Rycote Boom Poles

Boom PolesRycote telescoping boom poles are designed for many booming situations including ENG, EFP, sports coverage, documentaries and film & video. All Rycote boom poles are equipped with a unique and helpful feature - a patented triple-cam locking system delivering a fresh approach to the classic boom pole design. It is completely different from any other boom pole on the market. To reduce weight and simplify using and cleaning of the pole, the locking system uses no metal components and only requires a simple 15º twist to lock in place.

When exposed to extreme environments, all pole collars will be susceptible to dirt, sand and moisture incursion. The locking system on Rycote poles can be stripped down completely with ease for cleaning as required. There is no worrying about removing sand like with a typical collar's thread grease. The tubing on the poles is made from either super-lightweight, premium carbon fiber or high-grade 1mm thick aluminum alloy. The poles components are durable enough for the punishing effects of field work yet still comfortable to work with and light in weight.

pole's rubber base The optional coiled cable for G5/A5 poles is constructed from quality materials and will provide years of trouble free operation. The cable is removable. The pole's rubber base design incorporates a custom fitting for securing the XLR connector and supplying the necessary cable strain relief when continuously extended and collapsed. The base will allow for a plug-on wireless transmitter to be inserted at the end of the pole without compromise. A standard G5 or A5 can easily be upgraded by purchasing the coiled cable kit when desired.
