The Blimp Extension is an add-on component kit for the original RØDE Blimp windshield system that allows the use of long shotgun microphones, including the RØDE NTG8 and any shotgun with barrel length of up to 600mm. The kit includes a 256mm blimp extension piece, two sets of rigid silicone bands, extra long DeadWombat fur windshield and furry brush. Please note that the original RØDE Blimp is required to use this product. It is not currently compatible with the 2014 RØDE Blimp.
Made from carbon fibre, the RØDE Boompole Pro weighs only 535gm (18oz) and, from a compact 810mm (2‘ 8”), extends to a full 3m (10’). Designed for use with professional shotgun microphones such as the RØDE NTG3 as well as the Blimp windshield system, the Boompole Pro joins RØDE’s popular boom pole range which now consists of five models ranging in size, weight, and construction material.
Each of the five pole sections is comprised completely from carbon fibre making it incredible lightweight while maintaining high levels of strength. The sections are easily extendable with one hand thanks to an intuitive twist-lock mechanic. RØDE offers boom pole cable clips as an optional accessory, however the company’s new RØDELink wireless XLR adaptor allows users to record audio from a shotgun microphone on the end of the Boompole Pro without the hassle and possible handling noise of cables.
