This boom does much better than you'd expect. It looks a bit chunky and maybe that it might break, but, mine has been going perfectly since the day I got it and I much prefer the adjustors on this than the older style stand. Definitely worth buying
Got this to use as an overhead boom on a K& M 20800 in the studio. So pleased with it. It oozes quality in every respect and probably the best boom I have ever used. So good I will be upgrading all my stands for live applications over the coming months.
