Rode BOOMPOLE Reviews

Boomy!

Sturdy, lighter than you'd think and boy, does it get long! Yeah, I know, that's what she said, but seriously it's designed cleverly, with a way to thread a whole XLR cable through the length of the boom, once both ends are disassembled. I plan on using it with RDE GO units and an NTG, however, and it holds them in place wonderfully, with two thicknesses of mounting washer pads provided.

Does the job.

I don't have sufficient experience to say a lot. I have used it strictly on a C-stand in a cradle. For those purposes probably the least expensive boompole you can find will do the trick. I did have to order adapters to mount mics but I think that is a normal and modest expense.

Not good a medium-term investment

We've had the Rode Boompole for little more than 2 years, during which it's been used sporadically (a few times per month, not even close to daily) along with a Rode Blimp and an NTG-2. I will cut to the chase: Pros: The 10' length works well, even for relatively wide shots. Weight has never been an issue, even for extended periods of time. It's less expensive than other similarly sized boompoles. Overall construction quality is good, except for... Cons The section joints/locks require lots of tightening or else it slides closed. The joints eventually fail, even with careful tightening. After approx. 1.5 years of use the threads on the first joint became stripped, followed by the second one some months later. The only way we've been able to keep the stripped sections open is by wrapping gaffer's tape around their base. A less than ideal and elegant solution that's also unsafe and lengthens setup. In conclusion: if this is what fits your budget, it does it's job well... until it suddenly stops doing so. At that point you'll come to B&H, leave a review here and shop for a better boompole.

Sturdy and well built

It's not the lightest ever, but the trade off is that this is very sturdy and does a good job. We had a shorter pole before, but this lets you do more. Glad we paid a little more to go with this one.

First boom pole purchased, used it on a stand so we did not have to hold it. For this purpose it works well as designed.

Solid, a bit heavy

It's made well, but it's a bit heavy for a boom pole. Guess it's a trade-off, especially at this price point. Otherwise satisfied.

Works for me!!!

Simply put...Rode makes excellent products! This boompole feels solid and looks totally professional. It has great extension, and a comfortable grip, although it could be just a little lighter. Otherwise, awesome!

Asked by: Loc
Yes, the Rode Boompole for Rode NTG1, NTG2 and Video Mic (10') is a great pairing for use with Rode's NTG line of shotgun microphones along with an appropriate shock mount that matches the form factor of the specific mic and mounts to the pole.

On the very tip of the pole where you attach your audio gear, the gold thing for attaching the mic unit keeps swiveling around and I can't lock it. What am I doing wrong?
Asked by: Mary
Mary again, now with the solution. I took this to local video store (Glazers in Seattle) and they solved this. Gold tip not defective. Solution was the second locking mechanism was not tight enough. The gold tip no longer spins.

question

I just bought an NTG-3 and I already own this pole. Shouldn't I be able to use it with the SM4 mount (with the 3/8 insert) and the Rode NTG-3? Seems odd that only the NTG-2 and NTG1 are mentioned.
Asked by: James
The Rode NTG-3 is compatible the SM4 mount as well, and will attach to this pole using the thread adapter.

question

Will this work with MKE600? I am a bit skeptical despite the 3/8 cause description is so specific to Rode NT series.
Asked by: Brian K.
The Rode Boompole features a standard 3/8 male threading compatible with any mount that features a 3/8 threading. This pole is in no way specific to Rode mics.

question

What XLR gauge will thread through the inside?
Asked by: Andre P.
These posts are old, and the answers have been wrong. I own it. I have an xlr cable in it. I don't know what gauge it is, but it's light (and it's def not coiled). I came here hoping to see what size is best. Maybe B&H Staff could clear this one up.
