The QXS 550 Quickpole Light Boompole from Ambient Recording is a balanced boompole designed for engineering and video professionals. Built with five segments, the pole effectively delivers a better collapsed-to-extended ratio, enabling easy transportation while providing long lengths when needed. The mechanical parts are machined out of aircraft aluminum, while the 3/8” thread is made out of solid stainless steel to survive a high number of microphone changes.
The boompole features a straight cable flow-through system with a sideways outlet that prevents cable entanglement. With an effective shielding and polyurethane insulation, this durable cabling provides high endurance while maintaining flexibility, even in temperatures as low as -40°F.
