Hey, I was looking at the maxi mattpoles and just curious which length extension pole people tend to use more? I do not have the budget for both the 8'-14' and the 4.5'-8', but I am curious if you find yourself using one over the other. Thank you

I seem to always use the longer ones, maybe because they're useful for wider rooms where a stand would be in the shot but with a shorter span, maybe it's more likely in a narrower room, like a
kitchen or something where you could use a smaller unit and fit it next to an actor, on a baby plate on top of a refrigerator or something close by.

Hey, i spelled it wrong, its a matthpole from mattews. It is essentially a heavy duty extension pole that you can put up in a room to hang lights or equip off of.
