QXS Improvements over the former QX Series

 

Knurled collars for all-weather grip
The all-new collars designed for the QXS Series Boom Poles feature a machined knurl similar to the popular QS boom that provides outstanding grip, especially with gloves.

Enhanced Segment Locking
Once we decided to create a new pole specifically designed for documentary and ENG booming work, we asked our mechanical engineering team to attempt to optimize even our most proven parts - and we were astonished with the results.

The new locking system designed for the new QXS Boom Poles locks faster and easier than previous designs while providing a stronger lock between segments– for even better prevention of slipping and twisting.  By modifying the angle of the compression rings in combination with a steeper thread of the mating nuts, we were able to improve upon an already outstanding locking mechanism– a perfect fit for a run-and-gun 5-segment design.

The QXS range up to QXS 5100 can also be fitted with an internal
coiled cable.

  • Straight Flow-thru Cable
  • Coiled cable, side exit (use QAPL)
  • Coiled cable, bottom exit 



For Side-exit cables we include a“QAPL” that allows a plug-on transmitter to be fixed to the boom via the XLR plug. The TX is
folded back on the boom axis so the bottom end is free for the
boom operator to hold or to be set on the ground.
