Fragile, aluminum threads break off easily

By Jeff

We originally purchased 6 of these for regular use several days per week. So far using these over the last four months 2 of them have broken and are not useable. The aluminum threads where the mic mount is attached to the pole eventually snap off and the unit is unrepairable. The aluminum is simply too thin where the threads are, making it very easy to snap off if dropped or mishandled.

Lightweight, strong, reliable. Handy carrying case. Use it for rigging pair of mics in ORTF format above chamber music ensembles.

Great value

My Sound guy used it to film a Marshall Arts training session. Me on Camera and him with an H6 and the 418 were moving all over the ring. Pole worked great and we got great shots and great sound

Exactly what we needed!

We looked at a lot of boom poles for our on-the-go shoots. This one won because if the good reviews and decent price. It didn't disappoint. Just last week we had a full day of shooting (10 hours) across 6 locations. Being able to quickly set up and pack up was essential, and this boom arm is very easy. We used cable ties to keep the external audio cable from rattling. The audio we got was excellent quality, with no pinging, jangling, or extra sounds due to motion, though we were filming outdoors most of the time with lots of background noise, so your mileage may vary. This pole *DOES NOT* include an extension cable for audio, but you can internally mount one if you wish. I didn't do so because, for us, this wasn't necessary. We use a few different types of mics for different situations. Some use XLR, some use standard audio jacks, not being tied into one architecture or the other is great when you're on a tight budget and you have somewhat of an equipment hodgepodge.

Great for beginners

This is a nice boom pole not to cheap or high quality its like in does feel like it will last a long time.dosent feel to heavy with a mic and shockmount attached.only thing negative is the space to allow the mic cord to run down from the top is quite slim so my current microphone cord would not need a slim skinny cord to be able to hide the wire.other than that its a great boom.

Really happy with this boom pole! I use it for my shotgun mic and run the cable through the middle. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to run the cable through the top and also to figure out how to extend or shorten the pole with the cable inside it. I also put an insta360 One X2 on the top of the top for an extra long selfie stick!

Does the job

I was surprised by how much I liked this pole. It worked fine for me for about 6 months of regular narrative & commercial work as a beginner production sound mixer operating out of a bag, in hectic environments and putting it thru a fair amount of abuse. I liked the clamp mechanisms and the feel of the pole. It's rigid enough, feels good in your hands, and the length is just enough - I often use it at full extension - although I would have appreciated a bit of extra reach at times. Last week one of the fasteners finally broke. It no longer tightens all the way, and lets the pole split in two if you tug it apart. So, looks like it's time to upgrade to a k-tek pole, which extends about 1.2ft further, weighs about the same (even including the internal cable) and only costs about $260. If you need a simple pole for once in a while use, or to get you going as a sound mixer, or as a cheap backup, this one is great. However I'd go for the KE-110CCR if you're serious about booming but don't have the budget for a carbon pole. Just my 2c.

The E-Image BA09 does not have a spec for maximum weight capacity, but it has enough tensile strength to support most shotgun microphones and wind protection systems.
