Heh looks rather phallic.
In for 1.

One of my peeves about this site, is nobody ever follows up on any discussion... it's all debates and advice in a thread... and any future information dies when the deal expires.

My point... I'd like to hear some follow-up from those of you who buy the Takstar. I looked at it on Amazon... and at the price, it seems too good to be true... and when something seems too good to be true I always read the 1-2 star reviews. There are a lot of 1-star saying the Takstar is no better than the standard camera mic, and might be worse.

I already have the non-lyre version of the Rode, and it works as you'd expect. Compared to other higher-end products (even by Rode)... I don't see the video mic pro as a particularly good value, but at $179 it's reasonable enough that I'm happy to finally fix the one thing that has bugged me... the rubber-band mounts. The Lyre suspension is way way way better.

So... hopefully a like-new one with the rubber-bands will go for around $120 on craigs.

If anyone has both the Rode, and the Takstar... comments on that would be appreciated... because the one thing I notice about the internet is most people need to convince everyone else that their choice was the right one... and when something is cheap, that goes through the roof (I think those people are often wanting to convince themselves about their choice... so they push their opinion until they get some other people to agree with them)... I can't help feeling that... within reason... you get what you pay for.

How does compare to their regular $60 one that comes with a deadcat? I'm guessing it's better but how or why?
