light, transparent sounding and no booming issues!

12.01.2016
The quality is very good, but as with any blimp, you don't want to sit on it! This isn't one of those hard blimps from years ago, it's a squishy modern beast.

Compared to the competition it is a bit on the girthy side, which can be annoying when packing the thing away, especially when you're also traveling with heavy grip equipment, you don't want a C-stand rolling over onto this large rodent of a blimp! But as long as you know this thing isn't indestructible like a piece of grip account, you'll be absolutely fine. Blimps used day in day out, will inevitably have to be replaced, but this Rode sells for such a great price, that this isn't a real pain in the wallet.

Performance? Well it's pretty much stunning, I always use it with the wind muff, so keep that in mind. You can put this thing through gale force winds and you'll get clean audio, no distortion, the high frequencies don't sound muffled! It's a very transparent "sounding" blimp, unlike some others.

When booming, the support - Rycote's Lyre system, along with the microphone cable shows it's excellence, there is no problem when booming this mic.

The only thing I would prefer, would be for it to be narrower. It would be easier to pack, better for ENG work (Electronic News Gathering) as a narrower blimp makes for an easier to maneuver blimp on a pole.

You can't really go wrong with this blimp, it's not Rycote expensive and just as good!

Perfect wind protection!

Jay237921, 15.06.2018
I bought the Rode Blimp MKII couple of months ago from Thomann. I have been using this product on my location recording when recording in exterior environments to protect my shotgun mic from capturing wind noise.

Pros:
- The Rode Blimp really does the job and reduce a huge amount of wind noise when used
- Cheap price compared to its rivals like the Rycote products
- very lightweight which makes it convenient when holding the boom pole for several minutes over your shoulders.
- Neutrik connectors

Cons:
-the only con about this rode blimp is the wire that goes from the back of the windshield to the bottom of the handle. I think it is a bit exposed and not really secure if you are clumsy on a set the cable might be damaged easily. it would have been nice from Rode is this cable was hidden. But again if you take a good care of your equipment nothing can go wrong.

In a nutshell, this is a great product from Rode, I am really satisfied with its performance. If you are looking for a windshield system and can't afford the high Rycote prices I highly recommend buying the Rode Blimp MKII from Thomann.
