Exactly what we needed!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
We purchased two boom poles to be used for passing cordless microphones so that congregation members could comment during meetings. We've been using them for a couple of weeks now, and the quality seems to match the price. For our purposes, they should last to time indefinite.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The cushioned grips are a nice touch, though not entirely necessary for our application. We really appreciate the ability to adjust the length anywhere from 3 to 8 feet. Ours is a small congregation, so we keep them set at 5' feet (just right to reach the center or outer edge of the audience). But it's great knowing that we have the option to make adjustments should our needs change in the future.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
The length is surprisingly easy to adjust, and stays exactly where it's set without difficulties. It was also very easy to install our microphone holders at the end of each pole. The threads matched perfectly and stay tight without the use of tools.
How is the tone?
We do experience some transfer of sound through the mics if contact is made with the poles anywhere other than the cushioned areas. But it is minimal and to be expected.
Your general opinion of this product.
These boom poles are exactly what we were looking for at a very fair price. We are completely happy with the decision to go with these items for use in our congregation.
