Ktek has always been known for making quality boom poles and providing great service. However there shock mount offerings were a bit lacking till now. The Nautilus is a new way of providing microphone shock absorption and comes with two sets of bands depending upon the weight of your microphone. The shock mount also has a unique rail system that allows you to easily move the bands to wherever you want them. With a price well under $100.00 it is a winner. It worked well with my heavy MKH 416 and with my much lighter CMIT 5U. I am happy to have it in my kit.
