    Boom Pole Holder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 163.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's bent metal This is an amazing piece of bent metal. It holds a pole and it holds it really well. Did I mention that it's also coated in rubber? Well, guess what, it is! So, let that sink in for a moment, you're getting a bent piece of metal AND it's coated in rubber. Did I just blow your mind? I'm no metals expert, but I have to imagine that someone very experienced in heating and bending metal took about forty eight cents worth of metal and then bent it in just the right way so that it's useful to a video person and then looked at it and said you know what would make this complete? Rubber. That person then took ten cents worth of rubber and coated the whole darn thing. Once the masterpiece was complete, I'm sure the craftsman sat back in their leather recliner and said I've got about a dollars worth of material here, but a lifetimes worth of metal knowledge, what would that be worth to video people? What would those people be willing to be for this incredible bent metal? 100x the material costs? 1,000x the materials costs? Doesn't matter, there is no competition, so it can be as much profit as they want to make. In the end, it's an amazing piece of bent metal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No longer have to pay boom ops The headline says it all. No, I still hire a boom op when in the field or have to have mobile sound on set but, for those sit down interviews I'm able to breeze through and not have to worry about the mic dipping into the shot. It's easy to use. Just clamp it in a grip head on a c-stand, extend the arm (or don't), apply boompole and you're done (don't forget to drop some dirt.) My only complaint is length. There is maybe 6 or 7 inches from the fork to the hook. I would like it to be a little longer to cover more real estate so the boom feels more secure. Other than that it's golden.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid piece of kit that does the job!!! Before I bought this (to use in a grip head on a C-stand), I was using the BoomBuddy on a light stand. (Check it out on YouTube) While that's a nice product, they obviously never heard the term "Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey", because it was designed in the *opposite* way and there was no way to reverse it, due to its construction. Anyway...I should've made this upgrade a long time ago.? This boom pole holder is well made.? Solid construction.? Works perfectly. Obviously this method is infinitely more secure. This is definitely the way to go for situations where your mic can be stationary.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful Tool I am a cinematographer who often shoots interviews with small crews. This Boom Pole Holder has been incredibly helpful as it allows me to easily and safely place the boom pole and mic where I want it without worrying about it falling, or having to have a grip hold it. The boom pole sits in the cradle very securely. When held by the knuckle on a c-stand it is adjustable and can be put wherever needed. Using the knuckle to place the boom pole where you want it isn't as easy as it could be, just because of the design of the knuckle, but it only takes a few extra seconds and mounting the knuckle to the arm to get it to be more maneuverable. Super happy with this purchase! I highly recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than BoomMate I have both this Auray boom pole holder and the B&H BoomMate, and this one is much more solid. Highly recommended. It fits perfectly in the Matthews Minigrip, whereas you have to completely unscrew the Minigrip to fit the BoomMate inside. Combine this holder with the minigrip, and the very small Manfrotto 5001B light stand, and it's a perfect travel-size boom holder for indoor interviews. I hang a backpack on the light stand, to counter the top heavy weight, rather than bringing along sandbags.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is what it is It is what it is and it does what it's suppose to. They make the same thing for holding fishing poles at boating stores for a little less money, and they work exactly the same.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds my rode micro boom pole Holds my Rode micro boom pole, easy setup, great for shooting alone. Highly recommended, and it is heavy duty steel so it can hold pretty much any boom pole size or weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dead Simple and Reliable This is a very simple product but will save you a lot of headaches (or back-aches) in static interview situations. For a standard seated interview set-up I used two of these with boompoles and Sennheiser 416's and with minimal adjustment between interview subjects it saved us a lot of trouble and sore bodies. They are very sturdy, even at near full extension on one boom (12') the holder only showed minor sway, but to me better to see a bit of sway than an abrupt snap. Would definetly recommend them if your looking for this type of product.

    Can this mount to a light stand?

    Whats the maximum weight this can handle? Was hoping to use with a monopod and FS5.
    Asked by: tyler
    I wouldn't trust this thing with a camera. Get a Cardellini clamp or something instead.

    Is there any way I could mount this onto a boom stand with a 5/8 male thread? Maybe an adapter? If anybody knows please let me know.
    Asked by: ethan
    Yes with a C stand Knuckle, something every cinematographer should have in the kit. Just make sure the boom pole and Mic don't get too front heavy, if so sandbag the stand to stabilize it. Better yet use a century stand rather than a lightweight light stand.
