  1. I suppose, you ask for the v-lav micro? If so, look for linhuipad ws-1202 on aliexpress. There are also more yellowish foams with 5mm and 0.5mm inside diameter without a particular name. Both work for my similar sized MKE-1.
  2. My experiences with those are not that great (though old). These where not much, once a Ktech once an Ambient. Both produced inverted loops, that required constant maintainance, got stuck and were a pain especially in length>ceiling height stiuations. Another thing is, that I sometimes like to quickly slide the quickpole through the sustaining hand with soft gloves. That would produces movement in the cable and even a center of gravity shift. On top of that, a straight cable has a lot better ratio of overall weight vs center oft gravity, espacially with whatever cable foo on the
  3. I look out for fly reels, mainly on aliexpress. Quite a few offer some room for a mainspring upgrade in the future. Currently I need to choose a cable that works even without reels and springs, so I have some specs to decide on reel dimensions. There are various drag systems for fly/ice reels. Most reels produce a clicking sound, either as an essential part of the system, or they just imitate it as an audible user interface. The latter can be removed. Springs introduce a hell of issues that may be trivial for seat belt, dog leash and vacuum cleaner designers but not for someone with my re
  4. I want to refit my straight cabled QX5100. The plan is to mount some reel system on the bottom end, so a slim cable is desired. As I don't have any of the mentioned around I wonder, what to buy. What are your experiences with these cables or with DPAs slim XLR? What is the outer diameter, RF performance, bending radius of the DAO4010? Would the PVC coating of the 1804A produce significantly more cable noise compared to the cable Ambient sells? Thnx
  5. The connector in the unit might be defective. It could also be a break somewhere in the cable that is effective in a certain bending situation.
  6. A more detailed screen and possibly more modern housing and user interface. I guess it depends.
  7. There is also the NanoVNA-f. No experience with either. RF-Explorer worked well for me in the past with "peak hold".
  8. The MKH 600 may be an option. May I humbly ask why? (The current 3rd gen UMP is quite small by now. The Kortwich phantom boxes are really light)
  9. For reference: I just came across an updated version oft the INV 21. Rycote added some rubber shields to the round bars. That seems to eliminate the swoosh issue. BTW: I've also used a Sairen A1 on it, in light wind. It fits well. It seemed a little less sensitive than the rubber in the Rycote thing that came with the INV-21 set.
  10. Hey, did you choose some paticular nylon product? thnx
  11. If you look out here and there, you might find a deal for a used MKH 816/815 or KMR 82 with a working windshield. I'd prefer those over an MKH-70 but that's only my taste. Anyhow, all those long shotguns are excellent to stalk some roaring stag or pick that bird up in the tree (except ME-67). But by their design, suspension solutions and wind protection are a beast. For short shotguns, there are affordable solutions e.g. from Boya and Rode.
  12. Try Skin Tac wipes before taping hairy skin.
  13. Looking forward on info, what's to come.
  14. On the video Patrick posted, you can see briefly how Jacques inserts an A10 RX with what should be the DB25 Panasonic/Ikegami style connection.
