I had been wanting a boom for a long time but most of them are quite expensive. Then I came across this and the price was definitely right. It does the job and certainly holds everything I’ve put on it without any trouble. Still, the quality feels a bit so-so, and I’m not a huge fan of the way you attach it to the light stand. Perhaps other booms work the same way but I suspect the more expensive ones will be easier to work with.
Conclusion: does the job if you’re on a budget.
