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.
