Hi, what is the "closed dimension" of this boom arm including the hook? I've seen some site showed 124cm while others are shorter. As I'm planning to get this with a transporting case and many cases have length less than 120cm.

question

what does the forked thing in the middle connect to?
Asked by: Michael
Michael:Thanks for your patience. Doing senior portraits all weekend. The connector or what looks like a fork connects to any Kupo grip head. The baby boom is used to position lights above a client's head, for example when using a beauty dish above their head and about an arms length away. On the other end is a hook to attach a sandbag that acts as a counter balance. You can check the videos on the Kupo web site. This baby boon is a valuable tool in the studio and worth every penny. Hope this helps. Thanks.Greg A.

question

Does the maximum load of 11 pounds include the counterweight? Or is it 11 pounds on the extended end, and then the counter weight is in addition to that?
Asked by: Daniel S.
11 pounds on the extended end then add your counter weight, but at full extension there will be some bending. It should be ok though.
