PANAMIC BOOM POLES (FISHPOLES) - Carbon fibre

Panamic boom poles are elegantly hand-crafted in the UK from the highest quality carbon fibre. They are extremely lightweight, with superb balance and a wear-resistant nylon-web handle which provides additional comfort. The entire range, which includes three, four and five section poles ranging from 0.73 to 5.00 metres in length, have silent operating nylon bushes, precision locking-rings and titanium tips.

Panamic poles are seen by many in the film and TV industry as the best in their field, and have achieved an exceptional reputation for build-quality, reliability and a long working life. Their sound pedigree (pun intended!) extends back to 1972 when award-winning sound recordist Colin Charles began manufacturing the first generation of hand-held poles in Watford. Canford acquired Panamic in 2007, which saw manufacturing move to Canford’s Portland (Dorset) site along with key manufacturing personnel.

They are available in mini, midi or maxi sizes, this denoting the size of the outermost section (the ‘handle’), and with three, four or five sections. All tips are manufactured from titanium for strength and resistance to damage. Fixed tips have the industry-standard 3/8 inch threads. Detachable tips have two different threads, one at each end, 3/8 inch and 5/16 inch (an old film-industry standard). The poles have silent and smooth-operating nylon bushes, precision, knurled locking-rings (‘thimbles’) and a resilient rubber foot. All components are hand-crafted and replaceable.
