    I use this for film production, documentary production and commercial shoots and find that it performs perfectly. It's especially handy given that when I'm traveling for interviews or documentary work in general. I can strap it right to the outside of my carry-on and know it's going to make it to my destination. --Love this piece of gear.

    Not a good purchase

    I bought this boompole and I do regret because it's hard to open it or close.

    You will waste time trying to set up the size.

        Comments about K-Tek KE-79 Traveler Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole (Uncabled):

        This boom will be a useful one for travel. Had to make a trip to the ocean to gather sounds for a project. A typical boom wouln't pack down into a carry on bag. This one will. It was nice to see they put a cap in the bottom that can be removed. I threaded my own mic. cables (stereo) through the tube and let them hang out the bottom. Just pull on them to shorten the boom when finished. Don't need any connectors on the boom itself. Super slick and simple!

          After testing a few different ones I settled for the KE-79.
          It is a very compact and light it fits in my bagpack! I have been using it mostly for recording sounds, and I did try it to shoot with a GoPro camera... incredible!!!

            It's a great short boompole for field recording and easy to carry in a baggage. But just a bit heavy for booming.

                Very compact.Shorter than most monopods. Sturdy. Be careful of the weight when fully extended!! I placed the RODE Blimp system at the end and fully extended the pole, and it became somewhat heavy to handle; but considering the price to value ratio....great deal from our friends at B&H

                          I shoot corporate videos, and I have a pretty complete sound kit. This is the boompole I take when I'm traveling or going solo. I don't know why I'd need anything more. My sound guy also uses it for short takes handheld, but I don't think you'd want to use it for anything really involved.

                          The very best thing about it is it's size. Easy to travel with. I guess that's why it's called a "traveler", huh?

                            I use this pole for my professional shotgun microphone in movies, weddings, and documentaries.
                            It is very light weight. It gets really small when folded. I just don't like the fact that it scratches easily, other than that, it is perfect.
