I've used the boom pole for community videos and recently in a short film. The locking mechanism is okay for each section (there could be a danger of over-tightening and thread damage but this hasn't happened to me). With reasonable care it's lasted for years and been reliable. Nothing has broken. It's not particularly heavy but I use it for short enough takes with a Rode NTG2. Nobody who's ever operated it for me has complained about it being too heavy. I have also used it for field-recording in order to avoid hand-held mic noises. It's light enough to be part of a field recording system along with the Rode Blimp, that is portable and not cumbersome.
Very stable and adjustable, works well in all situations. Light to carry around for any type of location shoot. Good quality buil.
Little note: Has the ability/function to route the mic cable through the center of the boom. Helping to eliminate cable chatter/noise when recording. (you can feed a female XLR cable no problem, must remove the XLR Shield though!)
