Better than expected

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It appears to be well made, although I bought a pair and there are some slight differences in the machining of the body that I don't think affects the tonality of the mic. I have so far only used them on one show, but I expect to be grabbing for these mics over and over again.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The frequency response is razor flat, and the mic sounds exactly like the source.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very tight polar pattern, so position is really key, but essentially point it at the source and move on to the next channel.
How is the tone?
This mic sounds amazing! I'm using it on woodwinds in a musical right now and it picks up the flute and double reeds perfectly with minimal leakage of the drums and guitar. I have a HPF on it and no other EQ was necessary. It is the most "musical" shotgun I have used.
