      You get what you pay for and these seem like they will tolerate the abuse of rode gigs. I recommend them to anyone that bought cheap stands with booms that broke after the third gig...like me!

          Bought these for their slightly shorter, solid boom. Love the easy, smooth adjusting and smaller footprint for ensemble work. Would replace some of our older boom stands with these if I could.

          Comments about Ultimate Support ULTI-BOOM FB Fixed Boom Arm:

          Ultimate Support stands are almost perfect. They are beefy, strong, and take plenty of abuse. Could be a bit heavy for some. Also, DO NOT pair Ultimate Support boom arms with stands from most other companies. Ultimate Support hardware is just too thick... your stand will be unstable and top-heavy unless you use an Ultimate Support base.

          The one problem with U.S. stands is a big one. The uniquely designed pseudo-wingnut use for rotation adjustments to the boom arm is really a solid design improvement over typical stands. HOWEVER, the tiny knob used for the telescoping arm adjustments is TERRIBLE. U.S. claims is ergonomic, but nothing could be further from the truth. I feel like the bones in my fingers are grinding together when I try to twist this tiny knob into place. Of all the knob designs I've seen, this is probably the worst. It makes the boom arms almost unusable, and looks like it was designed for looks rather than function as it is just too tiny to get a proper grip... even worse, the "slope" of the knob makes it easier for fingers to slip. I buy U.S. bases, but almost always get another brand of boom arm.

          PLEASE FIX THIS DESIGN ULTIMATE SUPPORT!
