    This is a sturdy and solidly built boompole. For $[*], it does what it needs to do. It extends further than expected and still hold fairly strong when fully extended. The grip is one of it's best features. Really comfortable.My only gripe is that it didn't fit my shock mount. I fixed that by getting a 3/8" coupler at Lowes and Frankensteining it together. Works perfectly though now.

    At less than seven feet, this boom pole is not useful in every situation, but it does the job in many cases. Keep in mind this pole is NOT made to receive and conceal the mic cable. You'll have to tie or Velcro the cable to the pole to keep it neat and out of frame.

          I ordered the "package" for my Rode mic and the boom pole came with it. I don't have much need for the pole but it is well constructed and would work great if I needed a boom pole. This is the only reason why I didn't give it a 5.

              Light weight and sturdy boom pole for a great low budget price. Only drawback is that I had to make a run to HomeDepot to grab an adapter thread to be able to hook it up to the microphone clip. A 20 minute round trip for a $ attachment. Would have been great if it came with it but not a deal breaker.

              Rode micro boompole

              By Aidin

              from Upstate NY

              Comments about Rode Micro Boompole - 3-Section Boom Pole:

              The rode micro boom pole was one of the best purchases that I have made as in indie filmmaker. It has solid construction and due to it being a retractable and extendable it is perfect for almost all uses in run and gun shooting. The only con that I have found about this product is that sometimes the arms will not lock into place but this is most likely due to user error. Overall this was a good purchase to use with my road video Mic

              Comments about Rode Micro Boompole - 3-Section Boom Pole:

              Great value for money. I use a Rode NTG-1 microphone with this pole and mostly at full extension. That is where I would expect to see flaws in a cheaper pole but this pole performs brilliantly. No more flexing than you would expect and very comfortable handgrip. I see another reviewer mentioned that he could not attach his microphone to the pole but the pole I received had plenty of thread to screw my mic mount to.
              I am very happy with the pole only be prepared to also purchase the boom pole clips as well. The audio cable from the microphone does not run through tbd middle of the pole.

                  Bought for one time use on a doc. It is very easy to adjust. It isn't long enough to be the primary boom in someone's package, but for quick run and gun, it is very easy to handle.

                    I use this product as rookie filmmaker with almost no cash flow. The nice thing about this product is that its pretty durable and works how its supposed to. It's also a pretty good price, so you get a better cash value than some cheaper products. Whats not so good however is that for me area to hold feels a little awkward compared to more expensive brands that I've borrowed.

                    Good but flimsy

                    Comments about Rode Micro Boompole - 3-Section Boom Pole:

                    I bought this to replace my DIY pole, and I can say it outperforms it by miles. But there are two problems with it. the first is that when fully extended it becomes a little flimsy. And the second is that the sections are small so that to use the foam grip you must keep your hands very close together, which can be awkward at times. But for the money this a good choice. It breaks down to be small enough to fit almost anywhere. It a perfect addition to the rode videomic.

                    If the Rode label wasn't on there it would be cheaper. But the quality of the metal, foam, and overall construction is great. The paint scratches easily but doesn't peel off so it doesn't matter too much.

                        The pole is fine except for some unexpected design flaws. Its a boom pole, which is suppose to be compatible with Rode NTG2, but its not! You have to buy a special mic clip, since it does not work with the standard mic clip that comes with the NTG2. Thought to warn others as all the advertising and others reviews this extra pain was not mentioned. And also it does not have cable clips, so you'll want to add lib, grippers tape I think is one option. Its light weight and good for me as I have a female boom pole operator who likes its weight & size.

                        I use the boom pole to help record audio for inexpensive web commercials and house videos. It does what it says. It is lightweight, inexpensive, extendable and easy to use. It is great to get you by but as soon as I can afford it I will upgrade. You have to make sure your cord is secure around your pole or it will hit against the pole and you will record the noise. The head is fixed. You can not adjust the direction it is pointing except by moving the pole.

                            This boompole is skinny, lightweight, and quick to setup. It comes with a nice foam grip for easy (and shock-free) handling, and can extent to a surprisingly long length. I was reluctant to buy a boompole that wasn't quite as long as some of the others, but I have been happily surprised by the versatility of this one. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because it has no internal wiring for an XLR cable.

                              Comments about Rode Micro Boompole - 3-Section Boom Pole:

                              I do a lot of interviews and I don't live to use lavs, so having a good boom pole is important to secure the shotgun mic. This sturdy pole was just the right size and has enough strength to get the job done right.

                              The only downside was that I needed to get an adapter to attach my stabilizer. Other than that, it was everything I could want.

                                  I got the micro boom pole with the Rode videomic and it attached nice and easy and there is minimal to no noise travel while in use. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
