Made from carbon fibre, the RODE Boompole Pro weighs only 535gm (18oz) &, from a compact 810mm (2' 8"), extends to a full 3m (10'). Designed for use with professional shotgun microphones such as the RODE NTG3 as well as the Blimp windshield system, the Boompole Pro joins RODE's popular boom pole range which now consists of five models ranging in size, weight, & construction material. Each of the five pole sections is comprised completely from carbon fibre making it incredible lightweight while maintaining high levels of strength. The sections are easily extendable with one hand thanks to an intuitive twist-lock mechanic. RODE offers boom pole cable clips as an optional accessory, however the company's new RODELink wireless XLR adaptor allows users to record audio from a shotgun microphone on the end of the Boompole Pro without the hassle & possible handling noise of cables.
