Anybody have any tips to safeguard against this happening? When we first got our K-Tek pole -- which I love by the way -- my first thought was, "how do I know whether I'm slowly winding or unwinding the cord with each use?" It can be a little finicky to close all the way. I sometimes have to shake it a little to keep the cord from binding.

There is no way to prevent a tangle in the coiled cord .... but I would pull the XLR out of the bottom from time to time to let the cord untwist and remove any tangles.

By the way, a coiled boom must be used at full extension or there will be excessive slap of the cable inside. Be sure that the cable is tied at the top so it is quite snug inside when the pole is fully extended.

An internal coiled cord is a compromise that is very handy but it requires some care.

Manfred! Thank you. This has been concerning me for about 2 years. I kinda could use a boomie now. BUT so far I have got away with bamboo and gaffer tape, ok it doesn't "look" pro . . . You have now pursued me.

Full extension eh?

Grazie
