You may well be thinking that beyond pinks poles are the x-poles and they cost a little but more – so the tempation is there to see if you could save a bit of money on this one!
The first place that you are likely to start is going to be ebay the one stop shop for everything second-hand or cheap… well here are some questions to ask before you search for a second hand pole on ebay
- How Old is the pole – because just like everything else, an x-pole can fade with use – they are made to last – but not to last forever!
- Does the x-pole have the new x-joints? If it doesn’t then you are probably best to avoid – for one thing it could be over 5 years old, and these tended to jam which was not a problem if they were separated correct – but if they were forced apart then this would tend to make them jam even more easily in the future – this is not something that would be able to see with the naked eye – but once yo have used it and found it stocks – there is nothing much you can do about it!
- what is the surface like? If the surface was ever cleaned with an abrasive cleaner then the damage will be permanent – one way that this can be hidden with a damaged pole would be to put polish over the damage – be warned this will only make it worse.
So, there you have it – brown and pink loves the pink pole – but will also use accept that other pole dancing poles are available and the x-pole may well be the best of those – and ebay might well be the place where you’d go in order to find it!
