        Comments about Gitzo GB0530 - Three-Section Carbon Fiber Boompole:

        First impression - light, super light! Gitzo 6x carbon fiber means strong and light weight.

        Quarter turn of the G-lock is all it takes to adjust the length and to lock in the adjustment. Easy to work and quick because of the anti leg lock feature.

        Can't say much about the 5yr guarantee, own several other Gitzo products and have never had any troubles!

          The GB0530 boompole is very useful because it narrows the distance between you and the person/object you are working with. Light, not costy.

          Comments about Gitzo GB0530 - Three-Section Carbon Fiber Boompole:

          The carbon fiber tubes make for a lightweight fishpole for extending a mike. But the tubes also conduct a fair amount of handling noise to the microphone, more than my older (and heavier) Gitzo aluminum fishpoles. The reversible thread at the tip makes for wider compatibility with mike and camera holders.

              Strong, light & basic. Everything one needs in a boom pole. While it would be nice to have an internal cord... is it really worth a couple hundred bucks to put some gaffer tape on the pole?

                  Comments about Gitzo GB0530 - Three-Section Carbon Fiber Boompole:

                  This was recommended to me by several boom operators and I certainly agree with what they had to say.

                  It's very lightweight and easy to hold for long durations which makes it truly invaluable. The G-Lock system is excellent for locking down a certain height and I don't think I could have made a better purchase for the type of work I do.
