Style Name: SM3 Camera Shoe Shockmount
Actually, the other review about having to remove the base to put this shock mount on a tripod is not completely correct. By simply using a $1.85 1/4 20 to 3/8 adapter (which can be had at any camera store) and screwing it into the bottom it can then be placed on any tripod without having to take the unit apart.

The great thing about this shock mount is that it can be used in the hot shoe of a camera or put on the end of a regular boom pole without adding anything or taking off anything. Also tilt adjustable. The distance between the two round holders is about 2 1/4 inches. I use it with a rode NTG-1 boom and also an Oktava. It is expensive for "a piece of plastic," but all shock mounts are expensive and this is about half the cost of many of the others on the market and it is more versitile. The isolation from the rubber bands is great. In fact, I think the isolation from bumps and vibrations is better that those more costly units that have the hard rubber suspension.

I'm so pleased with it and how well it performs and its versatility I'm buying a second one.

See the uploaded customer images for a better way to mount the mic in the rubber bands to address the sagging issue by crossing themselves (I did not experience sag, even if mounting NTG2 straight through, plus a WS6 sock and cable). Plus handy storage for extra bands.

I chose the Rode SM3 over the aftermarket alternatives mainly because of the low profile. It also attaches directly to a Rode Micro Boompole or anything else with a 3/8 stud.

When I pay top dollar for a Rode product I expect it to work in a professional environment and this product has been a disappointment. Yes, it does isolate the handling noise of a boom pole quite well but the rubber bands do not support the weight of my Rode NTG-3 mic. The mic sags in the bands and tends to fall out of the mount in use. Good thing the mic cable was still holding the mic or my mic would have crashed to the ground several times. Plus, you look like a fool when you flub the take because your mic slid out of the mount. I even wrapped a rubber band around the mic base to "catch" on the mount's rubber and the mic still slid out of the mount. This mount sort of works on a static boom but is pretty much worthless on a hand held boom pole.

Style Name: SM6 Shockmount w/ Pop Filter Verified Purchase
the shock mount is made of sturdy metal, the pop filter is made with two layers of cloth with an air space between them. The filter support telescopes, you can adjust the length and the angle on each end. All the parts are metal so you can crank down hard on the knobs and not break anything. The elastic is stiff enough there is not much sag in any mounting direction. The microphone attaches to a captive treaded ring nut. The whole thing mounts with either standard American microphone stand threads or the smaller European type threads. I tried kicking the stand with the microphone live and yes it reduces the noise greatly but of course not 100%. I thought the price was a little to high but when you consider you get a quality pop filer that is a no-brainer to mount and adjust and remains "put in place" the price is reasonable.

This is NOT a general propose generic shock mount. It is designed for only a few Rode model microphones with threads on the bottom that fit the threaded ring nut.

Style Name: SM3 Camera Shoe Shockmount
This is a Rode shock mount and i'm using it for a Rode shotgun microphone. Seems it cannot handle the weight of their own microphone very well. Even with an XLR cable attached, the microphone is a bit heavy in the front with a dead cat installed. The bands cannot hold up the microphone so it doesn't point straight and sort of points down about 5 degrees.

The unit still functions properly but I'd like to see something work better for their own microphones.

Oh, one more thing. I have the microphone that can use phantom power from the XLR connector or a AA battery. Forget ever using a AA battery when using this mount. You have to remove the microphone completely and that's very time consuming. Remember that you cannot leave those batteries installed because there's no on/off switch on those microphones so you need to remove them frequently. Pulling the microphone through these bands has to be done very carefully to not break them or pop them off.

Style Name: SM6 Shockmount w/ Pop Filter
I purchased this shock mount w/pop filter for use with my Rode Procaster. Like a previous review stated it does not extend far enough for a front address mic like the Rode Procaster / Podcaster. I had a custom extention arm made that works great. I could provide these arms for those interested.

This is a nice little device. Good shotgun mounts are tough to find because the circumferences of microphones vary. This mount solves the problem by suspending the microphone in a flexible network of elastics. The effectiveness of this approach will depend on the weight and shape of your mic--the elastics aren't stretched super tight and don't seem extraordinarily strong. A heavier mic can cause them to shift and the mic to sag. And though it hasn't happened, I could picture the elastic cradle widening enough for the mic to barrel out of the mount completely during an overhead-boom shot.

I only use Rode mics and have both an NTG-3 and an NTS-1. I can't picture this thing holding my NTS-1, but for that mic you should get the Rode SM6 Professional Shock Mount with Integrated Pop Shield anyway. It's a great mount, better than the SM3 for condensers but not as good for shotguns (and too heavy for camera-mounted work). My Rode NTG3 fits nicely in the SM3, mounted in the DSLR coldshoe, parallel to the ground. When you put a foam cover or deadcat on, the mic gets a little front-heavy and leans forward just a touch. I compensate by tightening back the patch cable. It's no big deal. This mount isolates from stabilizer hum and other sounds the camera makes. With the NTG3 as cargo, it makes the Rode Videomic sound like a broken AM radio.
