Ambient QP 450 or Ambient QL 550 poles have the sturdiness of their origin. QP Series proposes poles with 4 segments, manufactured with a special spiral graphite fibre module, 1.5 mm thick, thus ensuring sturdiness in compression mode and an exceptional stiffness and consequently reduced handling noise. But that implies rather long folded up poles, therefore not very practical for transportation, which reach common extended lengths with a relatively small extension ratio; these poles will be thus less ambivalent. Oversized locking collars are as soft as effective; the rubber mushroom base will avoid shock transmission to the microphone.
DC Audiovisuel also proposes QL series, with a thicker graphite fibre (1 mm), therefore lighter, but also more flexible and fragile because of a manufacture by cross winding and not spiralling, making it however possible to have 5 segments with a hardly higher extension ratio.
Baby pole QP 450, with a 3.2/1 extension ratio and a length extending from 50 to 160 cm, thanks to its sturdiness, will be ideal for all and sundry interviews or used as a handle for a stereo pair. Its equivalent QL 550 (53-180 cm, 3.4/1 extension ratio), more fragile, is only valuable for its weight.
