he used to own 460's and sold them to me. I bought a small set of screens for them from him. He had a larger set to sell too, but I passed.

Kewl.... What are you using for OUTDOOR Taping on your 460's?

I don't own the 460s anymore, but when i did I just used the regular wind screens. Of course I was never in any high wind situations so...

I think (but am not positive) the Shure A81WS will fit.

large DPA's + Dead Rats are just as effective as the Shure's.  I prefer this setup over the Shure's, because Shure's hog a lot of bag space.  A lot.   ;)

I did some listening and testing last summer with windscreens. C-483's with various windscreens I had. I used the Shures, DPA's, and some generic smaller models I had. I choose the ck63's because they were the most affected by wind. Anyway, I concluded that the Shures provided the best protection and sounded the best overall. The Shures have an air space that they create around the capsules that the other wind screens do not. I thought the DPA's attenuated the high end a bit and didn't provide the same wind noise suppression that the Shures did. I use the Shures outdoors now.
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

very interesting - i use the DPAs for most outdoor settings because i think they handle most light outdoor wind the best without affecting the sound too much. the shures are great for gusty wind but i felt they affected the highs quite noticeably
