K-Tek KE-69CC Reviews
Decent for the price
I know it lists the length on the description so this is mostly my fault - but it's too short for me. I wish I had a few extra feet on the max extension length. I didn't realize how short the extension actually was until it was in my hand. You have to be pretty close to the subject to get audio. It's very light and works well otherwise. I wise man told me before I purchased this that it's better to have the XLR connection come out on the side at the bottom and not the very bottom - he was right. I didn't listen.
worth the price
good material and good value for money though far from perfect. the connectors on the extensions get loose very easily, but for the price can't get too demanding!
Only used it on a couple of shoots, but found it to be a great and necessary addition to my gear.
Love the internal wire
I had in my cart a boom pole that did not have the internal wire. On a suggestion from a friend I changed that order to this boom pole. I am so glad that I did. It is very nice not to have to deal with a long cord when using this boom pole. Everything is nice and neat and out of the way.
Used for high school movie making class. Only issues are: Sometimes the wire seems to get stuck a little inside when pole is extending or colapsing. Some of our XLR cables have trouble plugging into the end. The new ones we bought with it had no trouble though.
Strong, durable, easy to adjust and smartly designed. No complaints since it does exactley what it should do.
Beat this pole up for 10+ years and it finally broke. Did not hesitate to replace it with a new one. Would buy again.
so so but good for value
Build quality: overall solid. extentions & their connections: meh. XLRs: as they're supposed to be. plugs: fine! For its price it's a great entry-level pole.
