Yes, I'm aware that he sells this kit, but I'm not interested in the kit, only an element. Don't see the point in paying $30 for a bunch of foam when the elements used to go for $44. I have a couple of Bob's elements that I've used to restore other mics, but they're as rare as hen's teeth these days - unless you want to purchase the kit (which I don't). Nothing against Bob - his stuff is the best, but not willing to pay that price.

Yes, Mouser has a number of dynamic elements - all of which have different characteristics (sensitivity, etc.). I guess what I'm looking for is advice on how important sensitivity is on choosing a proper ham radio element, and out of the choices they offer, not sure which one would be the best option.
Could go with an electret element via RatShack, just not sure what sort of audio quality I'd get - just looking for the best solution.

If it ain't broke, use a bigger tool and swing with more force.
