    RODE PSA1 - "Great price, works perfectly, will hold weight"

    Mic boom is very good, quiet in motion and is capable of holding heavy mics and shock mounts including the heavy RODE Procaster/Podcaster models and the BLUE Yeti with shock mount. Attaches easily to desks or tables without tools. Seems pricey, but…
