    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:

      I have no experience with boom poles, so when I got this, I really had no idea what to expect. So when I did get it, I was enamored with the construction and connections. Simple, lightweight and feels very durable. I'm totally excited to work with it. The case it came with was really nice. A solid, compact neoprene style cased with pocket inside to store an item (I store my long XLR cable there).

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

          It's lightweight and a decent price. However, the knobs to tighten the extensions can be difficult at times. They loosen easily, you need a wrench if you tighten them too much and if you turn them the wrong way things can get a little clumsy. Also, next time I'm going to look for one with more of a hand grip at the bottom. I don't use a boom pole for every shoot so it's not a huge problem.

              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!

                                        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.
