Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced wind gag for the mic of my G2? I would only be using it a few times a year, so don't want to spend too much on it.

Which G2?

If it's a tie mic. go for Rycote Furries, Undercovers or Overcovers.

If it's a hand-held transmitter use the Sennheiser foam windshield for it and get a Rycote special Windjammer to go over the foam.

B&H in the USA stock the pearstone range that fit the ME2, they are in multi packs but it is always handy to have spares: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=pearstone+me2&N=0&InitialSearch=yes

They are very good value and a lot cheaper than the sennheiser ones, watch for the postage though as it can be quite high for small items so worth ordering several items.

Am I the only one who clicked on this expecting a joke? :)

Yes it's the ME2 lav John. Thanks for the link Gary. I've got plenty of wind gags Stuart - can't think of one appropriate for a high class forum like this though. ;)

A good price on undercovers: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250582072126&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

They sell the others on their ebay store too!

Must admit, never heard of undercovers. Can they be used with a clip instead of an adhesive pad?

The whole point of undercovers is that they are worn under clothing and they do need the adhesive pad.

Though I suppose you could use two undercovers, one each side of the adhesive, plus a clip - but I don't think it would work as well.
