Detailed Description

The KP18VCCR, Mighty Boompole has a collapsed length of 59″ (149.9 cm) and an extended length of 18’3″ (5.58 m) and only weighs 3.1 lbs. (1.4 kg). This 5-section Boompole features a removable headpiece for cable reconfiguration without soldering. The top attachment is a 3/8″ – 16 male thread and the bottom has a removable rubber bumper. Included is a coiled cable with Mighty Boom Right Angle connector (KPCK18V) and bottom Male 3-pin XLR side exit (KPCCR). Made in the USA.

Replacing the famous K202CCR Klassic boompole, the KP18VCCR combines everything operators worldwide loved about the K102 with the immense advances and benefits of the Mighty Boom Pole family. Sticking to the 5 sections of its K202 heritage, the KP18VCCR also offers a slightly smaller outside diameter on the bottom section compared to the Mighty Booms with six sections.

The New K-Tek Klassic Poles offer increased interchangeability with its removable headpiece. Gone are the soldered and sealed poles of the past. Today’s redesigned headpiece, after removing a standard sized set screw, simply threads on and off the tube smoothly. The cable of choice can be removed or installed without soldering. The boompole is readily transformed to un-cabled, coil cabled or with a transmitter at the top or the bottom. There are no more time-consuming transformations and no need to purchase a completely new system just to comply with a cabling change.

K-Tek has designed poles that are more rigid and have a shorter collapsed length that is desired in today’s production environment. The Mighty Boompoles maintain the original light weight of the tubes, yet the new design features added strength. Also, adding a sixth section and wider tubes increases the stiffness and optimizes handling balance. The result is quicker cuing and more user control of the microphone.

Another new benefit is a change to the locking collars. The traditional K-Tek captive collett has been modified with a thicker yet smoother surface allowing for more subtle, gradual extension of each section. A new anodizing process combined with changing the exterior dimples to oval divets gives a better grip and smoother feel when opening and closing each collar. The finish between the tubes has also been modified so the Migthy sleekly glides open and closed. New Migthy poles are hand-burnished to diffuse handling noise.

Compatible with the KPCK18V cable kit and side kick transmitter adapter (KPTA) module to allow for use with a wireless transmitter.
