The K123 has a collapsed length of 2'6 | 76cm and an extended length of 10'3 | 331cm and only weighs 1.3lbs | 581g. This 6-section Traveler Boompole is uncabled.
The top attachment is a 3/8 - 16 male thread and the bottom attachment is a Collar with Rubber bottom.
K-Tek Traveler Klassic Boom Poles are constructed from high-density graphite selected for maximum strength and minimum weight. Eight layers of dent-proof graphite are precision ground and then burnished to produce a low handling-noise finish.
Traveler Boom Poles are the perfect Boom Pole for frequent travelers and any situation where the Boompole has to pack up small but still extend to long lengths; this is achieved by having more sections with a relatively short collapsed length.
Telescoping sections are connected with our proprietary locking system.
The 'captive collet' is held within a collar. With just a gentle twist, the collar squeezes the collet to lock the pole in position. The collar has a aluminum sleeve studded with a unique dimple design that provides a pleasant touch and good grip under all conditions, even in extreme temperatures and humidity.
The bottom coupling allows boom operators to attach a variety of accessories making all K-Tek Klassic Boom Pole modular. In today's changing production landscape this future-proof modularity translates to versatily from shot to shot, scene to scene and location to location.
