Don't make it too heavy. A lot of folks tend to over kill things like this. That just makes them too heavy to conveniently attach and remove.
I have a cheap King Kutter boom pole that I've used and abused for at least 15 years. It will handle anything an N (or 4000) can lift and I can still mount/unmount it alone.
To make a boom pole MUCH more effective add a hydraulic top link to your tractor.
I watched part of that video.
Can't believe anyone would build a boom that long.
