This is a really lovely mic, and anyone contemplating buying it will have seen the excellent reviews.
However there is one thing that comes to light when you wish to, for example, record a singing guitarist. For this you may wish to use figure of 8 pattern, and you will then need to have the mic horizontal in this application (i.e. you are trying to reject the guitar sound when using this mic on the vocal (and vice-versa). The supplied shock mount is quite narrow so that in the horizontal position the cradle won't support the mic in the centre of the cradle unless the securing nut is really well tightened. If you don't do that, a metal strut touches another metal strut thus effectively bypassing the point of the shock mount. Initially I thought there was a problem here, but actually its OK if you are careful!
Apart from this I can't rate the mic highly enough!
