    Boompole for Rode NTG1, NTG2 and Video Mic (10') is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 82.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent price, but I've been using this product just over two years now. I should also mention that I mean use once a week or less. Not what I would consider heavy use. After a year or so one of the sections completely seized up. After taking the whole thing completely apart I discovered that one of the tightening sections had completely stripped it's thread and was beyond repair. What I do like about this pole is that it feels sturdy, the weight is ok, and it has foam padding around the last section of the pole. So while I would recomend it for mild use, if you are a pro and need this for constant use, I would keep looking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not well enough explained and shown! - It's a great product, sturdy enough and very well made. - It's not as light as a carbon fiber one, but it has other features that makes me like it even more like the ability to feed the cable through the pole. - The twist-locks are solid and seems durable. - The foam on the handle helps to hold the pole and it's long enough for both arms. - There's a rubber stopper to put on the 3/8 that is welcome when using a shockmount with an adapter (5/8 to 3/8) because the rubber helps to tight in place when screwing the shockmount to the pole. - The retracted length is great when you have to carry or record in tight places.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boompole for the Price! I did a lot of searching around and read a lot of reviews and ended up going with this boom pole. I'd read pros & cons to having the XLR in or outside of the pole, so it's nice being able to choose between the two, especially since I get to choose the quality of the XLR cable I use. 10 feet's a good length, not too short, not too long; though I'm primarily using it for indoors. All in all, so far so good. I haven't had the boom pole for very long yet, but I'm happy with it so far, no complaints, especially for this price. Definitely recommend getting one without an XLR cable though or with the option; whipping the boom pole around really fast with the cable inside definitely creates some noise the mic picks up.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from cheap This is a heavy-duty boom pole. We use it mainly gripped in a c-stand overhead for interviews. We have two of these. The locking mechanism in the joints of the older one stripped after about a year, and now it's a pain to setup/breakdown. Also, not all cables fit through the pole - audio cable has to be on the thin side. The cardboard tube it comes with would be OK for storage, too - it's built fairly tough for cardboard, except the bottom is just a little cardboard disk and falls out really easily, the rest of it is great. I think you get what you pay for with this boom. It works. It's not going to snap in half, but if I was a boom operator and looking to use it regularly throughout the day, I'd look at other options.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected, in a good way I bought this pole because it was more reasonably within my budget, and because it went out to 10 feet. It has a great padded handle on the bottommost stage, and works as a non-wired boompole. BUT, if you wanted it to be wired it is hollow and the components on either end are made so that you can put a coiled XLR in the pole and make it a wired boompole. I am pretty excited about that prospect. The only things I'm not in love with is that it's a little heavier (so hopefully that means it's sturdier), and (as with a lot of cheaper poles) it can be a pain to lock and unlock stages. For the cost though, it's a great buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Boom Pole This pole works really well with the Rode Pistol grip and a tripod with a boom pole holder on it. I don't recommend fishing the XLR cable through it. It's really hard to extend and retract the pole easily, especially when you're running around. The twist-to-tighten sections are nice and long, lightweight, but it takes some getting used to to get them to tighten the right way. I do really like the grip on the end for its comfort.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I haven't used the more expensive options, but this one seems fine. Nice and sturdy. The twist locks are a bit weird but once you get the hang of them they work fine. Only problem is that it's supposed to allow internal routing of the XLR cable but every single cable I have has ends too large to fit through the pole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Professional Product The length is a definite plus. I use it with my Rode Blimp. The plugs at each end have slots that allow for a XLR cable to run thru the pole. It also has nice velcro straps should you choose not to run the cable. This pole has a soft handle which is good for long shoots. I tried making a homemade boom pole like yo see on the net and the end broke off, crashing my blimp on the floor. Not good. The blimp held up though without a scratch, lol. That's when I quit toying and bought this boom. Pro shotgun mics etc. are too costly to go cheap on what holds them.
