I used the Rode the other night, I think it's a great bar but a little bulky because of the risers. I now have four different stereo bars, buying spree obviously, but the Rode is a good compromise if you don't mind the bulk & plastic construction. I think for my needs the Followinbob 12" bar has the lowest profile & weight so I may return the Rode since it's redundant. Regardless the 20 cm spacing is great , it will support LD microphones, the 90/110 degree angle templates on the top are nice & the ability to move spacers to the top or bottom gives it great flexibility.
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.

I got the Rode bar today & I'll be running it tonight. I'm still not thrilled with it being plastic & it's a little bulky in the bag but otherwise it's nice. I think for the money it's a good deal, the spacers do in fact snap in & seem secure, the knobs being large as previously mentioned is a bonus & the fact that it allows for a 20cm spread between bodies that will equate to an even further distance between caps is the real kicker for me.

Yeah, as enamored as I am with machined aluminum, it would have likely doubled the price.  The 20cm spread is nice.  Let us know what you think after you run it.  I hope to get out to a small festival this weekend and put it up.

If machined aluminum is what you're looking for, I doubt you'd do better than followinbob's wide bars:

Got one of those too.  But, I'm a slut.

Super cheap stereo mic bar! 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Microphone-Stereo-T-Bar-Thread-Adapter-Stand-Mount-Two-Apart-H50-Bar-Pro-Black-/252115757402?hash=item3ab345295a

Same one also sold here:
http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Professional-Mic-Stereo-Bar-Black-T-Bar-Thread-Adapter-Stand-Mount-Two-Apart-H50-Professional-New/404390_821363549.html

And I have two of the longer ones which I've recommended before:
http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Professional-Microphone-Stereo-Bar-T-Bar-Thread-Adapter-Beam-Two-Stand-Adjustable-Drum-Mount-Wholesale-Hot/404390_514425580.html

The only thing I'll say against the longer one is that the knobs are 5/8" and one of them I cross-threaded one of the knobs by accident and it's pretty chewed up now.  I actually haven't used it since getting my Followinbob 24" bar, since his knobs are nice machined 3/8" and will probably last forever.

I have one of the Rode bars and yes it is plastic but it is well designed and has worked fine for my ADK-tl mics so it can handle weight. No flexing or bouncing. It also worked well recently for my Line Audio CM3 mics and made for a nice light setup that I was able to just stuff in my bag at the end of the day. The included risers work well for X-Y setups. I thought $50 was a bit pricey for molded plastic but it has been a handy stereo bar so I guess its worth it.

I wonder if and when Rode is going to release the wide version of that bar shown here and described around 2:30:

Just picked up one of these. I’m a little confused at the listing though. Does anyone know what size thread is on the underside? Also what will I need to run my Naks on this with standard mic clips?

It's standard 5/8X27 thread. I wish somebody made an affordable tap and die and thread chaser for this size.

That would be nice! I have one of the Manfroto three mic bars but something lighter with measurements would be great. I also wish Manfroto made additional mic fixtures for their bar. Maybe they do as a replacement part. I haven\t looked into that.
