    Rode MICRO BOOMPOLE Reviews

    Micro Boompole 3-Section Telescopic Boompole is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 177.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rode Boompole The boompole is a very cost effective, lightweight alternative to most professional poles or using an audio engineer. I agree with others, it's tough to beat this price. But, it does not flex or hide audio cables - it just extends (3 sections) and you have to aim or tilt your mic on your own. Handle is great. Don't forget clips for your mic cable (pack of 5) and the end of the pole is 3/8 so make sure your shock mount or mic connects to this. B&H does sell a pack of 2 metal adapters I purchased to connect existing 3/8 male to 5/8 female. Wish they said this when I was buying it. Note: clips don't work on the boompole handle - to big.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor design of threads Seems like a decent boompole - though I'll probably upgrade if I end up using it much. Right off the bat, I'm not thrilled with the threads at the end. They are 3/8", and most of the attachments for mics have 5/8" threads, or 1/4" for things like the threads in the bottom of coldshoe mounts. Then there is the fact that the 3/8" threads only stick up a couple mm from the rubber sleeve. Not sure if the rubber sleeve is supposed to be removed, or if I'm supposed to just screw the mic down and compress the sleeve. I immediately had to go purchase a 3/8" to 5/8" adapter. Otherwise, it seems pretty well built if a little light weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low-Budget Dream A perfect five for this? It's got a whole lot more to do with the price. For this price, you get a more-than-usably long boom pole. It's not the sturdiest pole I've handled, but it is plenty tough. Gotta wind your XLR around the length of the pole - there's no slot to feed it through. And the locking mechanism is weird. It's not a tightening lock, but more like a bayonet-style, if bayonets could twist past the lock pin. Hard to explain, but I'll say that it's fidgety. Still, on top of all that, for the price, it is exactly what you need to start capturing - if you're a first-time boom pole owner. Upgrade at your first big chance - longer and sturdier is always better, but this'll do you well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very basic, but does the job At less than seven feet, this boom pole is not useful in every situation, but it does the job in many cases. Keep in mind this pole is NOT made to receive and conceal the mic cable. You'll have to tie or Velcro the cable to the pole to keep it neat and out of frame.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from You're Paying for the Name This is a fine boom pole, and truth be told, it is my second after I left my first in southern Africa. It is simple and super easy to use, BUT it is not worth $. I bought this again because I didn't want the variable of a boom with which I was not familiar breaking when I needed it most and I was in a hurry, so I just bought this one again.I dislike the small thread on the end and as such you will need a thread adapter to make it work with standard mic clips. I also dislike how long it is when it is collapsed. You would image it could be a bit shorter as it is difficult to fly with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Boompole for the Price This is a sturdy and solidly built boompole. For $*, it does what it needs to do. It extends further than expected and still hold fairly strong when fully extended. The grip is one of it's best features. Really comfortable.My only gripe is that it didn't fit my shock mount. I fixed that by getting a 3/8 coupler at Lowes and Frankensteining it together. Works perfectly though now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with Rode Products but.... I used this pole when I used a Rode Microphone for a company I used to work with. Great length and did everything I needed it to do.Now I've just gotten in my SMX-10 stereo mic, which I decided to get over the Rode Videomic, because it's a little less expensive. I don't know if Rode has set this up, but I can't get my SMX-10 to connect to the pole... What a pain! If you know how I can attach them and I just sound silly on here please email me @ kbodonne@ (don't spam only serious help :)Other than the incompatibility issues I've used this before with all Rode products and the pole is sturdy, long enough, and easily adjustable with the twist grip action.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for Travel I have two of these for work making short documentaries in random places around Latin America. Indoor, outdoor, it's a pretty good boom pole. It's light and can be compact, which is great for travel. I use it with an SGM-1X - Shotgun Mic, and I made the purchase after reading a review online of someone else who used the same combination. It does work, barely. The threads on the end of the pole screw into the secondary hole on the mic mount by less than half an inch, and will easily unscrew by the weight of an XLR cord if I am not careful. Given another chance, and if I could find another pole with the same lightness but a better way to attach my mic, I would go for that pole instead.
