I needed a solid portable lightweight boom arm to handle the weight of the apeture LS 300x with large modifiers. I own a few different boom arms from various companies and they worked pretty well. its just when extended all the way out and you notice it bending. Well that scares me. When it might be over camera or talent, just not willing to take that chance.
Did a little research and came across the Avenger Black Mini Boom arm. Its exactly what I was looking for. really solid construction but still relatively light for packing and travel.
Even extended all the way out there is no bow or bend at all. Its built really well and happy i found it.
