Honeycomb grip looks fantastic! Maybe it should be considered for the stock strap rather than a separate add on as it does seen to be more functional and aesthetically pleasing.

way cool.. i do like the honeycomb grip look much better than the original.
how much will it cost to swap?

I've experienced the same issues when wearing a t-shirt etc. however, does this mean if I'd like a honeycomb version then I need to buy a new strap?

Greg has discussed some options but I can't speak on his or Luma's behalf without permission. All I can say is Greg and Luma will take care of you, worry not.

The Honeycomb is now the standard grip for the Cinch.

It is a bit less grippy than the Block Pattern we initially launched with and the Block grip will remain in the line as an accessory for folks who are using the Cinch with lighter cameras and nylon outerwear (those fabrics are very slippery, so more grip is a good thing).

Don't forget, the Cinch is totally modular, there is no need to trade in your whole strap. We are working on figuring out how to make the Honeycomb available to those who bought pre-release Cinches.

That was fast it barely was released after all of those months of testing and now there is already a better strap?

I really don't care about the grip. in fact, it would be nice if it didn't have any.

just my own personal needs :)

But I think that's the point, if you turn it round it has no grip, but it doesn't look great, the newer one looks better.

And like Apple, we can just ship you a new shoulder pad... Unlike Android where if you want the latest update, you get a whole new phone.

I just received my Cinch, complete with honeycomb as standard. Ordered on 5/14 and arrived 5/20. Given all the positive comments I've read here I had set the bar pretty high and at first inspection it looks great. I'll give it a thorough workout this weekend on the 5D mk III.

I have the same problem with my strap and the grippiness as well. I live in Hawaii so am not wearing jackets and such. I always have my strap turned upside down and yes, it is pretty ugly with the squares up. If there is a way to switch the strap to the honeycomb (I got the prerelease strap as well) that would be so great...

If not I can live with it but it would be really appreciated and I would feel much prouder showing off my luma strap (I already got my buddy in SF to buy one - he just got his yesterday, bastard probably got the honeycomb one lol)
