Pistol Grip Shock Mount
The PG2-R is a Pistol Grip Shock Mount designed to reduce handling noise when recording with shotgun microphones in hand held or boompole mounted applications. The PG2-R is equipped with dual Rycote Lyre mounts to ensure maximum isolation from any handling vibrations, four possible mounting points to suit the complete range of compatible RØDE shotgun microphones, and integrated cable management clip.
The newly designed lightweight handle delivers improvements in both ergonomics and functionality. The cushioned grip houses multiple cable mounting points, with a dedicated space for the PG2-R Pro Cable XLR connector to terminate flush with the base for ease of connectivity. A heavy duty locking nut on the side of the handle ensures smooth adjustment of your microphone angle, whilst a 3/8" thread at the base of the handle provides secure connection to boompoles and microphone stands.
3/8" Thread at the Base of the Handle
This thread allows you to securely mount the entire pistol grip on the end of a boom pole or microphone stand for any non-handheld applications.

Heavy-Duty Tensioning Clamp
The heavy-duty locking nut on the side of the handle ensures smooth adjustment of your microphone angle. It locks the entire top half of the grip firmly into place, meaning the mic position won't change even with the most vigorous of movements.

You can take apart part of the grip so you can feed an xlr cable through it. Once you put it back together, the cable is pretty secure and doesn't bang around except for the cable between the mic and the grip. There's no secure attachments for that part but as long as you use just the right amount of cable it shouldn't be a problem.
It's a little heavy if you want to boom with it, but it's completely viable. Plus, you don't need the screw adapter that most shockmounts need!
- Minor con. The instructions are a little unclear. It's similar to Ikea's instructions. I couldn't figure how to take out the gray foam rubber part out for cable insertion and had to look it up on youtube (you squeeze the bottom end and take it out the bottom first. It often takes a good 10 seconds to do it).
- It's part of what makes this mount secure, but switching out between shockmounts, mics, or removing/inserting cables takes quite a bit of time. I would practice doing so at home before going out into the field where time may be crucial. Plus you need the hex screw (it comes with it), so if you forget to bring it and don't have the same size hex screw around, you can't switch anything out except maybe the cable.
Other than that, it's a great mount, would recommend to anyone.
But it does the job. I've done dozens and dozens of interviews without the help of a pistol grip, and by the end of an hour-long interview, have been supporting one arm by the elbow with the opposite hand -- it's tiring! This does a lot to help not only with tired hands, but also with keeping your posture upright.
My microphone also rattles with handling noise, so this is also a great fix in those cases, too! Well made.
The feature of running the cable through the grip is very nice and works really well, it keeps like cable out of your way and reduces any handling noise from the cable. The two different shockmount sizes are nice, I still found the largest to be a little snug on my shotgun, but that's better than being too loose.
Overall very happy with it, Rhodes has a good reputation and this pistol grip didn't disappoint.
