The RØDE PG2 Pistol Grip Shock Mount is designed to reduce handling noise when recording with shotgun microphones.
It supports microphones with a diameter of 19-20mm or 21-22.5mm using the supplied interchangeable mounts, and a handy release lever on the mount allows for quick and easy adjustment of the microphone angle.
Cable management is an integral design feature of the PG2 pistol grip, with the cable running through the handle assembly to minimise any handling noise or clutter. Additional cable security is provided on either side of the rubber shock mount.
The PG2 can be operated by hand or attached to a boompole via the 3/8" thread attachment at the base.
Compatible microphones : NTG-1, NTG-2, NTG-3

Very interchangeable with other RODE products- handy if you already have any RODE equipment. Only problem is that if you are not careful with it you hear quite a bit of handling noise- though a good shotgun mic helps with that problem. Still, very good for the price.
I use it primarily with a quite long shotgun Mic and while the Mic has a little weight & length to it, the grip of the shock mounts holds it well, I find it is best to separate the rubber parts that hold the Mic as far apart as possible by sliding them in opposite directions on the shaft of the Mic stem for even greater stability.
