 45mm instead of the other way around, at least that’s what i’ve heard. hope this helps! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

    I’m a beginner and I have a 50mm. It’s all I know for now so it works fine for me LOL. and from what I hear if I ever come across a 45mm I won’t have much trouble adjusting, opposed to the other way around https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

    50 mm is the standard size that you will find in clubs and most studios (at least in the US). If you are planning on taking classes or working at a club, I would stick with the 50 mm. If you will only be doing this at home..then go with the 45mm if you have smaller hands. It will be much easier to go from a 50 mm to 45 mm pole than it will to go from 45 to 50. I have heard good things about the 45mm…but personally I love the 50! There are many people who have tiny hands that do just fine on the 50mm. I think it really all boils down to preference! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

    I’m a beginner and I have a 50mm… From what I understand you only want the smaller diameter pole if you have really small hands.

    Hi, I’m a beginner, and I have a 45… It was recommended because I’m small, and have small hands. I’ve learned in a 50, but I prefer a 45.

    i hear that titanium is because it is grippier? https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_scratch.gif Im not quite sure. But i think its compared to brass? https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_scratch.gif

    I have a titanium pole and I don’t really notice much difference between my previous chrome xpole and the new titanium one. I do find having the smaller demension though made a big difference for me when doing ariel inverts.

    oh, okay… In that case it would be better to get one in titanium then https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif – i’m still saving up for one, because I don’t wanna get one of those cheap ones which brakes ceilings and floors and fall down when used https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_scratch.gif

    I’m a beginner and got a 50mm titanium one. I like it! the pole its self looks small in my mind. the 45 looks like i can brake it.. but thats just me. i exercise my wrists and forearms for better strength. i got a gold one cuz i could not keep myself up on a chrome. I have used 45mm pole and i swing better, but i cant climb it! ( i have big thighs)
    i dont know i like my 50mm you just get used to the feel, most of it i imagine comes from practice and body strength.

    I know of others who find that the titanium really wasn’t much different than the chrome. I like chrome for beginners because its not as slippery as new stainless steel and not so grippy that dancing on a pole that isn’t your becomes a problem. I have a 45 and 50 both are chrome and I love my 45, but make sure to use my 50mm often or my grip suffers. Gripping a 45 is easier. If you have wrist, hand or shoulder problems and only want to pole at home go with the 45mm.

    Roxy is right on here…50 mm is the standard size that you will find in clubs and most studios (at least in the US). If you are planning on taking classes or working at a club, I would stick with the 50 mm. If you will only be doing this at home..then go with the 45mm if you have smaller hands.

    Hi,

    I’m considering a 45mm pole, however I’m wondering, what’s the difference between:
    1) Chrome
    2) Titanium gold
    3) Titanium silver
    and which one suits best for a beginner?

    Thanks
