The X-Pert is the X-Pole with new and improved features!! The X-PERT is the world's first 'bottom loading', static and spinning dance pole. Designed with Professional Dancers and Pole Tricks in mind the X-PERT incorporates all the features required to meet the demands of the world's best. Bottom loading, no longer is a ladder needed for installation, the X-PERT uses X-Pole's unique adjuster system to expand and fully lock the pole in position, while the dancer stays firmly on the ground. No locking nut to come undone. The X-PERT also incorporates a special adjuster cover, which when in place creates a totally smooth pole from top to bottom. No sharp pole edge or screw adjuster to scrape arms and legs, no cover edges to hit, just smooth pole all the way. It even features a Micro Base for minimum contact. IMPORTANT NOTICE WHEN PURCHASING: If you think you are missing parts please contact the seller first before returning to Amazon. X-pole has combined parts in the packaging for easier installation and shipping. This is NOT reflected on the parts list and DVD. Many of these concerns can be answered quickly by the seller.

However, I encountered a problem (that was quickly fixed). In my apartment, I have a 9' ft ceiling. THIS POLE IS MADE FOR UP TO 9'. That means a MAX of 9 ft. If you install it on carpet, you must add between a 1/2" to 2" additional (because of how the carpet sinks down due to the softness). I had to order the 500mm pole extension. I overnighted it and it came in the very next day. Problem fixed. No hassle. However, thank goodness I have a couple of GUY friends that live close by to borrow some of their tools.
What you [may] need:
1. A STUD FINDER (to find the wooden beam in your ceiling. You do NOT want to install this with the pressure and tension going against pure sheet rock!!! It will definitely damage your ceiling. The instructions say you can use your knuckles to tap against the ceiling and find it, but since I live in an apartment, I wouldn't take a chance. Actually, if I had a house, I definitely wouldn't take a chance.
2. A LEVEL -The pole will be crooked. You need the level to straighten it out and adjust it accordingly. Yes it may seem like common sense that the pole will be straight from ceiling to floor but it can be and will be crooked!!
3. A TAPE MEASURE. Measure your ceiling. (Duh).
That's all. Love my pole! LOVE!! It's great.
I have installed the X-pole in two different places with two different ceiling heights (9 foot using the extension, and 8 feet without). I've used it on wood floors and carpet with no problems. The ceiling dome doesn't leave a mark when you remove it and the floor base is very secure and has polymer gasket-like material to protect floors from damage. I found the expansion joints had excellent, very precise tolerances and fit very securely together. The chrome finish has held up very well and I have noticed no degradation or corrosion. Mine is ever so slightly bowed when fully installed (I think it's the top long piece), but it's pretty subtle and you can only tell in spinning mode and it hasn't seemed to interfere with anything or have any negative effects. I followed all instructions carefully and painstakingly identified the ceiling joists as directed. You really must follow the directions (which are fairly well written) or you're gonna screw something up. The hardest part is finding the ceiling joists. I really wouldn't recommend the tapping method - you should really use a studfinder because this thing does put a fair amount of stress on the ceiling to be secured properly.
By the way, I'm NOT a professional dancer, I just dance at home for fun (it is a WORKOUT!!), and I'm also an engineer so I have a pretty good gauge on quality of metal parts and I think this is a well-designed piece of hardware. I love playing on it and my friends are always tittilated when they get to come over for a dance party. Just remember to tell them to take off their watches and rings and other things that can scratch... I'm very happy with this pole and it's great to have the extension so I can install in places with higher ceilings.
