Re: Blackrapid strap almost killed $9000 worth of gear

Black Rapid is an awful design, unfortunately. I see videos of pro photographers whose cameras are dangling on their shoulders with only the tripod threads holding their cameras to the strap and it's a disaster waiting to happen. Surprised so many "pros" use this POS.

I use this instead, and it's very secure to the RRS base plate I purchased: http://www.reallyrightstuff.com/Magpul-Gen-2-MS4-Dual-QD-Sling
