How do you guys like this strap/sling? I'm thinking about buying it soon.

I'm also considering one as well. My only concern is the load being put on the tripod socket.

Strap is comfortable. There is nothing wrong with putting weight on the tripod socket. OEM tripod socket are very strong. If you use an aftermarket grip, I would be cautious as the plate for the tripod screw can be plastic and not metal. Check my site for review on the RS-7.

Sounds good, I do use an OEM grip, and my 3LT mounting plate is designed to be compatible with the Black Rapid fastener, so I think I'm gonna try one out. I'm curious about the RS Sport also.

I have a review on that as well. Of the RS-7 and RS-Sport, I like the Sport. I liked the underarm attachment. This prevented the strap from sliding. But I sold my BlackRapid straps and now use CarrySpeed. The reason why I switched to CarrySpeed is because it works with my Spider Holster and I don't have to remove any attachments except for disconnecting the strap.

You can make the BR strap system more flexible by affixing the BR screw lug to a Kirk or RRS clamp (Arca Swiss style) then have this clamp alternately grip the plate on your camera. This way, you can quickly switch between the strap and tripod if u like.

If you do some variation of this, use Loctite (non permanent) to keep the lug secure in the clamp.

Ive used the RS7 on both cameras for over a year, and they are brilliant, the only thing is to
get some OpTech connectors/strap to make a safety harness in case the BR connector isnt tightened up on the Black Rapid, I paid a few quid for peace of mind, thess aren't my images but it gives you the idea how to set it up ;) one end connected to the original strap bracket on the body the other as below on the BR.

I like my RS-7 with Herringbone hand strap combo even though I haven't really put them to the test yet.

I just ordered an RS sport and fastener T1. I like to wear my strap sling style, so it should suit me just fine.

Had mine for over a year.
It's the only strap I'll wear.
No safety tether on mine, never a problem.
Also, fwiw, I don't use a grip either.

I've had mine for a couple of years on my 7D, I primarily have a 24-70 2.8 on it as well, so fairly heavy. Never a problem with the actual strap, the only near disaster I had was when the fastener slowly unscrewed one time - just tighten it every time you go out and you'll be fine.
