This blimp fits well over my existing NTG-2 Rode microphone. Other users have commented on how large it is but I have no problems with this.

Plus:
Quite bigger than expected
acts fantastic in the wind
Very lightweight
Handles bumps fairly
Multiple adapters for different mics and spare rubber is always nice.

Minus:
Lack of attention to detail where parts are glued (glue spills)
Brush is too hard to comb deadcat's fur.

I'm very happy with this purchase. Really performs excellent.

By Amazon Customer on 3 April 2014
I used one for my masters film at university and it did the job very well. Mine came with a fur exterior too. However for a bit of plastic £189 is laughable. I bought the handle here for £40 so £140 for a plastic tube is a joke. Back to the product review however, slightly big but worked well with my Rode NTG-2 and it handled outside conditions well.

Buyer beware - the photo listed is of the new improved Blimp 2, however the product they are really selling is the old version, I have just had to return mine which has resulted in missing a shoot.

The arm bit is not very strong and tends to shift under the weight. The quality is not that nice, but it does the job. It's Very bulky. And the fur comes off on black clothes often.
