Thanks for this. I've been wanting to get one of these ever since I got my camera over a year ago. Came close to buying one from Amazon, but I like that this one has a pocket for an extra SD card.
Edit: I found a similar strap on Amazon for just a little less than this, through a 3rd party but fulfilled by Amazon. It got some bad reviews about the screw, but the screw looks different than the one on meritline. One of the reviews said there's seemed to be better quality so maybe they changed it. I wonder if it's the same strap. I'd much rather order through Amazon to get Prime shipping, but I don't know.
I use these straps. I LOVE them. This exact knock off Quick Rapid is the strap that I use. I have both the single and the dual strap.
I use them with my 5D Mark 3, 5D Mark 2, 70-200 etc. I have all L lenses, and I have never had any issues with the straps.
I do not use the tripod screw for my hook-up point. I install a hand strap, and put a key ring on the hand strap, and use that as my connection point. For increased agility while shooting, I can quickly unhook the strap and use only the hand strap, then when I want to put the camera down, I just clip it back to the strap. I love my setup for weddings.
Wow that seems like a great deal... but it scares me to even think of hanging a thousand dollar plus camera from a 12 dollar strap.
I was researching the Black Rapids but just bought a Carry Speed strap and love it.
i guess i wanted to be different or something =)
