Another vote for the Movo WSTT50. They are bomber. Thanks, capnhook for the recommendation a while back. They go on the mics every time.

I'm sure it's here somewhere but how do those compare to the movo WS80 (furry ones)?

I'm not sure, but I have used the WSTT 50s outdoors during pretty heavy wind that I was sure would ruin the tape and never heard a thing. They are both under $16 a piece with free shipping, so I may buy some WS80s when I buy more microphones.

I have the ws80's and have been happy.  I posted this earlier.....

one show out of about 10 or so with just a tad of noise and it was crazy windy!

I switched earlier than I thought and so it's probably more like 20 shows but I did have some noise recently.  it wasn't bad but I hate wind noise!  now that said even the BAS would let through a tad if it got too bad out.

I heard the non-fuzzy ones are better than the fuzzy ones for heavy wind.

I used the WST50s this weekend and the gusts were prob 25 mph at the worst times and 15 mph fairly steadily. No wind noise.

so the WST50s are 3cm.  looking back at my order for the ws80 I got 6cm.  not sure why but assume someone here told me to  ???  ;D   so the 3cm will be fine for the ak caps?  just measured and that would put the end on the inside flush with the end of the cap and won't cover the part where the active screws in (rain protection).  I always thought there should be space between end of cap and the screen but I really have no idea.....

The AK active connector is a little longer than the nbob/Schoeps or the MBHO active cartridges that I use but I'm guessing they would probably fit but possibly not cover the threads. Mine cover all the way out to the end of the collette. 

 Having a gap at the capsule front to help trap some still air sure wouldn't hurt - so since you probably wouldn't be getting anything much smaller or more effective I would roll with what you have.

thanks.  with the 6cm there's a little less than an inch or so in front of the cap.  looks like the wst80 is the close to  the same as the 50 except 6cm so an inch bigger.

revisiting this thread.

So friday night running akgck1 > nbob. the akg w32's that were ordered had not arrived but the big shures did so decided since no other choice would run those

ceiling fans going full tilt and about 15 minutes in to the set GIANT AC starts blowing. Nothing on the recording

had i had the smaller screens i probably would have left the shures behind. Was a new venue for me so was going in blind. lesson learned again.
