Pole Danzer Poles

Hey guys!
Has anyone had any experience with a stainless Steel pole from [www.poledanzer.com"] onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ?
The bar where I first started doing exhibitions -Fatboys, wants to get one, and his floor to ceiling height is 15-16'. I don't believe we can go that high with an X pole and don't know of any other place off hand that does. It says the weight can go up to 375lbs and 3 people. Knowing this bar, that could be important.
I've talked to him about a stage pole in the past, but he really wants a permenant floor to ceiling.
Any input is greatly appreciated!

i was asking around in the forums about poles, and user Empyrean mentioned them as a good pole..... i think the threads are somewhere in the pole forums.... i remember going to the site. as poles go, they are a bit more expensive than others....

Hi Kitty. I've used brass Poledanzer poles and LOVE them. The ones in the studio are removable so they came with a really inconvenient base (which eventually got trimmed down). My teacher loves the spinning mechanism on them but I don't have 1st-hand experience as I never, ever dance on spin. They're really friendly and responsive, and the pole just feels so...solid...in your hand. However, these comments are all directed towards the brass pole, rather than stainless. In my personal opinion, stainless is my least favorite type of pole so I avoid it whenever possible. I do recall my boss being a bit taken aback by the price of 3 brass poles, but she definitely made a sound investment. I hope this helps a little. Good luck!

Hi...I have 3 stainless Poledanzer poles in our satellite studio and I'm very happy with them. We recently purchased a stainless pole as a gift for the Hedonism 3 resort in Jamaica as well.

First, Robert and Debbie are great to work with. Customer service is top notch. Robert makes the poles himself, which is why the cost is higher...he isn't dealing with mass production through a factory which helps to keep the cost down.

But the quality is excellent. He will work with you for any special circumstances as well and knows a lot about contruction if you have a special problem with installation (as we did in the commercial building we rent in for our satellite studio)

It's been years since I danced on a LM stainless pole but it was very slippery and I've heard that many people compare stainless poles made by different companies and say some are great and others horrible so I don't know if there is truly a difference in one company's stainless and another...though the stainless pole I've used at a local club was terrible compared to our Poldanzer poles.

However I usually work with Chrome, which is often considered a better grip than stainless and yet I have NO problems switching between chrome Xpoles and stainless Poledanzer poles.

Also, he will install a steel liner for higher poles in order to add extra reinforcement to the pole and when they do this, it is the stongest most solid pole you will experience.

I have one piece brass spinners with the lock out option in my studio and love them. Only thing I would put in a "don't like" is the base. The are raised a bit more then I would like but not enough to say I don't like the poles. Their portables are different then the perm mount ones though.

I have been a Pole Danzer supporter for MANY years. It's the only permanent pole I recommend. Robert is an artisan and is excellent at his craft. Buy with confidence.

2 years ago i equipped my studio with permanent brass poledanzers.  robert was amazing, and his poles are extremely solid and well made.  since then, i have recently installed another pole from a different manufacturer, and though it's a nice pole, you can definitely tell the difference.  robert's spinny poles also spin like no others -- the bearings are incredibly smooth (and light-speed fast!).

Since my last post about Pole Danzers a few years ago (!!!), I have opened my own studio in Boulder, CO. At first I had tension mounted poles, but due to the height of my ceiling, they did not work properly. So now I have 8 lovely stainless steel permanent Pole Danzers. I was immediately impressed with the grip of the stainless. It is UNLIKE other stainless steel poles from other manufacturers. It is much more like chrome and in some circumstances, even grippier. I can switch fairly comfortably from my Pole Danzer to my Xstage. However, it did take me a little while to get used to the tiny bit of spin (maybe 10mm?) because of the space allowed for the lockout pin. I love my Pole Danzers and hope to get a few 45s now! I highly recommend them for permanent poles.

we put a metal washer under the pin to raise it up so they don't have that tish of spin holds it up and tighter.

The portable one is height adjustable. I think it extends up to two feet.

Katana: Thank you!

The permanent one-piece poles are height specific so they're cut to your ceiling.
