I'm looking at the BlackRapid hand straps and they all seem very well made but my question is with the carabiner/metal hardware, isn't that doing to rub against the camera and destroy the camera exterior???

For example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Rapid-Wrist-Strap-w-FR-3-for-DSLR-Camera-Secure-Nylon-Adjustable-/400511028679?pt=US_Camera_Straps_Hand_Grips&hash=item5d40514dc7

That carabiner will rub and destroy the camera underside.

In a word, no.  I use the sling strap, not the wrist strap but the connection point is exactly the same.  I use it frequently, and have never had a problem with anything rubbing the exterior.  The handgrip is showing more wear than anything, but that's from me and not any accessory.
