But seriously, how much more quality do you expect for a strap that's $50 more?

benji82's comment was stupid to begin with.

I bought a $10 strap because I don't think it will break and I don't think I'll have to buy a new one.

If I did a lot of serious photography (shoot clubs, weddings, etc) then I would probably dish out for a real one just because. However, most people just shoot for fun and won't see much benefit from paying more. Yes, don't buy a $10 ebay lens and expect much, but photography has a pretty much rate of diminishing returns. Yes, a 50mm f1.2 is excellent. But is it really worth 10x more than a 50mm f1.4 for basic use?

Got the Neoprene one from Ebay for like >$8 shipped, didn't feel like opening an account but thanks to OP for openning this thread.

If people are worry about straps, get the spider holster clone - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pro-Quick-Hunte ... 564a5afbb4

I have the official Spider and it is awesome.

Tried to buy, looks like it's sold out after you add to cart :confused:

Edit: Bought the Neoprene one, looks the same minus the bulky zippered pouch

I would never trust my $3k SLR on a cheap strap, especially this design has all the weight hanging on the tripod mount. I guess for a compact entrance level SLR with kit lens, it would be ok.

If you don't trust a solid threaded metal mounting point what do you trust? The little neck strap loops mounted into the plastic frame?!

Spend 5min looking on POTN and you'll find many cases of the original R failing on people. So don't think this knock off Q is any worse. Anyway all my times out with the weight of a 60D and a 70-200L it felt fine, but I tend to keep a hand on the lens when I can just in case.

Besides it is now out of stock at BIC, the one they listed comes with a plate, I got one with a loop at the back of the screw only and the strap is not black. ;)

If you're concerned about the screw mechanism failing which is possible for either Blackrapid or clone or any other strap for that matter, add second level of defence and create your own safety net by tying off a second anchor point.

Do you really think Blackrapid screw is any better than the clones?
