The universal clip is sturdy, rugged and well-built, much more so than the Ovid microphone itself! The spring is very strong, and the jaws are lined with rubber, ensuring a strong grip.
The screwable holder for the Ovid microphone is a bit annoying to use, as it consists of two parts and must be completely unscrewed to install or remove the microphone, and can only hold it at one angle. Once installed, it holds the microphone sturdily.
The jaws are very strong, but also rather small! It?s only possible to grip surfaces up to about 6mm thick with the clip.
At first I thought there was no fitted compartment for this clip in the Ovid system case, but it turns out it fits very nicely into the bottom of the rectangular cut-out where the Ovid microphone cable goes.
