I'd guess 14-16 mm, capsules are 10mm, rubber holder is around 14mm dia, +2=
mm? tube - ball park figure of 16mm ? - but confirm this via frogloggers th=
ey did after all sell you the gear.

Using a couple of foamies designed for dynamic mics with zip ties at the en=
ds should work and will give a decent amount of clearance from the capsule =
to the foam since they are oversized. A pair of (rode) dead cats over those=
 will provide additional wind noise reduction. Whatever is used make sure t=
heres nothing touching the capsule. Ive even mounted capsules in bouncy bal=
ls with foam covers but tended to only used them in the spring. boing.

Light synthetic fabric, fleece or short fake fur also works providing you c=
an make a form inside to keep it from collapsing in on itself, cross stitch=
ing plastic / plastic canvas with large square holes works well for this pu=

Form a cylinder from the plastic and use elastics inside to hold the mic in=
 place. Cover with fabric / fake fur. Fur when wet will loose its effective=
ness, I've used fleece like materials - but tend to shove everything in a r=
ode blimp these days its far less hassle.
