Vdb boom pole fails to lock tight
jimmycat posted a topic in The Daily JournalRecently, I found two sections of my Vdb XL-QT are unable to be locked tightly. Used indoor, the pole is alright, but when the blimp and windjammer are on, the two collars of the pole simply can’t hold the weight and those two sections would easily turn. I wonder why it happens. I rarely use this pole in unusual locations like the beach. Is there anything I can do to fix it by myself instead sending it back to Vdb or even purchasing a new pole? My appreciation.
Cleaning a VDB Boom Pole
PedroAdamastor posted a topic in EquipmentHello everyone, I have an old VDB boom with over 10 years old. I disassembled it to clean, washed the tubes and collars and I will lubricate the threads with silicone grease as I read here on the forum. I would like to know what products you use after cleaning the tubes. Pledge polish? Carnauba Paste Wax (Turtle Wax or other)? Collinite 845 Liquid Insulator Wax? Thanks
Aluminum vs. Carbon Fiber...Just curious. I wanted to know for any of you out there, is an aluminum pole really that bad compared to a carbon fiber pole? In my career I've only used carbon fiber because of the stigmatism of the heavy aluminum pole. I'm looking to buy a longer second pole and I am under a bit of a budget. I've seen some good products on eBay but I am skeptical of getting an aluminum pole (These are going for a cheaper price and I'm betting it's because they are less in demand.). I just wanted to know if this would be a huge mistake to even consider or is it just merely preference? I use right now a K-Tek KEG-88CC Avalon Series "Traveler. I'm upgrading my gear and would like to have a longer pole, just in case I get into that type of situation. It won't be a most of the jobs I do (ENG, "run and gun"). My currently pole goes from 1'11"-7'4". Your thought? Thanks
Lightest, longest, quietest boom pole?
saadasound posted a topic in EquipmentI've been using K-tek for some time now, but wanted to know of any other boom poles that would be able to extend 12ft. and over, be lightweight and have low/no noise with an internal coiled cable. Any suggestions? Thanks, Steve
