The Carry Speed straps DESTROY every single black rapid model. It's more comfortable, the buckle doesn't damage the camera cosmetically, and the attachment is arca swiss compatible. Thus I never have to remove my strap just to mount my camera on the tripod. Black Rapid products require you to remove its device before mounting to a tripod unless you add other items, thus introducing more weak spots into your setup.

Looks like a decent setup though I see three problems.

1. Having the length adjustment in the front is not a feature.  When you bring the camera up it pushes the adjustment and changes the length of your strap.  Dumb design.

2. Plastic clip in the strap to take it off, I don't care if you need to push two buttons to unclip it, still a weak point.  Should be continuous webbing.

3. The plate won't work if you have an l-plate for your camera.  I don't want that small plate, I want the proper RRS plate for my cam.

Sorry, doesn't destroy the BR, I'll keep mine unless I find something better.
