Windscreen for AT 4050?

Does anyone have a good windscreen that they use on an Audio Technica 4050?

The only one I've seen online is the AT8137 and it's like 40 dollars everywhere. Is it really that good? It looks like a pretty normal foam windscreen. I don't get why it's so much.

Any ideas for cheaper ones that would fit the 4050 decently? I really want to do some outdoor recordings with my 4050 and I need some kinda wind protection. Thanks for any ideas.

Well I once used SM7b's windscreen for an AT4050.

Thanks for the idea. Did the sm7b windscreen fit well? It looks like it's not that much cheaper, at least the one I saw.

Any other ideas? Are these foam windscreens pretty effective for light wind or are there any other alternatives I should look at? Thanks again for the help.
