The K-Tek KE-89CC Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole provides a moderately priced, lightweight boompole solution for ENG, EFP, and other field recording applications. Its sturdy aluminum design is tough enough to endure the rigors of road use, while remaining lightweight and travel-worthy. This pole features an internal coiled cable and an XLR connection at the base of the pole. A total of four aluminum sections telescope between 2' 5" to 7' 6" and will easily store in any standard equipment case. The captive-collet coupling system locks each section in place for even further reliability.

what would be a good pistol grip to use with this boompole and sennheiser mkh416?
Hello, Any pistol grip can be used with the boompole, provided the pistol grip has a 3/8 female thread on the bottom. Suggestion: use a quick-release inbetween the pistol grip and the boompole, that will help you to take it faster on and off the pole. We hope this helps you! If you have any further questions about K-Tek or Stingray products, please feel free to reach out directly as well. Happy booming! Your friendly team @ K-Tek

what c-stand and clamps do I need with the K-Tek KE-89CC?
For the C-stand, you can use any model, just be sure to select one that accommodates the height you require. Any standard C-stand and boompole holder can be used. For a stand that extends 10 feet, you may like the Impact Turtle Base C-Stand - 10.75' - Chrome (B&H# IMLSCT40M). The same stand is available in different heights. For an easy to use boompole holder, consider the Auray Boompole Holder and Grip Head Kit (B&H# GBBPHK) or BoomMate Boompole Holder and Grip Head Kit (B&H# BOBPHK).

The screw at the top of my boom pole has broken off in the shock mount. Is it possible to buy a replacement top screw for this boom pole?
K-Tek does offer replacement parts for their boom poles but B&H does not have the correct part available. You should be able to get it directly through K-Tek. You can reach them by phone at 760-727-0593 or by email at [email protected]. Their offices are located in Vista, California.

Are you able to replace the cable inside?
Put an XLR female (that you can get a grip on) in the bottom and rotate like any screw. Be sure to un-knot the top when taking out and putting in or it will knot up.

Is this compatible with the Rode VideoMic Pro Compact Shotgun Mic?
The rode video mic pro is a shotgun mic designed for dslr shooters. It has a mini jack for hooking into the mic jack of a dslr type camera and a cold shoe for fitting into the top of a dslr. You wouldn't want to use it on this boom pole. What you want is the rode NTG series shotgun mics. These are the video professional grade shotgun microphones, the NTG-1, NTG-2, NTG-3, NTG-4, and NTG-8. I personally use the NTG-1, and it has served me well for almost 8years. It requires phantom power from whatever recording device you are connecting it to but it is a great mic. You'll need a shock mount though to fit it onto the boom pole. I would suggest the Rode SM4 shock mount. Or if you want protection from wind look no further than the rode blimp and windscreen system. With this kit you are good to go for all indoor and outdoor shooting. Hope this helps!
