Spyder mount for Soundelux U195

Any other options for a shockmount for this mic.A couple of prongs just broke on it last night.Better off to simple weld them back on or is there another compatible shockmount?

Peluso makes one for about $75.00

The soundelux 195 shockmount is an embarassment. I've seen better shockmounts shipped with $99 chinese mics.
Luckily just about any LDC shockmount will work with the 195.
I'm using one that came with a cheapo ADK mic and it works fine.

The Soundelux shockmounts are pitiful... I had one fall apart on me with a major label artist.. I was talking about how great this mic is and he looked at it and touched the mic pushing it forward about 2 inches, and BAM the whole spider system disintegrated in about two seconds.... snap, whoosh. "Yeah, cool mic Tony! This thing sucks, though..." was all I heard. I would never use one in a session again.

At AES I they had a new screw mount version on display. Much more secure than the original, but it can't be retrofit to older mics.
