    K-Tek KE-79CC reviews

    KE-79CC Traveler Avalon Series Aluminum Boompole with Internal XLR Cable is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A simple but good boom I like this boom, it's pretty compact. Kinda heavy, not carbon fiber for sure. It's solid though, and does the job, simple and straightforward. I noticed that the XLR connection on the bottom seems pretty solid and won't bust out and cause problems, like other boompoles I've used (the XLR connection would break loose and fall inside the pole). My only issues is that the coiled cord inside the pole bangs against the pole when you are moving the pole quickly, or running with the pole. This will be a problem with fast moving action shots where the pole has to move quickly or alot. Also, extending the pole can be a hassle when you get to the bottom two twisters, you have to hold both extensions to get the lug loose. Other than this, it's pretty simple and all around.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great equipment at a reasonable price! I use this boom pole for all my work. I make documentaries and travel light - so the KE-79CC is a great choice since it collapses to under 2 feet yet extends to over 7 feet! The internal XLR coil is of course a headache-preventer on set. Universal screw compatibility with all popular shock mounts and mic holders. Once in awhile the internal cable gets jammed when being collapsed back down to size, so that's what prevents this from getting a perfect score in my book. Nonetheless, a great buy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save yourself some dough... buy this I have worked in television location production for 27 years. I was worried about buying this pole because it isn't a carbon fiber pole... now that I have it I can tell you... carbon fiber is over rated. When comparing it to my carbon fiber poles of similar size, the weigh difference is VERY minimal. I may never buy another carbon fiber pole. Seems very rugged and well made. Other sound guys have commented on its high quality. Don't hesitate save some money... buy this pole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient, small, light, but short Folds down to a very small size, easy to fly with and throw in a backpack. Coiled cable means its ready to go quickly and you have one less cable to pack. The cable inside can bump around if you move the boom quickly, a decent suspension system and bass roll off will help this quite a bit. I'm sure the cable won't last forever but the convenience for me is more important. Not long enough for anything but relatively close shots, but great for run and gun in a crowded space. Cable uses high quality Neutrik and Switchcraft XLR connectors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great compact size I've been working with a lower end fishing pole for the last few years when I have one man band shoots. I finally decided I needed a come compact, professional boom pole. This one is great and fits in most of my medium sized cases (Pelican 1510, my Portabrace camera case etc). My only wish would have been for a side exit XLR so I it can rest on its end with less risk of port damage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a thing of beauty light, small and great for travel. The interior coiled cord is great
    Date published: 2010-06-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shockingly compact A truly excellent choice for a travel kit. Solid, well-designed, and compact. Not the best choice for daily-grind, on-production, travel-with-lots-of-stuff-anyway operation, since it's a lot of sections for not an amazing reach. That said, had it with me on a long trip for which I only had sporadic need for a boom pole, and it was always there with me and worked beautifully for my ENG/doc needs.
    Date published: 2013-09-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good in a pinch Good all purpose location boom pole. Perfect for small location packages with tight luggage constraints.
