I haven't used the more expensive options, but this one seems fine. Nice and sturdy. The twist locks are a bit weird but once you get the hang of them they work fine. Only problem is that it's supposed to allow internal routing of the XLR cable but every single cable I have has ends too large to fit...

Same goes for me..... I bought one after reading the SOS review and liked it a lot.... for ac. guitar and also for performing on stage for my voice. So I bought another one.... great value and great sound. A lot of people seemed to be weird about some Rode mics but this is a real sleeper.

I bought this along with the NTG2 sound kit and it's a pretty good marriage so far. The only thing I can complain about is that every time I adjust it, I can hear a squeaking noise from the mic and shock mount. Maybe there's some sort of technique to prevent it from making any noise.

Great, but tightening sections could be easier to adjust.

Two of the locking mechanisms failed to lock upon the boom's unboxing. Not too difficult to fix, but the bottom line is it wasn't assembled properly.

The pole feels very well made, and does not feel like a pole for this low of price. Only complaint is that the protective tube the pole comes in isn't the greatest, but I was planning on getting a case anyways.

The best part of the pole is cable management, meaning I don't have to worry about dangling cable. The pole collapses to 2'9'' for easy transport. Extends to max 10'.
