Alternatives to Sennheiser's blimp

I'll probably be buying the Sennheiser ME66/K6 shotgun mic soon. I'm looking at getting a boom pole and blimp, as well. I've been sorting through B&H's site, looking at relatively cost-effective mic setups, but what I've found is slightly* out of budget.

Sennheiser's MZW-701 blimp windscreen ( and MZS20-1 combo mount/grip/stand ( come to almost $800 CDN, which is more than the mic.

If anyone has the ME66/K6, what do you have in your setup? I'd prefer not to spend more than $400-450 CDN on a blimp and stand (excluding the pole) so if anyone has any suggestions, it would be highly appreciated!

I use one of these for my PDX-10 on camera mic. I haven't heard any wind noise since I put it on. Not sure how clear they are sound-wise but I have no complaints, especially for the price.
