Very satisfied!

Total rating

I bought it for field and voice recording and after over a year of intense use I must say I'm very happy with it.

It's very light and easy to assemble and disassemble.

Wind protection with included dead cat is just perfect without influencing the sound quality.

Handling noise isn't an issue as well, I even used the shock-mount itself in studio, as I don't really own a generic shock-mount for my NTG-2... Apart from scaring the voice-actors off with its uncanny view, it did its job perfectly.

The only con for me is the build quality of some components. The handle became slightly unstable after few months of use (the clip used to adjust the angle), which sometimes poses a minor problem when used on a long boom.

Oh, and 2 or 3 rubber bands used for mounting the mic were broken when I bought it (brand new), but there were a lot of spare ones so I didn't mind.

Other than that, I'm actually thinking about buying a second one.

No-brainer for the money

Overall production quality is a standard for Rode products - good & sturdy, even a bit more of a quality than I expected for this amount of money.
Really loved the angle fixation mechanism, you can adjust it very fast & easy.
Cable fixation spot at the end of the slide mechanism is long enough to fit two microphone cables at once.
Comes with some extras, including microphone cap, which can cover its connectors.
Good suspension mechanism, with microphone holders of several shapes (rounded & cut sides for Sennheiser MKH series mics) & sizes.
Will recommend it to everyone.

Excellent Product.
