Excerpt: Comes with additional bands. Easy to slip boom mic into and out of the mount. The included adapter screw enables the mount to be used with different stands or holders. This mount is excellent when used with a boom pole.
Excerpt: I thought it would be a great product like the sm3 and that it only does not have a shoe mount.It is so , but their is no screw to hold the head in position, once your boom is up it will be loose and you cant boom with an angle.
I had to strap a Velcro and attache it to the boom.
Excerpt: I wish the bands could be tightened, but then that would mess with the sound transfer, wouldn't it? But for what I use it for, recording local bands live, it's a great deal. If this is mounted on a mobile/moving platform (camera, truck bed, etc.), then I expect it would be problematic.
Excerpt: As far as entry level shock mounts go, this is a decent option. My only complaint is that the previous model had a screw at the mount's pivot point to adjust tension, a feature missing from this item.
Excerpt: So i have a K-Tek Boom pole and this fits perfectly on it. I don't really see any thing wrong about the product nor do i see anything great or outstanding. It just gets the job done. Although i do find it a little pricey for the the way it is manufactured. then again who am i to judge on the prices.
Excerpt: It fits shock mounts and small diaphragm mics really well. Nice fit and finish. No way to tighten the swivel neck. Any mic with a small amount of weight will make the shockmount head swivel moving the mic. Sadly the version with the shoemount has it. WHY Rode?
Excerpt: You cannot tighten the hinge that allows the shock mount to be angled. The shotgun falls over without a mic cable attached, and at best the mic points at the floor instead of your talent. DO NOT BUY.
