Yer probably right. I can't find the regular fixed length boom arm on the site to make an apples-apples comparison... looks like the tele-boom is the only model of boom arm sold separately? (that could dress-up a naked tripod stand... as I've found that naked tripod mic stands are of very limited use)
Personally... I prefer the regular fixed length boom arm for most applications. The fixed length arm can be adjusted (slide) within the pivot head... generally offering sufficient adjustment for most applications. Those tele-booms are nice in select applications, but it's more stuff to fall apart... the set-screw for the tele-lock seems especially susceptible to the laws of entropy.
