The World's Most Affordable Carbon Fiber Boom Pole
We are proud to introduce the Lux Falcon Boom, the world's lowest priced carbon fiber boom pole of all time (If you find one cheaper, let us know)!
Professional boom poles can be expensive, and that's fine for those with larger budgets, but for years there have been no good options for independent film makers who would like to step up to the quality offered by a carbon fiber boom.
Even $150-$200 dollars will only get you an aluminum pole which is far from ideal. Aside from being very heavy and therefore hard to use for extended periods of time, aluminum poles can amplify tiny vibrations and ruin recordings while carbon fiber poles absorb and reduce these vibrations. If you are going to go aluminum, you might as well save your money and use a cheap painter's pole, which is what many end up doing.
But paint poles suck! That is why we have produced the Falcon Boom, the first truly affordable 100% carbon fiber, twist-locking professional boom pole, available in 9ft. and just under 12 ft.
When developing this boom, our main objective was to keep the price low.
To give you a reference point, a very popular budget pole is the 10ft aluminum rode boompole which sells for $150. Before now this was pretty much the best you could get for that price range.
All that will change, however, because now you can get a 12 foot* 100% carbon fiber Lux Falcon Boom for just $135. Yep, that's 15 dollars cheaper and 2 feet longer than the rode pole and most importatly it is made of carbon fiber! We also offer a 9 foot version for just $99.
*Boom is about 11.9 feet long.
Though a low price point was our priority when developing this boom, we worked hard to ensure it's quality was still high enough that we would personally feel more than comfortable using on a professional set. (which we have been doing for the past 3 months by the way, and with great results!)
After extensive on set testing, we feel that the quality of our product is astonishing for the price. While it probably won't measure up to a $700 pole that will last for 15 years, chances are you don't need a $700 pole that will last 15 years. You need an affordable boom that will last you 3-5 years and will get the job done in a way that no other boom for under $150 or even $250 can, and that is why we are selling the Falcon Boom, the most affordable carbon fiber boom on the market.
The Falcon Boom is made with high quality carbon fiber and has durable, rubber grip twist-locks. It comes in a 3' 6.2" - 9' version and a 3' 7.4" - 11' 10.4" version. The top of the pole features a standard 5/8th inch male microphone thread which is compatible with virtually all shock-mounts. Occasionally a 5/8th to 3/8th inch adapter is needed but typically shock-mounts that require this will include it. The base of the pole has a removable protective rubber end cap. We do not offer internally cabled poles at this time, but if you can solder XLR connections, it is very easy to do this yourself.
The Falcon Boom is extremely lightweight even when compared to other boom poles. The 9 foot version weighs just 0.72 pounds and the 12 foot just 1.05 pounds. This makes long shoots much easier than with a heavier boom.
