The FlexWand™ has a large flex section near the center of the stand that couples the stand and the wand. There is also a mini-gooseneck between the end of the wand and the microphone head. The lower section of the stand is 3/4” in diameter and the 24 inch wand is 5/16” in diameter with a 4.5” mini-gooseneck connected at the end which connects to the microphone head. The combination of a mid-flex section and the mini-flex on the wand provide precise aiming and an infinite combination of placement options between 1.5 ft and 7 ft. The stand itself is fitted with a round metal base.
