      In would actually give this product 5 stars except that the last pole section stretches on the internal XLR cable, so I wouldn't remcommend extending the pole past that point. I haven't used it yet on a set, but I can say that it does what I bought it for: It's LONG. Really long. It's lightweight, but not cheaply made. It is sturdy machined and acidified aluminum and I am quite happy with it. (So long as it works!)

      Not bad, not great. Good deal for the price, but the cable rattles around in it too much for my liking. Too much handling noise. Worth it to pay the premium for a carbon fiber pole if you can afford it.

      Comments about K-Tek KE-110CCR Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole with Internal Coiled XLR Cable:

      I'm a boom operator and had been meaning to upgrade, and this pole seals the deal. With an internal coiled cable, there are never any snags when raising or lowering the pole. The internal cable does produce some handling noise, but if you're not herky jerky with it, it'll never become a problem. Also, the XLR output on the side of the pole is a really nice touch. I can unplug and detach from the pole with ease and I can lean it standing up without worry of the cable being pressed down upon. It's a bit pricey for "just a pole", but let me assure you, it is NOT "just a pole". Outstanding design! And hopefully I'll never have to buy another one!

          - Locking the sections is difficult

          Thought I could save some $$ with this one but you get what you pay for. I returned this item and bought the carbon fiber version.

            Comments about K-Tek KE-110CCR Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole with Internal Coiled XLR Cable:

            Well constructed, light weight. I like the way the internally coiled cable gives tension so that it collapses easily.

            The only problem I can see, is that where the internal cable exits to the exterior, there is a sharp edge. Out of the box, the cable jacketing was already part way cut through. I re-seated the cable so that it wasn't rubbing on the same spot, but I can see how after a few years of use the pole could cut open the XLR cable - rendering the features of the internal cable useless. And the pole is sealed, so good luck installing a new cable. May take a grinder or dremmel to it, bet that voids the warranty...

                When I was seeking advice on what to buy, every sound person I spoke to recommended a K-Tek Boompole. I have used them in the past and was pleased to find that they are an industry standard. The XLR out on the side allows me to rest the end of the pole on my foot or the floor without fear of damaging the connector.

                  I really like the wired design: it's light and sturdy, although I wish it had some kind of foam on the grip to keep hands warmer in cold weather. Also, the locking system, while similar to other booms I've used, just takes too many turns to tighten, making it difficult to tell which telescoping section needs to be tightened. Otherwise, a great value!

                    Does what it's suppose to do. Only thing was that the knobs that tighten the boom poles is a little rough due to the entire thing being made out of aluminum but it's kind of the nature of the beast. I like it and would recommend it to someone else.

                      This product does it's job well! Wired boom poles are great! It's so much easier to adjust when one doesn't have to worry about a mic cable wrapped around it.

                      This is the first boom pole I've owned and so far I'm very pleased!

                            This is an exceptional boompole for the price! It is very lightweight and sturdy and the internal cabling is a must for me. It extends to a great length of 9'2" even though I would prefer a longer length. Also the right angle connector on the bottom is fantastic for resting between takes without hurting the xlr connector! My only compliant would be that the internal cabling makes some noise while moving the pole back and forth when fully or almost fully extended. Also the last section is very "springy" when extended and has a tendency to fly back when releasing the section lock ring. I would just say be careful when extending and releasing the last section of the pole. Besides that this is a very good overall entry level boompole with great features and a good length.

                              I use this product in professional "on-location" audio recording for film / video. The Boom pole is well built, and supports my Sennheiser 815 long shotgun mic without slippage or wire noise. The design is excellent with the side out XLR connection.

                                    These guys should know where there products are going and should ship with the adapter for U.S. mic clips and baskets.Luckily I had a drum clip that I could take an adapter from.

                                      I use this for mostly short film work. The pole is light and the internal coil is very convenient. The ability to get the mic right next to your subject truly elevates your sound to the professional realm.

                                        I purchased this boompole for on-location sound recording during video productions. Originally, I was concerned about its weight but it hasn't been an issue. The coiled cable has not caused any problems lengthening or retracting the segments. This product is easy to use and seems to be durable.

                                          In would actually give this product 5 stars except that the last pole section stretches on the internal XLR cable, so I wouldn't remcommend extending the pole past that point. I haven't used it yet on a set, but I can say that it does what I bought it for: It's LONG. Really long. It's lightweight, but not cheaply made. It is sturdy machined and acidified aluminum and I am quite happy with it. (So long as it works!)

                                            The pole is solid and handles easily. The tightening selves work pretty well. You can hear the coiled XLR cable inside when you mov the pole. For the money it's not a bad pole.

                                              Excellent audio from this boompole. Make sure you have a 3/8" clamp for the end of the pole.
