I'm looking for a mini wind shield for my Zoom H1. I have looked and seen that Rycote don't make one for it. However, a company called Redhead do. Has anyone used Redhead products?

I've not used one but here's a great demonstration on how effective it can be:
I have a Redhead and I can't say enough good things about it. I've had my Zoom H4 since they were first released and I hardly used it because of how sensitive to wind the on-board microphones are. When I bought the Redhead it turned my H4 from a useless recorder to something I never leave the house with. Just yesterday I was recording on coming car-bys with the window open as I was driving down the road!
And naturally being the Star Wars geek that I am, I bought the Lil'Chewy :)
sorry for jumping on your thread but its related .. I was on location in Cuba this past week and found the stock Sony windscreen for my D-50 wouldn't cut out enough wind. I feel like I needed a giant fuzzy hat for my D-50 the wind was quite strong .. any suggestions for a larger windscreen or a better solution for strong wind ??
I buy mine from Shirley who owns Gig Wig Windscreens in Tennessee USA.
