The 16' CFP-516B Carbon Fiber Telescoping Boom Pole with Internal Cable & Bottom 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 tube design, Neutrik XLR 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 yet durable, 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 for a comfortable grip, and anti-twist tube sections, which prevents the tubes from rotating independently of each other.
The removable arrowhead-tip design reduces the weight at the top of the pole - further reducing fatigue - and allows for easy, solderless cable replacement. Featuring a standard 3/8"-16 threaded mount, the boom pole fits most microphone shock mounts.
Optional accessories include carbon fiber extension tubes, cable replacement kits, bottom and side exit housings, and a balance weight.
