The 16' CFP-516R Carbon Fiber Telescoping Boom Pole with Internal Cable & Side Exit XLR Base from Auray is a lightweight and durable boom pole that is loaded with features like anti-tangle integrated cable with triple strain relief system, anti-twist design, Neutrik connectors, and easy drop-through cable insertion to keep your sessions trouble and maintenance-free. It allows you to place a microphone close to the subject while remaining at a distance or out of frame, whether recording a narrative film, documentary, or a run-and-gun ENG (Electronic News Gathering) production.
The boom poles feature reinforced carbon fiber composite tubes that offer an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. They are lightweight to reduce handling fatigue during lengthy sessions, and are designed to withstand the rigors of field use. They are easy to handle, even in extreme temperatures, and are built with ergonomic twist-locks and anti-twist alignment. This prevents the tubes from rotating independently of each other and more comfortable to grip.
Furthermore, the arrowhead-tip design reduces the weight at the top of the pole, and makes for easy drop-through cable insertion when it comes time to replace your cable. Featuring a standard 3/8"-16 threaded mount, the boom pole fits most shotgun microphone shockmounts. Additionally, carbon fiber extension tubes, and the cable replacement kit with bottom or side exit attachments, are optional accessories (sold separately).
