        Comments about Gitzo 3560 - Six-Section Carbon Fiber Boompole:

        This is an amazing boom! Light, easy to use and efficient. I had one of these last year that unfortunately was smashed to bits by some hoons, and I went out of my way to buy another model exactly like it. This is a good general purpose boom to have in your collection, especially for ENG work and running and gunning solo work. You simply have to unlock the collars a TINY bit to release them, and you don't have to screw them down insanely tightly to get them to lock back in. It's not as sturdy as the Ambient model poles, but a great cheaper alternative. I love it!

          Comments about Gitzo 3560 - Six-Section Carbon Fiber Boompole:

          This unwired boompole is light weight, extends to a helpful length and the twist locks on the sections work smoothly. And compared to many carbon fiber poles out there it's relatively inexpensive. Not cheap, but relatively speaking it's affordable.

          Comments about Gitzo 3560 - Six-Section Carbon Fiber Boompole:

          Wanted more reach than my Rode 7 footer. Got that with this 12 foot pole. Light weight, good section locks easy to extend and retract. Would be nice if Gitzo included instructions for proper use. There are included things that are not obvious what they are for, poking around web sites figured out little square thing is a pole cleaner, what is screw disk for? Don't know, it got in way of Rycote pistol grip XLR connector so removed it. Reasonable price. Overall very nice.

            Great in the field. Easy screw and unscrew system to make fast moves during a documentary/reality shooting.

            Great size in its collapse mode. Easy to carry, most if you are both mixing and "boomming". I love Gitzo mount system to lock your mic suspension.

            Nice price for its similars.

              This is a great lightweight boom that really allows you to get out over the action and stay there with as little fatigue as possible. It doesn't come with a cable through it but I normally use a wireless rig or just wrap a cable around it.

                I love this Boom, we use it on most of our Outdoor/On Location shoots. Why purchase a shorter boom when you know your going to eventually need a longer one. Of course if your strapped for cash, then sure go with a shorter Gitzo.

                    I love this pole. It is long enough for almost any situation I've been in and light enough not to be a drag on any operator. We moved up from a shorter pole and honestly my advice would be to never spend the money on a shorter one. You will need the length and this is the best bang for the buck.
