Seriously though, I mounted it on my mic stand and bent the arm of it to sit comfortably in front of my condenser mic and this product has a fantastic feel. It easily mounted securely and fits perfectly on my mic stand. The size is comparable to what I've used in studios, and it looks great as well.
I will update my review when I've given it a solid try during recording.
As far as inhibiting air flow and softening the plosives, this screen works. No question about it. The problem that I have with it and the reason it still sits unused in my mic locker is because it’s bulky and “rebellious”. LOL!
You can adjust the angle of the filter in 3 ways; however, I had some issues. First, the clamp is a pentagon shape. This might work fine for mounting to a round mic stand like a floor stand, but this becomes fiddly when you’re mounting to a square tube. I have the Rode PSA-1 boom arm which is made of square tube. Also, typical of boom arms, each section of it is a set of 2 parallel tubes. The Shure bracket is bulky and doesn’t fit nicely on this sort of thing so I had to monkey with it more than I think should be necessary. Secondly, the flexible neck that holds the screen to the bracket has a mind of its own. I’d bend it in a U shape to position the screen and it would contort out to its own angle and put the screen where I didn’t want it. We had words over it, but in the end, the flexible neck turned out to be not so flexible with my demands. I ended up trying 4 different locations for the bracket in order to try to get the screen to sit where I wanted it. Each time, the “flexible” neck gave me fits and we never got along. At first, I was about to turn into a movie diva and scream, “I can’t work like this! I’ll be in my trailer!” Then I remembered I don’t have a trailer. So instead I had to put this pop filter in a long time out in the mic locker. I doubt I’ll try to work with this filter again. I’ll probably end up trying to find another voice actor to give it to—maybe a competitor who’s trying to audition for roles I want. LOL! I mean, Shure, the actual screen section of this kit works very well for its intended job, but the mounting and support system for it leaves some things to be desired.
The goose neck is adjustable and solid, the clamp feels sturdy, and the materials inspire confidence!
I've owned generic nylon filters, the WindTech PopGard, the Stedman Proscreen XL ($50), and even the JZ PF (a $100 pop filter!!!). And at the end of the day, the Shure Popper Stopper wins hands-down. I should have tried this one out from the beginning.
Is it more expensive than the nameless alternatives online? Yes it is. But not by much! And for how effective it is, it's worth every penny! If you're like me and just have issues blowing and popping your recordings, grab the Shure Popper Stopper. It's only $30 and it saves countless recordings!
Even if a pop still makes it through, with the way the Popper Stopper is designed, it's more-than-easy to edit out with a little Hi-Pass spot treatment!

Once attached and tightened, it is very securely held in place, unperturbed by movement of the arm since.
The filter side of things works very well, and makes a huge difference in reducing pops whilst being otherwise transparent to my ear. The filter is easily adjustable too.
Overall, worth the money for the quality throughout, and good experience.
