    Works Well at Most Angles

    These generally work very well. However, on small condenser microphones such as the Rode NT5 they don't form a very tight seal on the back of the microphone allowing some wind to get in. I recommend using something to tighten the seal or adjusting your microphones position though this can be impossible to do effectively when using a stereo configuration like ORTF where you are vulnerable to the wind in an 180 degree arc.

    Not The Best Name

    Works fine and does the job it's intended for, but who thought up that awful name? I don't know if the folks at Rode are unfamiliar with US boxing, but this thing screams to be called the "Don King".

    Dead :/

    Got it to use with the Tascam DR-40 internal stereo mic set. It didn't remove wind noise for winds over about 8 knots or so. The DR-40 is sensitive to handling noise, and also picked up the ruffling noise of the wind on the Dead Kitten. Other issues- the elastic band broke after about ten uses. So it didn't do the job. No worries. I'll use the DR-40 indoors (no wind) on a mini tripod or rubber mat, and outdoors, I'll use external inputs.
