This is a follow-on to my mic blimp instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Microphone-Blimp/). In that Instructable, I used a paint roller handle in construction of the blimp, so that I could use an extensible paint pole as my boom by screwing the pole into the handle. Note the use of the leather nail bag clipped into the belt, holding the base of the boom to lessen operator fatigue.
