from Win, Win, Win!Bought these for several reasons. First, our existing boom assy's have been stripped and retapped several times each!...'bout out of metal to retap! Plus, the new ones are compact enough that in tight places, I can shorten the boom without 2 or so feet poking out the other end. And finally, a shorter boom is just a little more compact when we fold them down for transport. Win, Win, Win!Quality-wise, I'm impressed. They stay where ya put 'em and do everything we need a mic boom to do and bonus...with the square barrel, they look sharp doing it!

from Specs Not AccurateThe spec on this boom is given as 20.75"- 35.75". The actual length of the boom arm is 30.5" when fully collapsed and a good 45" + when fully extended. I bought this in order to have a couple of compact booms to use when my long, fixed booms didn't fit the bill. My solution? I'm going to remove the end cap and cut them down a good 10". Also, there is no positive stop on the extension where the mic clip thread is. Therefore, you can pull the part right out, inadvertently. Not a very good design, IMO. The best part about this item is the price. The build quality is OK, but still reflects the price point.
