    This boompole is great for getting up close and personal audio while filming without dropping too much cash. Very lightweight, which matters a lot when having to hold it over a shot. The integrated cord makes it very easy to use.

    The only signs that this is a more uh reasonably priced boompole are that the lock rings are a bit confusing to figure out, and sometimes the microphone mount bolt at the end works itself loose resulting in embarrasing "microphone wilt". All in all, a solid product and I would buy it again for the price.

    I bought the product for a location audio gig I began last week. It has worked fine for my purpose, but there are minor things that bother me. For example, the internal coil often rattles against the insides of the pole, causing a slight rattling noise in the mic. Also, it seems difficult to pull slack out of the mic end to make sure that I have enough to securely plug in my mic,

        Comments about K-Tek KE-89CC Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole with Internal Coiled XLR Cable:

        This boom is fantastic for indoor and small productions. Its 7-foot length is a great compromise between reach and weight. It's lightweight and easy to handle. The joints move easily and lock securely, though the coiled cable does tend to pull the telescoping joints in when it's nearly fully extended. The coiled internal cable is quiet; you really have to jostle the boom hard to get any mechanical noise at all, and by that time you've shaken up the mic, too.We use this pole with an AT-897 short shotgun in a rubber shock mount and have found it extremely effective. Our Sennheiser ENG-type wireless transmitter plugs right into the XLR-M on the end of the pole.

          Works just like a boompole should. Just be careful not to drop the pole on the xlr connector.

                This is very helpful. The coiled internal cable is awesome and makes it a lot easier to use. Unfortunately, it has a hard time staying in place when you extend it. it will twist and turn around if you do not tighten it down as hard as possible. Its a real pain but it is still better then nothing in the end. Could also just be the one i got.

                  This unit is excellent value for money. Highest quality XLR connectors come on it stock and cable can be easily changed out if ever necessary. Lightweight and is easy on my sound guy compared to our older unit. My only (and this is SUPER MINOR) is the low shielding cable, this does not effect the quality or durability at all so far, but I personally just prefer a slightly beefier shielded cable, again only personal preference.Excellent buy!

                            Having the built-in XLR was my main draw to this pole and so far it has been excellent. The internal coil doesn't kink or cause issues adjusting pole lengths. So far great!

                                  Comments about K-Tek KE-89CC Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole with Internal Coiled XLR Cable:

                                  We purchased this Boom as part of a sound kit on B&H for a small start up HDSLR Video production company. We attach a NTG-2 with a Deadcat onto a pearstone universal shock mount onto this boom.

                                  PROS:
                                  Good weight, internal cable has helped tremendously with cable management. No noise or handling picked up in mic. Internal cable makes no noise. Feels sturdy.

                                  CONS:
                                  The XLR calbe at the top of the boom can scratch the pole when it swings free, only cosmetic, but still something to think about.
                                  The twisting part that allows you to extend the poles is a little difficult to tighten or untighten at times, this is due to trying to stop one pole form sipping one way, while spinning the other in the opposite direction, I think this is standard, just never used it before.

                                  All in all, I would definitely recommend this

                                      I have used this so far on a couple of film festival projects and this pole is not only light, but it is also durable and versatile. This is a great pole that brings lightweight and durability together. I am using this with an old audiotechnica shotgun mic and it hasn't failed me for the projects I have done with it so far. And this pole also retracts, which makes it easy to carry and move from location to location with. Great for any type of professional video setting and for and small scale video setting.

                                        This is a nice boom pole for the sound guy who is just starting out or for someone who wants to have their own equipment. Very lightweight and durable. Only complaint is that you really have to crank the rings to get them nice and tight.

                                            This is perfect for what I use it for. The cable inside does rattle when you're moving, but if you are shooting interviews and sticking the boom on a stand, this saves time and looks cleaner than wrapping the XLR cable around the pole. In corporate environments where production windows with executives can be short lived, I value anything that shortens my setup time. Not the farthest reaching boom pole, but you don't need a big reach for sit down interviews.

                                              Love the wired boom poles. This one is sturdy and well made. Would've have liked to have foam cushioning on it though.

                                                I used K-Tec boompoles in film school, so I was already familiar with the brand, but using a brand new one is so nice! I think the only question for me was what size would best fit my needs. Since I don't do much narrative work, I went with something that I thought could be small enough in tight situations and long enough to do better than the camera-mounted mic technique in roomier spaces.
