The New QXS Light Boom Poles
Utilizing a 5-segment design along with light-weight yet durable 1mm pull-wind carbon fiber tubes,
the new QXS Boompoles feature:
Knurled collars - The all-new collars feature a machined knurl similar to the popular QS boom for
outstanding grip, especially with gloves.
Enhanced Segment Locking - The optimized angle of the new compression rings and mating nuts with
steeper threads deliver increased locking of the segments.
Designed for flexibility in work
The QXS series was specifically designed for documentary and ENG booming work. That’s why we built the QXS
series poles with 5 segments, effectively delivering a better collapsed to extended ratio. This enables
easy transportation while providing long lengths when needed.
With an understanding of the rigors that the material must endure in everyday work situations, we designed
the QXS pull-braiding carbon fiber tubes with a 1mm wall thickness to achieve light-weight with high
While all mechanical parts are machined out of aircraft aluminum, the 3/8″ thread is made out of
solid stainless steel to survive thousands of microphone changes.
Internal soft felt bushings ensure rattle free operation and no seizing by dirt, humidity or cold
temperatures. Once necessary collet and felt can easily be replaced on maintenance by the user at minimal
cost to give an “as new” feel.
When every moment counts
In ENG applications, situations arise where every second counts. Therefore, the all-new collars feature a
machined knurl that provides outstanding grip, to secure a fast and confident handling of the pole.
Furthermore, the new locking system designed for the 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.
Additionally, Ambient offers three different internal cabling options with multiple connector outlet variations
to prevent cable “Spaghetti” when that critical situation occurs. The cabled booms are equipped with in-house
manufactured, ultra-thin cables optimized for field audio conditions. With an effective shielding and a
polyurethane insulation, these durable cables provide excellent endurance while maintaining flexibility
even in temperatures as low as -40° C (-40° F).
The QXS is available in 5 different lengths.
