    MK Boom

    Question for the older generation here (are there any others??).

    I have just acquired a carbon MK boom. The length is set with plastic collars forcing fingers into circular grooves on the extension tubes.
    Same as Fibrespar used to do. The trouble is the fingers wear out after a while and then the arms slip.

    Now I have owned MK carbon booms for years and they always use a pin and hole method for setting the length.

    So have I bought a repaired boom? In fairness it looks unused.
    Or is it so old it predates the hole and pin design?

    Prabably the latter. I still have one with the circular grooves. I've had it at least ten years. When I bought it it was last years model so I got it for a very good price (aluminium boom price), and I think the following year (i.e. the year I bought it) they switched to pin in hole stylee. I guess they just bought bits from elsewhere to make up into booms anyway.
