Excerpt: I used the Rode NTG1 without the WS6 Deluxe Windshield and got lots of wind noise while outside, but once I put on this windshield the wind noise was gone. Worked very effectively. I'm estimating the conditions were 10-15 mph gusts of wind.
Excerpt: My first wind muff and I must say, top of the line! Fits perfectly around my ntg-2. I'm using it for recording on a sail boat and it muffles the high wind speeds so well that I'm left with near perfect sound. So glad I went with this one. I know the price is a little steep, but its a worth while product. Better to buy this once than buy a cheaper one and end up buying yet another one because you're not satisfied with the results.
Excerpt: only 2 weeks ago I was recording sound using two Sennheiser ME66 with two of these installed to the Roland R-26, on the waterfront in Redhook in crazy wind and they worked really great! The sound from C100 on camera microphones was completely unusable not even for syncing...
Excerpt: This windshield is good value for the money and does a decent job in keeping wind noise away from the microphone.

Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: We purchased this mic as part of our FIRST shotgun mic kit for a small start up HDSLR Video production company. We put this on a Rode NTG-2 Mic. Pros: Fits on snug and easily Does not interfere with shock mount or changing batteries Looks legit, adds to your professional look Seems to drop wind noise very well Cons: None so far Recommended
