Hi alfio!
I've used the Joby Pro Sling for about 2 months. I've had concerns about the bottom mount as well but I can report that there has been no signs at all of the screw comming loose. I do re-/de-mount the strap every time I put into / take the camera out of my bag. This version comes with the tether (can be bought seperatly) which I've used and will continue to use just for peace of mind. I've written a bit about it here...

Hi 9ck!

I did by the Joby strap as well (with plate and tether!) and posted about it in your original thread. Thanks for your review of the strap; it was quite helpful.

Regarding re-/de-mounting each time you put it in the bag, are you concerned at all with wear and tear on the tripod mount? I leave it on for that reason, though it is a bit askew in the bag with it on. Just curious.

Cheers!

Hi mlschless!
I wouldn't worry about wear and tear on the tripod mount. I actually only demount the Joby when I have it on the battery grip on. I have the Vanguard UpRize 45 and there just doesn't seam to be space for the Joby strap mount.
