    Comments about A5 5-Section Aluminum Boompole By Rycote:

    I think not good enough for professional use. It feels heavy but not sturdy. The "unique locking-cam" does not allow to tighten the section enough tight and because the pole is missing anti-twist the other sections are turning while locking and unlocking making the whole process fiddly.

          Comments about A5 5-Section Aluminum Boompole By Rycote:

          I was having some problems with my normal boom pole. One, it was too long for an international documentary filming, and this one gets very small so its excellent for that. The other problem I had with my other boom pole was that, the metal rings to tighten or loosen it for extension or retraction, were too tight. It was a real hastle to get it to work properly. You'd tighten it up when it was cool outside at night, then the next day when its warm it would be almost impossible to loosen. Just really annoying to work with day after day while trying to operate as a one man videographer. This pole is just great. Really if you are thinking about buying this and its the right measurement for you, I think you will love it like I do. No problems, all benefits so far.
