Re: i dont trust these damn things no matter what.

Blackrapid customer support says the CR-2 is not meant for replacing broken CR-2 on the RS DR-1 yet the site states:

"The BlackRapid ConnectR-2 (Black) is designed as an upgrade for an original R-Strap and a replacement for the R-S4, R-S5 or RS DR1 straps. It has a smooth swivel with a positive lock to ensure the safety of the camera or lens."

BTW, does B&H Photo censor certain negative reviews that describe catastrophic product failures?  I posted a review of a Newertech Guardian Maximus RAID enclosure that damaged both drives and it never showed up on their customer review page.

I also posted a review with pictures of the DR-1 with broken CR-2 and it never showed up.  There are 1-star reviews because people didn't like the product.
