My CS-Pro sling just arrived and the thing I don't care for is how the plate attaches to the bottom of my camera. No washer, gasket, etc. It's metal to plastic. Most head plates have some sort of washer to reduce scratching. E-mailed CarrySpeed and was told they have several generations of plates now...some with a rubber gasket of some sort. We'll see. The fold out version is the ball head connector folding in to "reduce scratching" hmm?

but overall, how's the design and how does it hold up? i'm looking to use a 5D2 + 24-70 + bat grip on this bad boy. at most 5D2 + grip + 70-200L IS f2.8.

would be interested in some pics and reviews.

It's almost August and I haven't seen the Carry Speed website get updated with the new plate. :,( tomorrow is my b-day and I was hoping to order one soon.

I sent a few pic's of the plate to CarrySpeed customer service and was told I have the latest generation plate. I returned it. Don't like how the tripod plate attaches. Over time it will scratch the camera badly. I suppose I could fabricate something to make it work but I'd rather not do that. I'm looking at Black Rapid

I got one. Haven't used it much yet. I already had the spiderpro holster, so the deciding factor for me was compatibility with what I had.

Guys - here's how I've solved my own concerns on a safety strap (in this case, a BR). Allows me to use my Arca-based L-bracket easily with my strap. Makes getting off/on easier, and I think there is less wear on the body from the strap hardware, too...
