    Comments about Manfrotto 3-Section Extension Pole (35- 92") (Black):

    I bought this, along with an Impact Heavy Duty Light Stand (13'), specifically to facilitate hoisting my T3i with 10-18 EFS 20' in the air to photograph a wall mural in a 6' wide hallway. It telescopes very smoothly and locks solidly. A little sway at the top but it settled down quickly. No issues. Highly recommended.

        I use this for holding my Paul C Buff light and softbox when shooting outdoors. The pole is solid and does not bend when the light and softbox are attached. It also extends fairly high giving me more lighting options.

          Comments about Manfrotto 3-Section Extension Pole (35- 92") (Black):

          We are using AEA versions of the Manfrotto lighting stands for microphones since they will go up pretty high over an ensemble or orchestra. Well, as high as they go, we still wanted to go a little higher on occasion. The 099B Extension Pole is perfect for getting that additional couple of feet. Of course the build quality on this item, as well as other Manfrotto products, is excellent and will do the job whether it's lights or Microphones.

            I have a Manfrotto stands which fits this extension pole perfectly, and it's a dream - once I screw the base in, it's quite stable, and it doesn't add too much weight to my stand-bag. Very handy when recording orchestras!

                    Useful for extending the 1004bac a few more feet for a pair of light mics. Don't think it would work for heavy microphones though.

                        I use this extension pole,running microphones high up for concert recording . This extension pole along with a clamp is perfect in many applications. It allows me to run my mics high up above the crowd level, while clamping to theatre seats. Its closed lenght is a bit long.

                            I use the 3 section extension and a superclamp for field recordings in areas that I can't setup a tripod. Theatre settings clamped to arm rests, as well as clamped to the ceiling in small bars where I don't want to be setup in the middle of the crowd but need my microphones to be there. Lightweight and well built like all manfrotto products

                                    Comments about Manfrotto 3-Section Extension Pole (35- 92") (Black):

                                    I got this to use for my over head lighting system in my studio. I was looking for a telescopic pole, however didn't realize just how long this thing was....lol. Too long to use for my intended purpose, so I took apart a smaller light stand I have and use the two small extension sections to hang my lights and used this item to make an almost brand new light stand. Everything fit...success.

                                        Well made! Does exactly what I needed it to do. I put it on a heavy duty light stand to create a streetlight effect on an automobile shoot. It held a lightweight studio strobe with a small bounce umbrella. It was perfectly secure but it was kind of unnerving seeing my light that high. I'm buying one or two more to raise my lights to light dancers on a stage.
