    K-Tek KEG-88CC reviews

    KEG-88CC Avalon Series Graphite Boompole with Internal Coiled XLR Cable is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from no better than gitzo for a lot more mone I shelled out for this because I was tired of the gitzo one I have sliding around and dropping the mic. The collars on this boom slip just as bad if not worse, they are really precision cut metal which is precise, but which also can cut the heck out of your knuckles as they have done mine and the internal coil gets stuck in there and it's hard to collapse the whole thing down. What's nice is that it compresses to a very short length. And is very light and easy to wield. If you're not shooting sports interviews and you aren't in need of it for specialized applications in tv and film like scenes with politicians in little crowds of people, this boom is plenty long for pretty much everything you do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs small but be careful I love this boompole. I have used it for the last year on a documentary around the western US. I specifically purchased this pole because I could pack it into my personal luggage and it still had an internal cable. This pole is very light but still strong with the ability to extend a fair amount. The build quality on this little guy is very good and I would purchase this pole over and over again. The one issue I have had is that with the pole being so short when collapsed, the cable often gets in the way preventing total collapse. I also learned that you need to be super careful with any pole that is internally cabled so as to not twist the sections and thus the cable. Once you do that you run the risk of breaking the connection of the cable at the base of the pole. K-Tek explicitly tells you not to twist the sections of the pole. (I didn't notice this until it was too late. D'oh!) Because of what I know now, I would probably opt for the uncabled version or one of the Klassic straight-cabled poles. That said, I love this boom pole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The boom that fits. I bought this for documentary work. As I travel a lot, I needed a boom that was light weight and compact and this perfectly fits the bill. Having so many sections this boom collapses down to a length that allows me to tuck it into a suitcase/duffel and not need to hand carry it on board a plane. It's long enough for almost any documentary/interview application but I could see the limitations in some dramatic work due to it's relatively shorter length. Being carbon fiber it's super light and great for extended hand holding situations. Highly recommended.
