Rode PG2-R Reviews

Great Product!

This cable is the ideal length and stiffness. The junction where the large part of the cable meets the smaller cable is ideal for any kind of custom bracket one might make. Just the ticket for putting on my camera and keeping the cable from dangling in the way of things.

Do you really need this?

The Rode PG2-R Pistol Grip Shockmount works with either this Pro Cable or a longer, standard XLR cable.  A standard XLR cable can quickly be run from your microphone, pasted through a strain relief pinch point and then through grooves on either side of the handle. If you are using the pistol grip connected to a field mixer/recorder a single cable works well to connect mic and mixer.  When using a boom pole with an internal cable, the PG2-R Pro Cable is a short cable that can stay with the pistol grip when removed from the boom, providing a single connection point at the base of the pistol grip. The male XLR connector has a groove that matches a ring in the PG2-R Pistol Grip to further secure the connector in the pistol grip.

Probably the best solution, money aside.

It is ridiculously overpriced, but I had a budget to burn so I got it and am certainly happy to have it. I worry about the thin cable when connecting and disconnecting the microphone, but once its all together it is much more stable than running an xlr through the Rode hands it self.

NEVER TAKE IT OFF

This is a specific cable for my Rode blimp. I never disconnect it from the blimp. It makes connecting and disconnecting an XLR cable much simpler than routing the cable from the inside to the outside of the blimp. Only real downside is the cost, but it works well.

Very expensive (propietary) ca

Yes, it is very expensive. Yes, it is perfect for what it was designed. Would I buy it again? Let's put it in this way, this is my 3rd cable, one for each Rode Shotgun shock mount. I love Rode products. They are very reliable and their warranty is insane!

question

Can a Blimp be placed on top of this? also, will it hold short condenser mics like Audix SCX1-HC?
Asked by: Andres D.
The PG2-R Pistol Grip Shockmount is only a pistol grip. It will not fit inside a blimp. The Audix is only 4.09 long and the pistol grip is 9.4 long. But if you look close you can see the rear mount can be moved forward shortening the distance. So I think you should be able to move the mounts close enough that you can use the Audix.

Will this fit an AT8035?
Asked by: Willow
Hello Willow, you may need to check the dimensions of the AT8035 and compare them to the PG2-R. The PG2-R does work with the Rode NTG2, so you could also compare the dimensions to it.
