        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 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.

                      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.

                        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.
