Ktek-79cc Review

Well I received my new boom pole today With the free shipping from BH its total cost was $209.00. When The UPS driver handed me the box surprised how small the pole really was. I opened it and was surprised how well built it was and it is small enough to fit inside my 1510 carry on Pelican case which made me very happy. it extend to almost 7 feet which I think should be enough for most of the ENG Run and Gun jobs I do . So if you need a small boompole than fits in any size case buy this one

My New Boompole

I have grown tired of carrying around a boom pole on reality tv and gun/run jobs that is always getting in the way especially since I really don’t use it all that much. I currently have a K-tek Stage pole that extends to 18 feet I rarely use this pole anymore except for when I do film work or on set tv work I love the pole but it is way to big to carry around. I have for the last three years been using a K-tek Avalon pole that extends to 9 feet it was under $200.00 and has been a great value for the price but it is still too big collasped at about 32in or so. I find it difficult to fit in my luggage and when trying to get into cars and go run/gun when I am not using it that much. So with more run/gun work coming up I decided to look into other option the most attract was the K-tek 56cc which is only 1ft 4in and extend to 4ft 11in but it was close to $500.00 and 4ft 11in is to short. So i decided on the KE 79cc which is 20in and extend to almost 7ft and for $209.00 shipped was a “Sound” invest alright bad joke…… I will get on WED and let everyone know what I think
