The KP16CCR 16' KlassicPro Graphite 6-Section Boompole with Internal XLR Coiled Cable, Side Exit from K-Tek features a removable headpiece for cable reconfiguration without soldering. The top attachment is a 3/8" male thread that includes a coiled cable with a KlassicPro right angle connector and a bottom male 3-pin XLR with a side exit. This boompole can be used as a solution for Film, Broadcast TV, Electronic News Gathering (ENG), Electronic Field Productions, (EFP), and other field recording applications.
The KP16CCR boompole measures 46.5" to 16.3' in length. The cable can be removed or installed without soldering and transformed to various configurations including uncabled, coil cabled, straight cabled, or with a transmitter at the top or the bottom (available separately). Gone are the soldered and sealed poles of the past. After removing a standard sized set screw, the headpiece simply threads on and off the tube smoothly. The modular system allows for quick transformations and eliminates the need for a completely new system just for a cabling change.
The cable kits are built with a high-quality coiled cable that features a low-profile, right-angle connector and incorporates thick gauge wiring and aluminum shielding. This makes it stronger and protected from radio frequency (RF) interference. Also, the connector is small, light, serviceable, and made with a Neutrik connector at its base.
The KP16CCR uses a modified collett with a thicker and smoother surface, allowing for more subtle, gradual extension of each section. Replacing the dimples with oval exterior divets and improving the finish means the pole has a better grip and smoother feel when opening and closing each collar. The boompole is hand-burnished to diffuse handling noise.
