    KE-89CC Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole with Internal XLR Cable is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 127.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rugged, well built, and easy to use. This boom is fantastic for indoor and small productions. Its 7-foot length is a great compromise between reach and weight. It's lightweight and easy to handle. The joints move easily and lock securely, though the coiled cable does tend to pull the telescoping joints in when it's nearly fully extended. The coiled internal cable is quiet; you really have to jostle the boom hard to get any mechanical noise at all, and by that time you've shaken up the mic, too.We use this pole with an AT-897 short shotgun in a rubber shock mount and have found it extremely effective. Our Sennheiser ENG-type wireless transmitter plugs right into the XLR-M on the end of the pole.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy Boompole? I sent this back because the internal coil rattles when you twist the pole. My NTG-3 picks up the noise easily.... A good boom operator must shift the pole back and forth between two actors to catch the sweet spot for the highest quality sound. If you want to hold the pole completely steady and just hang it over the scene, I suppose that the rattling wouldn't be too much of a problem, but I must warn, if you so much as shift your weight, you will get the noise, and it may very well ruin the take. This is utterly inexcusable in a boompole.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit difficult to adjust The construction is strong, I use this in a boom pole holder on a c-stand so the added weight vs its far more expensive counter part is fine for me. The grips to adjust its length are fairly harsh on the hands and if you loosen them to much you will be turning and turning and turning to tighten them. Even when they are tight the pole still seams a little loose. All in all I think this one aspect could be improved. I did not notice any of the coiled cable noise often associated with these products. Though like i said I have mine mounted in a boom pole holder so I cannot attest to it when being hand held.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without it. This boompole is great for getting up close and personal audio while filming without dropping too much cash. Very lightweight, which matters a lot when having to hold it over a shot. The integrated cord makes it very easy to use. The only signs that this is a more uh reasonably priced boompole are that the lock rings are a bit confusing to figure out, and sometimes the microphone mount bolt at the end works itself loose resulting in embarrasing microphone wilt. All in all, a solid product and I would buy it again for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK value but noisy I bought this on sale, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get this one. It's ok considering the price. But the internal cable makes a significant amount of noise if you don't handle the boom very gentlywhich you should anyway, but still. What's going on is that there is some sort of sprung, internal elastic system that is under tension. When that sprung internal cable management system bounces into the metal walls of the boom, well, you really hear it. Being under tension, it really responds to bumps or other movement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Pole I have no experience with boom poles, so when I got this, I really had no idea what to expect. So when I did get it, I was enamored with the construction and connections. Simple, lightweight and feels very durable. I'm totally excited to work with it. The case it came with was really nice. A solid, compact neoprene style cased with pocket inside to store an item (I store my long XLR cable there).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice price If the pole isn't extended all the way the cable inside rattles. Other than that, great price and light weight.
    Date published: 2011-03-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product This is great for run-and-gun shoots. The toughest part of being a boom operator on amateur shoots is dealing with the cords, and this takes care of that. A short xlr into a small compact sound recorder and you have the ability to record great sound just as one person. The pole is lightweight and there is a little resistance when trying to extend the pole to its maximum length, but other than that this is a great product.
