The standard hole Rycote 18cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics features an aerodynamic shape and surface structure made from the company's 3D-Tex material, which allows for attenuation of wind noise with acoustic transparency. It is ideal for a variety of sound recording applications including video, ENG and more.

The 18cm Super-Softie has no rigid internal structure, thus it causes virtually no polar pattern distortion. It's robust design has been engineered for use in challenging environments, and if it becomes rain-soaked, it can be squeezed out and shaken dry quickly. Also, if it becomes coated with dust it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.

    For mics slots no further than 7.1" (18 cm) from the front of the mic
    Additional Information Finding the correct slip-on windshield will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone. Slip-on windshields are designed for cylindrical shotgun mics, ranging from 19-25 mm in diameter. 


    For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore a 18 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 18 cm from the front of the mic. 


    The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight in order to achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings, Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm) or Large (24-25 mm).


    Diameter 2.8 - 3.9" (70 - 100 mm)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rycote Super-Softie I tested the new Rycote Super-Softie is a 5-10 mph wind today and it didn't perform very well. I was not happy to hear the wind noise with such a slight breeze. I suppose I'll need to look for another solution. Thanks.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heavier than the furry version, less wind protection. Yes, i got the revised version of the Super Softie. It's still disappointing. It's heavier than the Rycote furry slip-on, and yet provides less wind protection. Some reviews have said they think it's less transparent than the furry models, but acknowledge it doesn't do well in wind.......... even though it's supposed to be a wind screen. I should have returned mine. I got one to replace a busted up old furry windscreen, and it's a letdown.
