Matthias Richter Posted September 16, 2019 Report Share Posted September 16, 2019 after years of using a Panamic Maxi boom pole I wanted to get my boom-op a new one. Bought a 3-segment Maxi-pole that turned out to be noisy regardless of our adjustments of the end stops. Every minor twist or turn was audible and my boom op would feel that "clong" within the pole. Sent it back to Panamic where it was replaced by a new one although they could not replicate our problem. The new one was fine for the first few days. Now it gives us headache too. It feels like the pole is working in itself, finding the new centre of gravity. You turn the last segment (the one with the rubberized material) for a cue by a quarter or something and right after the next segment seems to twist within the pole making a audible knock. It´s driving me nuts. If anyone got any idea as to what is going on - please let me know. Matthias Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
