^^ Yes it does. I use the spider holster on my Think Tank Pro Speed belt.

Thank you for your quick reply, but I guess my question is more about the compatibility of Carry Speed's little round ball sticking out of the tripod hole on the bottom of my camera working with the Spider Holster system. The ball would be Carry Speed's design, specifically this one (external link), while the Spider Holster would be this one (external link).
Although they are not designed to be, it would seem that these two systems would be compatible.
Hopefully someone knows the answer to this question, if not I'll gladly volunteer to be the guinea pig. Thank you all in advance for your help.

I apologize for the double post, but I seem to have found my answer on another forum. I'll link it here so anybody who is curious can read.

I will be calling Carry Speed tomorrow to confirm, but others say apparently the Carry Speed pin is compatible with the Spider Holster:

Also found this : "The spider pins don't really fit the carry speed system without a bit of sanding, but the carry speed pins fit the spider holsters."
from here...

I use the black widow holster, the smaller version of spider holster.

Yes, the CS ballhead nut fits in the Spider Holster. I will take a picture when I get home.

I have this setup. Carry Speed strap, Custom SLR M-Plate and ThinkTank Pro Speed belt. It all works perfectly

The Spider pin fits fine in the CS system. The Spider pin is a little bigger than the CS pin but should still work fine without sanding. The locking mechanism for the CS goes over the Spider pin with no problem either.

Update... so I'm back after 2 weeks of vacation.

I ordered the FS-Slim and got a FS Pro in a CS Pro box, along with the hand strap. It was just before before my trip and no way I could get a replacement in time for the right one.. I suppose I could have asked for 2nd day by 10am but I had too much to do.

I planned on complaining once I got home.

So the short report-

After 7 days in Walt Disney World with 10-15 hour days and the camera being on my shoulder for about 95% of the time each day.... it was amazing.

Seriously, no pain and very easy to use. I had over 7,500 shutter snaps over the 7 days we were there. Only about 400 of those were from a tripod from our balcony at Contemporary.

I would say it was a 50/50 split of using the Canon 18-135 STM lens and The Sigma 17-50 f2.8 OS lens (about twice as heavy as the 18-135).

We did the Christmas Party one night and I had the camera, with 17+50 f2.8 and a 430exII speedlight hanging off of me as well.

So now That I'm back, I'm glad they screwed up and sent me the FSpro. I don't know if the narrower strap would have been less comfortable.

The mounting plate with folding ball was nice too Made it easier to set on the tables when I was eating.

I was able to position the camera where ever I wanted it to hang, be it side or in front of me, pretty much. At a good height as well.

Anyway, I'm glad I have it and I wish the camera bag I bought (Kata KT D-3N1-20 Sling/Backpack) for the trip. With one lens in it, the 430ex flash, spare battery and a light sphere it was less comfortable than the heavier camera hanging off my neck.

The post about the Kata KT D 3n1-20 will have to wait, I'm exhausted. I'm going to try and return it. Good idea but uncomfortable and I have serious reservations about the zippers holding up.

i currently have the RS-7 Blackrapid and just happen to learn about the Carryspeeds.

Question to CS owners, i had a concern with sling straps (including BR RS-7) having only one connection-tripod mount screw. With the CS FS plate on there with a screw, are you confident the plate and screw connection won't come off? or even the screw breaking off?

Thinking of getting the CS FS Slim but i'm thinking of adding another back-up connector just incase that single point of connection fails in the future. TIA

The Carry Speed plates and screws are incredible stout, and since the pivot point is not the screw, there is not alot of chance of it backing out in one job, shoot, or day. Having said that I do check my screw and plate periodically just in case. I love the CS System.

I just purchased the FS-slim and it is on delivery. I hope I will not regret! also I hope I can live with the ballhead sticking out. to me, it's not neat. most importantly, the fs-plate must be secure. I understand that the past versions slip out easily with little pressure.

My FS-slim has arrived. Its very very good quality and craftsmanship. The neoprene shoulder pad is flexible and bouncy. more comfortable than my BlackRapid. The ballhead is made of very very solid material. You need to touch it to understand. I have not brought it outside yet. at least for now, the plate does not go loose.
Here is my safety mod.

I tape vinyl on my 16-35 body because the metal part can hit it as you can see. The bottom of my old 550D had been scratch by Blackrapid carabiner while in the bag. So I've learned my lesson now.

Mine has never came loose. I like the way the ball swivels so it sets flat on a table. :D
