K-Tek Poles are constructed from high-density graphite selected for maximum strength and minimum weight. Eight layers of dent-proof graphite are precision ground and then burnished to produce a low handling-noise ﬁnish.
The K-CCR is a 3″ base where the XLR comes out the side and the mushroom base attaches to the end. With longer poles, this allows the operator to rest the pole on its base between takes without damaging the wiring.
Telescoping sections are connected with our proprietary locking system. The “captive collet” is held within a collar (there’s nothing floating outside the collar) and with a gentle twist, the collar squeezes the collet to lock the pole in position. The collar is studded with our unique dimple design to offer a pleasant touch and good grip under all conditions, even in extreme temperatures and humidity.
The bottom coupling allows boom operators to attach a variety of accessories. The pole is available uncabled with our proprietory mushroom base or cabled with an internal coil cable with a bottom or side connector (CC or CCR). A stereo coiled cable is available with the same accessories. Our Transmitter adapter can be attached for wireless microphone adapters. For straight internal cabling, a “ﬂow-through” base is available (FT or FTS).
