Outstanding Sounds Start Hear (pun intended)

By Martin

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Rode Boompole:

Use this with the rode blimp and NTG-3. Its a good length when extended, and folds down - but you have to master the twist/release tighten, it is not obvious, and if you twist the wrong way you can over tighten. It is also quite heavy when extended, so for a long session you need some additional support, or very strong arms. But construction quality is fine, and works reliably.

Nice pole

By John I.

from Canberra

Comments about Rode Boompole:

A well-designed product. I don't see how more expensive boom-poles can justify their price. The carbon fibre model is nearly triple the price, but at barely half the weight, it is for all intents and purposes the same product.

    Comments about Rode Boompole:

    This RODE pole is very light, well designed and easily adjusted. I especially like that there are cut outs on both ends to run audio cable up the centre of the pole eliminating loose cable that can bang on windy days if not kept tight. On full extension for long periods I just use a waste mounted fishing pole holder

        I purchased this to mount a GoPro, for dynamic shots of my kids racing Human powered Vehicles, but I now use it on set (I work in the film industry) to get great high angle location and "making of" shots.

        An excellent, professional quality Boompole at the best price I could find for a Boompole of similar quality. I know I will be getting years of use out of this product and so far it has greatly increased my production value

          Comments about Rode Boompole:

          It was aan absolute pleasure dealing with VideoGuys Australia. The phone staff listened to my needs - did the research on my behalf then called me back quickly with a few purchase options - and their recommendation. It was exactly what I needed - they sent me an easy 1 click purchase email - I had the gear with 36 hours. I would highly recommend VideoGuys to anyone looking to purchase gear for an upcoming shoot. Thanks guys - I'll be back soon...

          Comments about Rode Boompole:

          The RODE boom is affordable but still offers a quality product.

          The locking rings on the boom must be screwed with a tight grip or youll find it isn't working effectively.
          Also make sure you use the boom properly. Unscrewing/screwing while gripping the wrong part and you're forcing the wrong parts to swivel and gyrate. You will be able to feel distinctly when it is actually the thread you are using and not just swivelling the pole.

          Pretty much perfect... lightweight, strong, good value.

          Some of the sections are a bit difficult to lock in place but when screwed tight they won't come loose.
