Rode Boompole Pro
Carbon Fiber Boompole - 10 Feet
Made from carbon fibre, the RØDE Boompole Pro weighs only 535 gram (18 ounce) and, from a compact 810 millimeter (2 feet 8 inches), extends to a full 3 meter (10 feet). Designed for use with professional shotgun microphones such as the RØDE NTG3 as well as the Blimp windshield system, the Boompole Pro joins RØDE’s popular boom pole range which now consists of five models ranging in size, weight, and 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. RØDE offers boom pole cable clips as an optional accessory, however the company’s new RØDELink wireless XLR adaptor allows users to record audio from a shotgun microphone on the end of the Boompole Pro without the hassle and possible handling noise of cables.
From its humble beginning in the 1990s, RØDE Microphones has gone from strength to strength on the global stage and has become the go-to microphone for a variety of industries. RØDE employs the latest technology and precision machinery to continue to keep its products at world-class standards and at a great price.

1: You are supposed to turn each extension to lock it into place. However, this does not function well. It just keeps turning, and there is no real way for you to "tighten" it enough so it will not rattle around.
2: Each section tends to rattle around because of the issue mentioned above. This causes the noise to travel through the mic.
3: There are plastic rings at the end of each section. These are a major weak point and if you look at other reviews, these points have broken quite easily.
The bottom line:
This item with the RODE name on it is cheaply built, and will not stand up to the real world. Do not believe the overwhelming positive reviews. Stay away from this item and get something else.
Tiene buena construccion y acabado, mejor de lo que yo esperaba, y me sorprendio que vinieran en un empaque muy protegido; es claro que su precio indica que es una boom pole de introducción, un paso adelante de lo amateur para no utilizar elementos caseros, es decir para personas que quieren darle a sus video o tomas de sonido una mejor producción, supongo ademas que su duracion dependera del cuidado que se tenga en su manipulación y en la fuerza de ajuste en las secciones, que por cierto no necesita gran fuerza ni torque para sustentarlo en la longitud; me sorprendio además el hecho que no se flexara con un zepelin y pistol grip pesado, como se observa en las fotos
UPDATE: After having this boom pole for a few years (2 I think) The gold connector that connects the shock mount to the boom pole has stripped, rendering it useless. I have contacted Rode because I cannot find another connector anywhere online so I am going to see if I can at least purchase just that part instead of another boom pole. I will update after I have the answer.
UPDATE II: I was able to get in touch with RODE and I must say they are one of the BEST companies I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I asked them about purchasing the connector and they asked for my address and sent a new one for FREE. No shipping, no charge at all. They said 7-10 business days and I had my replacement part in about 4 or 5 which REALLY impressed me. If nothing else get this boom pole just for the excellent quality, affordable price and UNBEATABLE customer service. I will now by a RODE customer for life!!!
1. Very lightweight
2. Easy to expand/collapse
3. Compact (great for recording in tight spaces or for transporting on long hauls)
4. Noise from handling is minimal during recording (handling any boom requires good technique to avoid ANY sound transference)
Probably the only thing negative I can think of with this pole (which is true for most poles) is that affixing the microphone wire along the pole can sometimes create unwanted tapping. Of course, this is where pole technique comes into play but more importantly, how you set up your rig. The more expensive poles have a feature where the XLR connection runs through the inside of pole however that feature worth the price you pay, I'm sure.
If you already own a good supply of equipment or are operating simultaneous sound recordings, this is will make a great backup. But if you're like me, working on a very tight (and low) budget, this IS DEFINITELY WORTH the investment. I'm very happy with it
