                It's not as effective as a full blimp, but it offers a great light weight wind protection for light breezes and mild wind. I use it with the Rode NTG-3 and it's a perfect fit.

                      Working in direct sound, the former "windbreak" was burned by mistake. Excellent product I use with NTG3. I would like a better design.

                        I bought this for my Rode NTG-3 and it fits nicely. It's a little long so there isn't much of the mic showing out the rear end of it, which makes it hard to attach a shock mount. I use a Rycote lyre shock mount which needs about 2 inches of mic to attach to. When fully inserted the NTG-3 has only 1.5 inches sticking out the end of the windshield. I end up attaching the shock mount over the connection between the mic and the XLR cable. The XLR cable plug is approx. the same diameter as the mic so it works. The windshield performs well enough. It's not a good as full blimp, but then it's not as heavy/cumbersome as a full blimp either, and it's better than a foam windshield. It's lightweight so I use it on my DSLR rig. The fur doesn't seem fragile or easy to fall out. It covers the full length of the active end of the mic with all the slots. Overall I'm pleased with it.

                              I have purchased a couple of these windshields to use when a full blimp isn't needed since they are much more compact and quick. These are much less expensive than going the Rycote windshield route, and while the Rycote may be better, these are much less expensive and perform pretty well.

                              Note that the WS7, when used with a NTG3, needs a pretty short shock mount. The short K-Tek KSSM is perfect.

                                  I already have a Rode Blimp for my NTG3, but that's a bit bulky and overkill for mild wind, so I got this. Works well. Not as good as the Blimp, but feather light and compact.

                                    I saw the Rode dealer video, showing this WS-7 on an NTG-3 about 2 feet directly in front of a 12" table fan running at fast speed. The op was speaking into the mic and you couldn't hear any wind. Good enough for me, I bought one and am very happy with it.

                                    If it has been packed away flat, you should always brush the hairs out as straight as possible to let them do their job.

                                    For very high outdoor wind, a Blimp is better but it needs another operator.

                                      I use this windshield for professional film, tv, and documentary shoots. Great for anything outdoors that doesn't require a blimp and run & gun outdoor to indoor shots.

                                      Very effective in mild to medium winds, fits perfect on the NTG3, rubber part feels rugged and seem like it will last a long time. $50-60 cheaper than Rycote softie.

                                      My boom op said it feels slightly heavier than the Rycote softie. The extra weight tends to make the Rycote INV-7 mount flex a bit. Would like to use the Rode SM4 shock mount but since the neck tension isn't adjustable I have to look elsewhere.

                                        I use this windshield with a Sennheiser ME-80 and it's fits perfectly. I have used this on two jobs and had no problems shielding the microphone which was on the end of a boom pole from both movement wind, and environment wind of at times as high as 5-10 mph. I have noticed very little high frequency loss when using this product.
                                        The one drawback is this item has significant weight and hanging on the end of a shotgun microphone being suspended in a band type shock mount, it does weigh the end of the mic a bit.
