Where can I get a GIANT boom pole?

I'm talking BIG. Like this: http://www.gearslutz.com/board/attac...ient-booms.jpg

From what I've been told, that is a Manfrotto Super Boom (
Manfrotto 025BS Super Boom with 008BU Stand - Black 025BS B&H
), but the stock boom has been replaced with a flexible telescoping pole (which is....?).

What is it?
Anybody use something like this?
Anybody know other available solutions?

Thank you!

K-Tek has some big ones. Contact them and ask for Dave Fisk. He'll set you up.

That, almost certainly, is an Ambient.

In fact it is an Ambient - it's the same picture on their website.

That Manfrotto is only a baby.

Did the OP contact Dave Fisk at K-Tek like I said? This is what I was talking about:
