K-Tek KE-144 Reviews
Good product, I would buy this again
Good condition, Great gear, Recommend
Great product for the price
This is my first BOOMPOLE and I have to admit that the build quality and weight are appropriate, and the wire inside is a plus. I give 5 stars but i have to mention that each section when loosen may rotate, and this brings the disadvantage that if not taken care internal cord can become entangled. No big deal if you are careful and hold the section for prevent this to happen. In any case there are a video on k-tek youtube channel that teach what to do in case the internal wire become entangled. In general this is a good option within a budget, I'm more than happy!
This being my first boompole i dont have a lot to compare it to. That being said, its a tiny bit noisy, nothing steady hands cant fix. Ive had slight issues with the bottom extention not collapsing all the way, but a little turning and messing with has fixed that problem. I doubt you could get a better one for the money, and its safe to say im very happy with my decision to buy it.
the boomploe is for my taste a little bit to heavy, otherwise it's well made and it feels it will last forever.
good looking cable
12' feet long and not heavy really. but got to wear cotton gloves when handling this pole, because it makes noise that might get picked up by the Mic.
