K-Tek Adds New Option To Its Avalon Telescoping Poles

News Image
K-Tek has added a new option to its line of Avalon telescoping poles.

To fulfill the diverse sound needs of professional content creators and sound boom operators, the brand introduces the 5-Section Essential Boompole (KC108) which collapses to a compact 29.5" (74.9 cm) and extends to 9 feet (275 cm).

The Essential is a lightweight pole useful for novice boom operators to cost-effectively hone their skills and for tight budget crews to benefit from professional style gear. Made in the USA with K-Tek's new proprietary high-density tubing, the KC108 boompole weighs just 1.2 pounds (544 g) yet is extremely rugged. It features a 3/8″-16 male thread fixed top attachment for external cabling and anodised surface collars which provide a firm grip and smooth feel when engaging. Thanks to the tube's sleek finish, each section easily glides open and closed.

When collapsed the Essential conveniently fits in a standard 1650 and 1637 Peli-Case, or medium-sized luggage for easy travel.
