Yes that's correct, we are just finishing a boom test/review at the moment. We have also just done a mast extension one which will be released very shortly.

The booms are all alloy and in the 180-240ish range. We will aim to do a Carbon boom test later in the year. We have a range of 13 different booms in the test, so it has been pretty interesting. The test aims to evaluate features such as ease of use, stiffness, weight, shape, width etc etc.

It will be released in the August issue of Boards Mag and a couple of weeks after here on Boardseeker.

A boombox is capable of receiving radio stations and playing recorded music (usually cassettes or CDs), usually at relatively high volume.
