In addition to RØDE shotguns, the blimp accommodates most shotgun microphones up to 325mm (12 ¾”) in length. The Blimp attaches to any standard boompole via 3/8" thread attachment at the base. The Universal Blimp Mount is available as an option to remove the handle when the Blimp is being used primarily on a boompole to reduce weight.

An oversize thread allows easy and intuitive re-attachment of the domes, avoiding clip systems that are difficult to use and vulnerable to breaking.
