Boom Grip Diameter Measurements: Sorting Through the Numbers


Just wanted to validate some manufacturers' specs on boom grip size.  I broke out the calipers and measured three carbon wave booms.

The Results (advertised spec is in parentheses)

As you can see, while the Goya boom has the smallest grip, it is far from what is advertised.  1mm is definitely noticeable when you pick up a boom, so its small grip is still very nice.
