Rycote 010323 overview

  • 1Description

The Super-Blimp NTG from Rycote is a complete windshield and shock-mounting system for the Rode NTG series and similar shotgun microphones. The kit provides patented Lyre Technology and a broadcast industry basket to protect against shocks, vibrations, and wind noise—all with acoustic transparency. A Windjammer, designed to slip over the basket, protects against extreme wind noise.

A Rycote 90° Shortie XLR connector is situated inside the basket, complete with an integral RF shield to protect against the kind of dirty audio attributed to radio interference. Furthermore, a boom adapter and pistol grip handle are included with the unit. Releasing the microphone from the basket is easy thanks to its quick-release pods.

  • Rode: NTG1, NTG2, NTG3, NTG4, NTG4+

    Rycote 010323 reviews

    Super-Blimp NTG for Shotgun Microphones is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a Rycote For the money there's nothing better, you will find cons on other reviews, such as: the locking mechanism isn't as good as the more expensive Rycote systems and that's true. But keep in mind the price of this blimp, it gets the job done, you can choose which way to mount it, using the handle or the not, the deadcat doesn't need a tie, it's super lightweight compared to a Rode blimp or other blimp this size. If you can afford the more expensive one, by all means get it, but this is a really good addition to the kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from best you can get for the value sure it doesn't come in a dedicated box, sure the build quality feels plasticy and the handle system is a bit complicated (they give you two mount options, why not just one that is versatile enough?) but for the price and to my knowledge, sure it's the best you can get!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small! It's smaller than Rode Blimp system and that is the most advantage point I think for ENG location sound. I just put it in my backpack when mobility is the most important for my job. Wind protection function is sufficient.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money I purchased this in November of 2016, so I've had some time to really use it. PROS - Excellent at blocking wind. Works just as it should. - Quiet suspension. - Fairly light weight. - Decent system for removing the zepplin from the mount. Maybe a little faster than the traditional Rycote slide on style. The small downside to this is the mounting O does give your boom slightly less clearance in low ceiling enviroments and door ways. - The cabling is very modern. The XLR input is spaced from the pole for use with a plug on trasmitter and the XLR connector for the microphone is compact. The cable itself is configured in a way that puts minimal stress on the XLR connector (like a com-box would). CONS - Cheap plastic. Not the worst but it doesn't feel like the nicer Rycote systems. - The handle for adjusting the angle of the blimp does not lock tightly (like it does on nicer Rycote's). It feels like if you tighten it too much, it might break or strip the tightening mecanism. Even at it's tightest, you can still adjust the angle of the boom with your hand and not much force. It's not a huge deal but it is annoying from time to time. All in all, it's a decent system. Great bang for your buck. Perfect for Indie film, ENG and Doc stuff.
