Rycote Super-Shield vs Super-Blimp: What is the difference?


Recommended Posts

I am in need of a new windshield for my 416. I came across the Rycote Super-Shield and the Super-Blimp. Is there a big difference between them? To me, they seem identical except for color and the Super-Shield has a pistol grip. Is that it?

I *think* the Super-Shield and the Super-Blimp are mostly the same. My memory is the the Super-Blimp was made specifically for some Rode microphones...perhaps it was some sort of cross-promotion or bundle. Maybe check to see if they have the same strength Lyre mounts... If those are the same (and they're what you want for a 416) and the Super-Blimp is a lot less expensive, then maybe it'll work just fine.

 

Perhaps compare the isolation you get with the Super-Shield's cable compared to Rycote's (more expensive) Modular Windshield with its conn box.

Thanks for the input. I am checking out the modular windshield.
