Pole dancing grip aids just so happen to be something were experts on (even if we do say so ourselves!)
This is a review of Mighty Grip Powder, which is a very common grip aid, used in pole studios around the world and for amateur and professional pole dancers alike.
But, how do you know if it’s going to work for you?
Let’s find out…
Mighty Grip Powder Review
Depending on where you buy your Mighty Grip powder, you may notice is has different labels. Although the labels are different, it is the same product inside!
You may also see this product in packages for a specific sport, e.g. “Mighty Grip for tennis” or “Mighty Grip for darts”. It’s still the same product inside! In fact, it can often be less expensive to buy the version without the pole dancing label, always check for the lowest price before buying!
Features Of Mighty Grip Powder

- Great for use in Cold Environments
- Comes in a small 7-gram bottle
How To Use Mighty Grip Powder
Mighty Grip Powder is simple and quick to use, just apply a small amount to your hands, then pat or gently rub your hands together.
The best time to apply Mighty Grip powder is immediately after your warm-up. The warmth from your body activates the powder and provides a layer of tacky grip on your skin.
It contains a thermoplastic ingredient to achieve the ‘tacky’ feeling on your hands, giving you a better grip on the pole.
How Does It Work?
Body heat is key to how Mighty Grip powder works, so it’s important to only apply this product after warming up.
This is also why it’s so effective in colder climates; for example, when pole dancers with not-so-sweaty hands come into contact with the pole, it’s just too slippery without the use of a grip aid.
When you add body heat and a tiny bit of Mighty Grip powder, it’s possible to grip the pole with more friction.
Mighty Grip claim that this powder works well on cold surfaces, and it does! In colder countries, the pole can be absolutely freezing in the winter which is really hard to grip onto (living in a colder country is the only time when slightly sweaty hands is a benefit!) and Mighty Grip seems to provide the right level of grip-comfort in this situation!
However, if you have naturally sweaty hands, then Mighty Grip powder may not work as effectively. If this describes you, use a towel wipe the sweat away from your hands (and the pole!) as often as you need to, then reapply a tiny bit of powder if you can feel yourself losing grip due to sweat.
Pros Of Mighty Grip Powder
- Improves your grip on cold surfaces
- Stays on you, not on the pole
- None of the ingredients are known to cause allergies
- Helps with complex moves by improving grip
- Mighty Grip Powder can handle small amounts of sweat
Cons Of Mighty Grip Powder
- Requires re-application if you have sweaty hands.
- If you are someone who has super sweaty palms when you’re poling, you may find this is not effective for you. Mighty Grip Powders best results come from people with overall dryer skin and less palm perspiration.
- The product itself is not an antiperspirant so will not prevent sweating.
So, Is It Worth Buying?
Ye -. just not for overly sweaty hands.
Mighty Grip Powder sadly is not destined for those with a sweaty disposition, but for those with dry skin and less sweating during work out and routines it is definitely worth picking up a bottle.
The size of the bottle is absolutely tiny, but one small bottle will easily last 2-3 months with standard use as it only needs a small amount each time you use it. You’ll barely even notice that it’s in your gym bag as it’s that small.
If you need to frequently re-apply the product, it will obviously not last as long.
