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!
