This is my second Rode BLIMP to enable recording in windy conditions. Works well with the NTG-3 series. Plastic construction makes it light, and so far no issues, though its a bit harder to join together than I would expect, so I downed the score to 4 - but does the job. I like the XLR connection on the handle, so its easy to change connection cables. Does take some time to install the mike, so not easy to switch to other configurations quickly. Blocks the wind well, better than a wind shield on a mike direct. Slight sound attenuation at higher frequencies means a tweak in post.
- Greatly reduces handling and wind noise
- Accomodates most shotgun microphones up to 325mm (12 ) in length
- Rycote Lyre suspension system
- Dead Wombat windshield and tail cable included
