So, X-STAGE products have undergone a few changes over the
years. Mainly & most obviously: changes to the bearings. This 'tips'
section will only talk about the bearings as we have lots of people ordering
extra insert poles for their stages. We want to make sure you get the most
out of your X-STAGE!
If you use X-STAGE inserts & bases that are from
different editions - you may have issues with bearings getting stuck, so
one of the best things to do is check with us before you order.
If you do want to order online, here are some tips to help you
choose the right insert.
check your original order paperwork - search your emails for X-POLE and you
will find the SKU code on your order notification email. This is simply a product code that will start with an XST, or an NST.
Use this Product code to work out which edition you have.
XST160 - (the bearings on the pole
to the picture above)
- Most of these
stages use XS model extensions with
XJ type x-joints.
- If you have an
older model pole insert that screws together, you should probably look
at upgrading to a newer model. Simply keep your original bearings &
buy a new insert pole. Call us for assistance :)
- If you want to
change the width
of your pole, but you want to keep your base - please call our office
about whether you can swap out the bearings on the insert that you're
purchasing. This will ensure that your new insert is compatible with
your base & won't get stuck!
- Long story
short - if you want to buy a newer insert to use with this type of stage
- just call us first :)
