Ambient's Quickpole Series 5 is their best and most lightweight boom pole yet! It's the perfect product for long days on set where fatigue is likely. The sleek design and light weight of the pole make for ease of use that keep a boom operator happy and satisfied.
Light & Sturdy
Our Series 5 booms combine the best properties of the QXS and the QP series thanks to our exciting new tube technology. We use a custom-made carbon fiber compound with added UHM fiber layering. With this technology, the QuickPole S5 boom pole becomes as sturdy as the QP 4-segments series but is still as lightweight as the QXS 5-segments series. The new construction also allows us to introduce the new QP5150 model, a boom that extends to over 6 meters (20.99 ft): a well-balanced professional boom pole with no ifs, ands, or buts.
Easy extending and collapsing
On set, you have to work fast. Our Series 5 QuickPole addresses that with another new key feature: the new Teflon sheet plus a silicone-lubricated felts that make for silky-smooth extending and collapsing of our boom pole. The telescoping function of our pole works so quickly that you’ll be able to capture any sound source. The re-engineered locks give you better grip thanks to the refined knurling and slightly extended length. We have tuned the threading further; with just a quarter turn the locks open and close securely yet lightning fast.
Intersectional twist protection
You’ll also love our new anti-twist mechanism of the pole-sections: we replaced the retention pin with an innovative serration. The lock pieces automatically fall into place when you disassemble and reassemble your pole for cleaning or maintenance – what used to be an easy process has become effortless.
The newly designed tip and optional bottom end allow for easy, solder-free cable retrofit. Simply take off the tip, insert the pre-configured internal cabling and plug it into the butt-end. No muss, no fuss – that’s how a coupling system should be.
