Sounds like you found what you needed.

I have a Mathews Mini-Boom that sound similar to what you have.

The boom has a section that extends and is a solid piece of metal.

What I did was to take a grinding tool (Dremel) and created a flat spot for the set screw on the shaft.

You have to be certain that you've lined up the set screw with the flat spot (I painted an arrow) or gets real loose if it slides around the shaft.
