Rycote has announced new Mic Boom Poles. The new range of professional carbon fibre microphone boom poles aims to provide a fully integrated system for sound professionals.
The Rycote Mic Boom Poles have been designed and co-developed with tripod manufacturer Gitzo to combine cutting edge tube and locking technology with noise-free sound expertise. By also utilizing Vitec’s carbon fibre technology that can be found in the Flowtech tripods, Rycote has tried to come up with a well balanced and precise tool for boom operators.
The lightweight carbon fibre boom poles feature sliding tubes, intuitive locks, and rattle-free positioning. High modulus (HM) “Carbon eXact” developed in partnership with Gitzo tripods allows for narrower tubes to be even stiffer.
Both the 3/8” threaded male tip and the rubberized bottom end cap are removable to allow for easy internal cabling or cabling adjustments.
Fast & Secure Locks
The boom poles feature twist-locks with a multi-pitched thread that allows for quick extension and collapse with only a quarter-turn of the knurled aluminum grip to open or lock each section. The design guarantees tube sections do not twist when unlocked. Even though they feature a dust-preventative design, each section can be disassembled and reassembled for cleaning or maintenance.
The Rycote 5-section carbon fibre microphone boom poles are available in three different lengths that will accommodate any application, each with a rated payload of 5kg/11.02lbs.
